Sim Williams
Sim Williams
British singer/songwriter Sim Williams was born in 1988 in the south coast town of Portsmouth. After picking up a guitar around the age of 11, Williams went on to playing in various punk rock bands, which led to many international tours such as the Vans Warped Tour in 2009, 2010, 2011 & 2013.

It was the independent release of his debut EP “Devil on Your Back” in February 2015 which saw the transition from punk rock guitarist to solo artist, transpire.

Recorded in his home town of Portsmouth, the EP was a true testament to the artistic freedom that Williams had been craving for years, combining his love of acoustic, punk, country, folk & blues music.

A new record, new sound and a burning desire to make the world listen, Williams returned to the road with a raw, nothing to lose attitude. After a year of touring and playing shows across the UK, he embarked on a month long solo tour across the USA.

Armed with only a guitar and a rental car, Williams set off from Los Angeles and headed for Texas, stopping in several other states along the way, playing various shows, from opening for established punk rock bands & country artists, to festivals, as well as a handful of headline shows before chasing the sun back to California.

After a year and a half of building a solid fan base, both locally and internationally, and with a whole new repertoire of songs in his arsenal, Williams returned to California just six months after finishing his solo US tour to start recording his first full length record.

It was here where he entered Straitjacket Studios in Orange County’s Fullerton, with the help of some of the finest musicians and friends that were willing to help make the new record one that would be remembered.
“Broken Bones” was released on December 8th

"... a uniquely talented and genuine soul, is a welcome relief from an industry heavy with the flat, unfeeling and prepackaged. He began playing guitar on an old Japanese Hummingbird, and literally singing for his supper while traveling New Zealand. His reaction to his own living experiences in his society, with his family, and within his relationships inspire the majority of his songwriting. Drawing from musical influences as diverse as Ryan Adams, Bob Dylan, Jeff Tweedy and My Morning Jacket, Corey’s sound reflects the depth in simplicity heard in traditional American folk and country music as well as the energy and sincerity of real rock’n'roll. He has been fortunate to be able to collaborate with artists from all over the country, and the diversity of his still in progress recordings, match the intensity of his writing and performance. In his five short years of playing live music, a native of Texas, and educated in Chicago, Corey quickly became a small part of the wonderful Dallas music scene he now calls home." Stephanie Moore
