From Williams & Company
Country Music, in its current form, sounds nothing like the Country Music that
started the truly southern, American genre. What people call country now is radically different to what country should be. Williams & Company's mission is to show what country music can be and re-imagine the sounds from the old country greats.
Lead by Alex Williams, Williams & Co. brings an honest sound back to country music with their new single “Discount Country, Half Price Rock n’ Roll”. “The song is about my interpretation of where I believe the country and rock and roll genres are heading”, says Williams. “It celebrates other musicians like us that try to keep ‘tradition’ alive in our genres in the midst of a changing, modernized music business.”
The band recorded their debut, self-titled album, “Williams & Company,” in March of 2012 at Beech Creek Studios in Brentwood, TN and supported it with an independent tour throughout Indiana, Tennessee, Ohio, and North Carolina, in the Summer of 2012. You can purchase this album on iTunes and its also available streaming on Spotify.
The band has seen great success, including radio airplay in Houston, as well as a highly successful tour through Texas this summer. They also won the Belmont Univeristy Country Music Showcase in February. On top of their success, additional tour stops in places ranging from Indianapolis, Alex’s home town, Austin, Atlanta, Columbus, and Nashville, have prepared Williams & Company to change the climate of country music.
“Before I wrote this song, I had so much confusion and frustration with the current state of music and how the business is losing faith in traditional aspects of these genres. This song is my personal anthem to the ones keeping tradition alive.”
Alex, Daniel, Sam and Lucas are ready to bring back the sounds of country legends such as Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Bob Wills, Guy Clark and Jerry Jeff Walker. The new single and video for “Discount Country, Half Price Rock n’ Roll” are slated to release January 29th, 2014 and will be available through iTunes, Google Play, Amazon, and Spotify.
