“Nicholas Williams owes his stage name to Norton Juster's The Phantom Tollbooth, a 1961 children's book about a young boy who journeys to a magical land.

For the Jacksonville, Fla. folky, the most interesting character was the Whether Man. He only has a few lines in the book, but the Whether Man teaches Milo that "whether or not you find your way, you're bound to find some way." This line stuck with Williams. "I found the message profound enough to try and encapsulate that into the name of the project" he explains. "My aim is to help change or give perspective and relay positivity to whomever I can"”

Q: So you're going on tour in Europe! You're traveling and doing what you love... How excited are you? What are you most excited about?
A: Yes!! It's finally happening. I'm honestly beyond excitement, I thought that it would take at least a few more years before an opportunity in Europe would present itself, and I couldn't be happier to not only be over there this summer, but also to have a few of my bandmates on to enjoy the experience. I'm most excited about the different cultures we're going to be immersed in, and how my music will be received. Thank you for getting in touch :)
