Grammy Award Winner, JOEY WILLIAMS (Blind Boys / Robert Randolph)
JOEY WILLIAMS PROJECT
JOEY WILLIAMS was born in Brooklyn and raised in Queens New York City. His father made a lasting impression on him when he gave him his first guitar at age six. From that moment on, he knew his life would never be the same. Singing and playing his way through the deep-rooted American Tradition of Gospel Soul, Williams finally ended up in the legendary Mighty Clouds Of Joy as the lead guitarist.
His debut album—”JOEY WILLIAMS PROJECT”—a collection of soul, blues, and funk drenched originals as well as a pair of classic Bob Dylan tunes (“Serve Somebody”, “Believe In You”) and his own unique falsetto version of “People Get Ready” will be released in 2014 by Modern Roots Music and is produced by Williams and long time Blind Boys Collaborator Jimmy Sloan. It also features the Williams/Sloan penned tune “24-Hours”, which a video has been shot for as well.
