About Nicholas

More than ever before, a wealth of people are writing songs and playing the acoustic guitar. So much so, that it can be perceived as a tired idea. But every once in awhile, there are artists that come into the fold who are living the unique music they create. Such is the case with Seattle-born fingerpicking stompbox rover, Nicholas Edward Williams.

"Williams’ nomadic folk is told through a contemplative lens. Topics range from time in nature, moral struggles, gained and lost love, land conservation, and political agendas of profits over people.”

- Paste Magazine

"Absolutely beautiful... a delight to the ears."

- BBC Radio Norfolk

"Haunting the corners of the folk, Americana and bluegrass genres with his singular blend of soul and hope."

- Live For Live Music

“His nomadic folk is sprinkled with societal commentary about the current state of American affairs and the more grounded nature of day to day relationships.”

- Folk Radio UK

“Over the course of the last decade, Williams has been a student, immersed in the varied styles available in the American Roots songbook. This Land introduces the man who has staked out claim in its territory…”

-The Alternate Root

"More than anything else, this is an album with a worthwhile message on which Williams has done Guthrie and Seeger proud."
