Bio

Amanda Williams was born to be a songwriter. It’s in her blood. She comes from a long line of musicians and writers, most notably her songwriting father, Kim Williams (“Three Wooden Crosses,” “Ain’t Going Down ‘Til The Sun Comes Up”). Being able to sit at the feet of a master songwriter from an early age infused Williams with an innate sense of the craft of songwriting.  

She listened and learned from her dad and as her skill developed she began co-writing with him. They teamed up (along with several other writers) to pen the George Jones/Garth Brooks hit “Beer Run.” 

“All my life I’ve heard that if you’re a country writer, you can’t write rock and if you’re a rock writer you can’t write country,” she says. “But sometimes it just happens. I understand the need for musical genres, but sometimes we get so bogged down in classifying music that we can’t just let the music be itself.” 

Williams has her own genre-busting style that had only one primary purpose—to connect with her audience. 

“Music reaches out and touches people in ways that make them feel like they’re not alone,” she says. “We isolate ourselves. We put ourselves in little cubicles and cars and living rooms. We shut out everything. Music breaks through those boundaries.” 

And there is a timeless quality to her writing. Whether she’s rocking out or singing a melancholy pop ballad, Williams cuts through the surface layers with the precision of a surgeon and reveals the beating heart of a song. And it’s not just her words that cut through; she’s blessed with a voice that’s spine-tingling good. She slips from bluegrass twang to soft croon to a full-throated rock roar with ease. Like her songwriting, her singing adapts to the song. 

“I’m compelled to communicate,” she says. “I want to bring people together through my music. This is what I was put here to do.” 

Amanda recently performed at Andrew Young's 75th birthday party in Atlanta thanks to SESAC. Among the attendees were President Clinton, Maya Angelou & Dick Gregory.
