Tim Williams / Bio

Philadelphia-based Singer/Songwriter Tim Williams, fresh off of the release of his second studio album, Blue Ribbon, has earned the reputation of being one of the hardest working solo acoustic acts in the nation today, playing 300+ live shows annually on stages ranging from New York to Key West to LA and everywhere in between. Hes been direct support for Of Monsters and Men, Butch Walker, Better Than Ezra, Ryan Star, Jon McLaughlin, Tristan Prettyman, Diane Birch, Marc Scibilia, Anya Marina, Jeffrey Gaines, JJAMZ, and members of Live and Barenaked Ladies, among others. Hes travelled the country many times over as the producer and house musician for the multi media talk show MyFixitUpLife and has been featured in numerous film, television and theater productions.

He performed his song Joplin, in Joplin, at the 2nd Anniversary Ceremony on May 22, 2013 to a crowd of thousands, among whom were the tornado victims families, survivors, the Mayor of Joplin, the Governor of Missouri and Director of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano.

Along with his band, he opened the Radio 104.5 Summer Block Party in July 2012 as direct support for Of Monsters and Men & JJAMZ (to a crowd of 6,000) and has played almost every stage in Philadelphia, becoming a mainstay at local venues Bourbon Blue, World Cafe Live, the TLA and Tin Angel. He can be seen before many Phillies home games at Citizens Bank Ballpark playing solo acoustic at McFaddens and XFinity Live. Along with his buddy Chad Burtch, he plays the World Famous Hogs Breath Saloon in Key West 4 weeks a year as Tim and Chad. He was cast in a regional production of RENT and has performed as the musical guest on The Second City mainstage in Chicago twice thanks to cast member Katie Rich and musical director Julie Nichols. You might even catch his mug on a few television commercials and in the Philadelphia-based film Invincible.

As the house musician for MyFixitUpLife with Mark and Theresa, a nationally syndicated home-improvement radio talk show, Tim regularly travels the country and has performed for stars of the DIY Network, HGTVs Property Brothers Drew and Jonathan Scott and The Cousins John and Anthony, This Old House, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Man Caves, and has even appeared on Restaurant: Impossible and Save My Bakery on The Food Network.

Hes received a great deal of radio support in the Philadelphia-area, thanks in large part to multiple in-studio performances at Radio 104.5 and 93.7 WSTW, along with airplay on 93.3 WMMR, 97.5 The Fanatic (ESPN) and 94 WIP. He has performed live on Philadelphia television multiple times, including NBCs The 10! Show, 6ABC News and PHL17s Eye Opener Philadelphia. His music has also been heard many times as bumper music on Fox 29's News at 5.

Tims had the good fortune of playing for tens of thousands of people throughout his career, most notably the band Lifehouse, John Mayer, Jason Aldean, Chef/Author Anthony Bourdain, Top Chefs Jennifer Carroll & Eric Ripert, Members of the Philadelphia Phillies/Eagles/Sixers/Flyers, Broadcasters Troy Aikman & Joe Buck, Dallas Cowboy Michael Irvin, Miami Heats Lebron James & Dwyane Wade, Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter, Extreme Makeovers Ty Pennington, Cheers John Ratzenberger and many more.

With 2 albums, 2009s We Begin and 2012s Blue Ribbon, and a high energy, often comedic stage show, Tim has drawn comparisons to Matt Nathanson, Rob Thomas and Glen Phillips of Toad the Wet Sprocket. Blue Ribbon can be heard on Pandora and both of his albums are available on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify.
