Ronnie Williams / Bio

After years of performing as a bassist and backup vocalist for several touring artists sharing the stage with dozens of national acts, Ronnie felt dissatisfied with the direction his career was going. In 2010, after writing a cache of songs, Ronnie made the bold attempt at becoming a solo artist. Writing, recording, producing, and releasing his first 4 song EP entitled "For What It's Worth" in less than 2 months, it was obvious that this was exactly the direction in which he needed to be headed.

The EP sold more than 1000 copies in it's first run and was ranked as one of Gallery of Sounds top 5 independant releases. The release also landed Ronnie an opening spot for Grand Funk Railroad frontman "Mark Farner" at the FM Kirby Center as well as cataloging on local radio stations around the tri state area, Ireland, Japan, and a massive amount of play in South America.

As things began heading in the right direction, Ronnies older brother and fellow musician, fell ill and passed away in January of 2011. It was a devistating loss for the family and for the entire community in which they performed for together for several years gaining a lot of attention and respect, including Ronnies 3 year running streak as The Weekender Magazines "Best Solo Artist."

After falling ill himself in late 2013, Ronnie took some time off to be with his family and do some healing, spiritual as well as physical, and his insight and outlook on life are as gleaming bright as they could possibly be. He has a story to tell, and the lyrics and musical talent to back it up. It has been a long hard road getting here, but he feels he has finally made it through the never ending obstacle course.
