Bob Williams’s original songs and the stories behind his songs always bring a smile! As a teenager, Bob began writing his own music. Pulling elements from Folk-Rock and Country-Rock, Bob created a sound all of his own. Bob’s songs are personal, irreverent, funny, and sad, and most importantly, true to his heart.
