After years of headlining rock and country shows and opening up for some of the greatest acts in history in previous bands (supporting Aerosmith, Alice Cooper, Tim McGraw, etc), Minneapolis-native Tony Williams recently began a journey focusing on writing, producing, and performing as a solo artist. Performance is what gives Williams life, and now becomes his focus heading into 2023, where finding ways to thrive while sharing music across the states is paramount. His live performance incorporates an abundance of looping, quickly layering the separate instrumental elements together on the fly (nothing prerecorded) to sound like a full band. This creates a uniquely engaging show for any audience. Williams shared his own songs in direct support of Andy Grammer and rock radio legend Eddie Trunk. Other past performance opportunities have brought him back and forth across the states, Canada, Mexico, over to Europe, and even to the Middle East twice.
His debut solo EP “Destined To Be Real” was released in 2012 showcasing his soaring voice and keen songwriting, while his newest solo offering is now ready for release in 2023, a full-length appropriately entitled “Aestivation”. The final mixes are a blend of driving rock and indie/electronic with a notable drizzle of new wave and progressive influences; these new songs feature huge, melodic choruses that leave your head nodding, and revealingly honest lyrics that leave your heart aching.
