Bob Williams, in the late 60s a young guitar player from Long Island, NY, began writing his own music as soon as he could play three chords. Pulling elements from Folk-Rock and Country-Rock, Bob created what he thought was a sound all of his own. He was strongly influenced by the folk singers of the 60’s. Later it was the singer songwriters of the 70’s. Bobs musical taste in writing continued along to what developed into what is now called Americana Music. Americana Music is a mix of Roots music, Folk, Country, Bluegrass, Blues and all the good stuff in-between.
With encouragement from family and friends, he produced and released his first CD, No Apologies, in 2015. With his first CD well received, Bob released his second CD in 2018, Ain’t Sorry Yet. In 2020, he released his first CD with The Pearl Street Band, Rocky Road. In 2021 he released Its Good To Be Back, his third solo album. Bob is currently in the process of recording an unnamed EP in Black Mountain NC, with a January 2023 release date.
