Multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter and producer, Matt Williams, reaches listeners of all tastes with his unique approach to making music. Composing and singing for several completely different bands while performing as a guest regularly with others, Matt is one of the most engaging artists in his region. Equally astonishing in a variety of styles on violin, guitar, mandolin, bass, lap-steel, drums/percussion, and voice; Williams is as deep musically as he is compositionally.

In addition to receiving a Grammy certificate and a 2015 Grammy nomination for his studio work with Secret Agent 23 Skidoo, Matt has been fortunate enough to have shared the stage with such legendary musicians as Ike Stubblefield, Roy "Futureman" Wooten, Kofi Burbridge, Fareed Haque, Grant Green Jr., Nigel Hall, Jennifer Hartswick, and Jeff Sipe. In 2011, Williams joined notable guitarist, Bon Lozaga (Gong, Gongzilla), in a band called
Tiny Boxes, whose performances have included special guests like Jake Cinninger and Joel Cummins of Umphrey's McGee and bassist Ryan Martinie (Mudvayne, Korn).  Williams and bassist, Ryan Reardon are collaborating with 33rd generation Mali-born musician Adama Dembele in the Afrobeat ensemble Zansa, creating an original take on the authentic sounds of West Africa.  Matt also refines his technique playing violin with the popular Gypsy Jazz group, HotPoint Trio.

NEW SOLO ALBUM IN THE WORKS!

"Fake 2 The Face" is the newest single from MW's forthcoming solo album.  There are more pre-released songs on the music page!

Revisiting the production roots of his first two solo studio records, Matt is playing and singing everything you will hear on his next solo release with the exception of a few guest cameo appearances from friends.  The forthcoming album will blend astonishing technique with intuitive songwriting against powerful pop production.  Elements of Hip-Hop, Rock, Fusion Jazz, R n B, Soul and even Bluegrass are combining in the studio one song at a time and will be available one-by-one throughout the recording process.  Stay tuned!
