Biography

“They came here to see you guys.”

Perry Williams is getting accustomed to hearing that.

With a unique sound, a commanding stage presence, and a set list as dynamic as they come, Perry Williams and his right hand man Dale Adams should be accustomed to the compliments. It should come as no surprise that Perry Williams has developed such a great following.

Perry Williams and his band consist of some of the most talented musicians in the region. Williams said when putting together a band that he wanted to be the least talented one of the group. Although humble in his own right, his strategy has worked, as their fusion is nothing short of amazing.

The five member group has rocked in front of crowds as large as 5,000, jamming to popular covers as well as original songs. Perry Williams has been booked in consecutive years for the 4th of July festival in Winchester, KY, opening for “The Classics.”

Together, Perry Williams and Dale Adams (lead guitar) have become a much sought after combination, playing as an acoustic duo in smaller venues. The two continue to be booked monthly at “Hall’s on the River” and “The Waterfront” in Winchester, KY. They are also playing in the "Fourth Street Live" area of Louisville through the summer. This partnership has developed it’s own following, and is available for smaller settings. He and Dale Adams have nearly 40 dates booked this 2008.

Williams has had much success as a singer/songwriter. Perry wrote the music and lyrics for “She Dreams” which has been heard on radio stations in Atlanta, New York and local stations in Kentucky. This single alone has roughly 120,000 of the 402,000 plays on Perry’s myspace page. Perry’s repertoire includes more than 30 original songs. For more samples of his work, please refer to www.myspace.com/perrywilliams.

Whether rocking in front of thousands, or playing at an intimate acoustic venue, Perry Williams and his band are sure to connect with a crowd of any size. Perhaps Perry said it best in his interview with The Sun News, “If it doesn’t make you feel, it’s not music.”

Lyrics

"She Dreams"

Written By: Perry Williams

She Dreams

It’s 6 am and she rises to greet the day
She don’t like it but she does it anyway
She grabs her hat and gloves and buttons up her coat
She’s glad of what she has and at the same time she want more

Chorus:
And she dreams about how things will change
And she cries, because they stay the same
And she finds that her life and love live mostly on a shelf
And the only one she counts on is herself
And she dreams…

The morning goes right by without someone to call
She wonders if she left work would they miss her at all
It’s 12:02 and she meets her friend Joan
Even though she’s with someone she feels all alone

Repeat Chorus:

Bridge:
It takes more than love to make a happy home
But these days she stays alone
All she needs to do is let love find its way
And help her through another day

¼ till 10pm and she watches her T.V.
Someone needs to tell her that love can set you free
She grabs a pillow and folds it into place
And she’d give anything for someone to touch her face

Repeat Chorus:
