“Storyteller” and “Open Doors”, Courtney’s first two CD’s, made history in 2003 by songs from “Storyteller” appearing in a movie called “Secret Indictment” in November 2003, also by charting a number one song (Hustlers Theme) on DMX music charts giving Mr. Williams a chance to musical direct a cable TV show called Ebonee TV, where he also wrote the show theme music for, also, in 2003 and 2004, Courtney Williams performed for Boubou’s Festival.

"C-Will album Review on "The Inside Connection" magazine (March 2006 issue)"

Drummer, vocalist, composer, arranger and producer C-Will (a.k.a. Courtney Williams) has a truly impressive musical resume. This multi talented independent artist has toured the world and performed with some of the biggest names in the music industry (including L.L. Cool J., Marianne Faithfull, R. Kelly and Kenny Garrett to name just a few).

On his latest CD release “Frustrated”, C-Will successfully demonstrates his ability to reach both musicians and music lovers of all kinds. Over the course of the cd’s seventeen original compositions (plus the addition of Marianne Faithfull’s “Falling From Grace”), C-Will proves that not only is he a master of several different musical genres (R&B, rock, jazz, hip hop, blues, reggae and jazz fusion) but also a master storyteller with a positive lyrical message.

There are also many exciting moments for both drummers and people who love drums. Whether he’s laying down a serious groove (on tracks such as “A True Hustler”, “Bridges” or “Too Much Talk!!”) or cutting loose with percussive fire (on tracks such as “Show Me Money!!”, “Rip It Out” or “Leave Me Alone”), you’ll find that this CD will very easily get plenty of rotation in your CD player. This is an outstanding recording that would be a welcome addition to any music lover’s CD collection, and another reason to fully support independent music and musicians.

(To purchase this release, the “World On A DVD” release or any of C-Will’s prior releases and to see where C-Will will be performing live in your area, visit www.cwill1.com or www.mrcourtneywilliams.com).

Feeling a bit camera shy


My music talks to people about here and now and so do my lyrics... but especially and strictly, my lyrics are made to uplift peoples souls, because when I was doing my new album "Frustrated"... I was basically upset at how cold and humanless man seems to be at the present time... "It always comes down to money and I hate that". I'm influenced by Bootsy Collins and I had the chance to work with Bootsy Collins and Burny Worrell when I played drums for "Color Me Badd", Quincy Jones influences me along with Herbie Hancock, Omar Hakim, Buddy Rich, Kenny Garret, Jeff Tain Whatts, P. Ditty... for his movement, Jimmy Hendrix, Metalica, Def Lepord... for their over all perciverance, Kimberly Berrel, Mint Condition, Living Colour, Marianne Faithfull for her survival in the music business, Rolling Stones and Earth Wind and Fire.
What sets me apart from other groups and bands is the stage... I love to let my band fly and get it all out like the Nevel Brothers do on Stage... My band comes ready with loaded guns and we give to the audience a visual, mental, emotional experience that captures all and leaves them breathless. I dare you to come to any of my shows... and I will prove this...

My story is simple... Here is a touring drummer who has been on tour since he was 12 years old then you mix that with all kinds of diverse performing music artist that I played with from Rock to metal to Reggae, Latino, Classical and Jazz... then comes along the writing music ability in me... and how all of my experience touring made a solid performing artist who just loves to get into the minds of an audience... I never had it easy taking my drums around New York City not making a lot of money, but now things are different and I'm a lot more strict about music in General because you have to be in the business part... Check out the clip and info on me ...
