Karl S. Williams … A genre defying, multi-instrumentalist and award-winning artist, with a voice and conviction so powerful it takes your breath away. Karl’s music is timeless and deeply rooted in tradition yet ever conversant with the present. This is blues, roots, folk, and a unique Australian distillation of Americana, steeped in the swamp water and cane country of northern NSW (the landscape of his childhood). His songs distil life, love and the human condition; his music calls with urgency; his solution and vocation are to love more and sing without apology. A Karl S. Williams’ performance – either as a solo artist or with his band – is frequently referred to as a visceral ‘spiritual experience’, leaving an audience slightly altered in the best way possible.
With a career spanning ten plus years, Karl has performed at festivals and venues throughout the country including Bluesfest, the Woodford Folk Festival, Festival of Small Halls, Dark MOFO, Panama, Queenscliff Music Festival and the Tamworth Country Music Festival, among many others. In 2020, Karl released his second band album, ‘Lifeblood’ (Winner – Release of the Year – GCMAs 2021), just as the COVID pandemic took hold. ‘Lifeblood’ sits alongside his critically acclaimed debut, ‘Heartwood’ (2014), as Karl works on writing and recording his first solo anthology – a collection new songs, lost songs and unreleased material. Whilst emerging back into the world of touring and performance, Karl continues to present his remarkable song-writing and sublime solo performance with intimate concerts throughout the country.
