CHRIS WILLIAMS is definitely making his presence known in Australian Country Music. With 2 hit singles, SHINING ON YOU and SPEED OF LIGHT charting extremely well on the Country Tracks Top 40 Chart, being nominated as a finalist for a Southern Star Award (Australian Independent Rising Star), nominated for a Tasmanian Independent Country Music Award (Country Rising Star) and also nominated for an ICMA Award (Most Popular Indie Country Male Artist), 2017 has been a rollercoaster debut year for Chris.
Born in Melbourne in 1979, CHRIS WILLIAMS learned to play the guitar at age 12 and he grew up with an avid appreciation and a real passion for music. Chris has played all across Melbourne with his acoustic duo, NEVER SAY NEVER, and it was through a few different recording projects, over the years, that he identified the components of good song-writing. An appreciation of artists like Keith Urban, Tom Petty and Fleetwood Mac influenced his song-writing style and sparked his desire to create catchy, guitar-driven songs that connect with people and last the test of time. Chris’ brand new single, LIVE IN THE MOMENT, is driven by a catchy guitar riff and has a carefree summery feel. The song was written about our everyday lives and the constant demands of living in a fast-paced world and learning to take time to stop and LIVE IN THE MOMENT, to enjoy life and focus on the here and now.
