As one critic remarked ….he not only has a great voice …he sings with sincerity. And it is this sincerity and belief in what he sings that sets Williams apart. His song writing is diverse incorporating such influences as Sting, Dylan and Van Morrison. His music is grounded in melody and always tied to the essence of the lyric of which he has deft control. His songs are intelligent but still retain an emotive quality that beguiles the listener. You’ll find yourself humming the tunes long after you’ve heard them.

The album is just Williams singing and accompanied by himself on a grand piano. The whole album of thirteen songs was recorded in just one afternoon In 2011 Williams has recorded and produced his latest album of songs called ‘For What it’s Worth’.
