Biography

PETE WILLIAMS
Born in London from a Bahamian father and a Dominican mother. Pete Williams in the last 10 years has been moving from London,Corsica, Bahamas, New York, Miami and landed in Montpellier five years ago. He has had several influences from his birth like his music, mixing different styles.
“Its not only about black music but about universal culture” as he repeats. Listening to the way he presents different nuisances from Stevie Wonder, Gregory Isaac, to Tracy Chapman or Lenny Kravits , from Jazz to Soul going through gospel, the statement is undoubtedly authentic. After studying at the National School of Dance in Bahamas he became lead singer and dancer in shows produced by Richard Francesco from 1992. “Only your best is to give with good work and determination the result will be fulfilled”. Led by this strong conviction, he continues to write and dance until his arrival to Montpellier in 2001. From that period on his music flourised to be even closer to who he is. The French culture enriched his style of music becoming more precise. Finally it is now with meeting new musicians that his music and has become clearly a stand for the cultural mix. “My album is like an Illusion, it’s a brand without a name”. Money as a devouring daemon has for too long dominated the music industry, I think its high time to change that, Nobody should be left out. The first album of Pete Williams is an eclectic mix of soul, jazz, ragga, two step with a hint of gospel and liberational spoken word, arranged and mastered by Barok dj, a pioneer in the electronic music. Each song represents an emotional voyage through his personal life along with this reflection that this society of suffering is more and more evident for the children of this planetary generation.
Collaborations include: Freddy Jackson, Flavor Flavor, The Force MD`s, Persey Sledge, Chrisopher Cross, Issley Brothers,
The cd Illusion$ is on sale at FNAC Montpellier

Lyrics

HAPPYNESS

Written By: PETE WILLIAMS

Every day the sun don’t shine
but I’ll be all right
oh yes i would
because the sun shines in every one and I wish
that we could all open up the inside and close ourselves from the outside we are all on a start
from were we begin
the end of now
tomorrow never comes
so what we could do
is smile and give ourselves a rest

Oh i sing because I’m happy
I sing because I’m free

My faith is stronger now
and the journey seems not so long
And these obstacles that were in my way
give me hope to see what I believed in myself
so I’m happy so I’m free for who I am
he the storm knows when it’s time for a change
Grand-ma never told me this
I know now
feeling the river washed over me
my soul was freed again

Love is a power needs no control stand on your Own tower
and see the cross you are
the symbol he came and walked us through
life was a start
and life is an end to begin

RUNAWAY REMIX

Written By: PETE WILLIAMS


runaway

I wonna run away with you
I wonna do the things you do
ho ya ya ho

Yours and mine, we waste no time
In its motion love will find you and I together forever
Even after in the ocean deep

I wonna run away with you
I wonna do the things you do
ho ya ya ho

Where spirits lie and high
Then where eagles fly
we will have the best of times
smiles
When we got there
when we got there

Let's runnaway like yesterday
Not forgetting times are prayed
Knowing our minds would flow the same way
the same sun and the universe is ours
the flowers came and you gave it colours with smiles of confort
Devine was yours and mine
a river flowing with love so innocent like the eyes of a child taking his first step to the vibe
everything was fine everything was right
the love was devine.

NO LOVE IN THE CITY

Written By: PETE WILLIAMS

All around us crucify us liars put us in fire’s
burn’s liar’s murders thieves
Crook’s bad business men
bad president
bad rolls models in the music

A teacher can’t discipline a child like they used to
And children don’t play the games they once knew
oh no
and their smiles are gone
And families are broken
Mr President not perfect get it right we need transfiguration
we need to be reconcile
slaves in the cities non in the fields and the cotton the cotton is high

Ain't no love in the city

When one child is born
another one die’s for hunger
Oh ya where could we go
who could we ask
it’s to late
All around us back stabers thieves and murders
All around us back stabers put us in fire thieves and murder’s
where could we go
where could we go
where could we go
ain't no love in the city

Ain’t no love in the city
Ain’t no love
Ain’t no love in the city
Ain’t no love
Ain’t no love in the city
Ain’t no love
Ain’t no love in the city
Ain’t no love

We've got to find holiness find holiness
it’s to late in the city
In the city buldings are falling in the city
people are dieing on the streets
no where to live nothing to eat
No one to be a friend
oh get on your knees and pray
I say it’s too late to find holiness
it’s to late to find holiness
Where could we go
who could we ask
it’s to late
To find holiness to find holiness to find holiness

Written By: PETE WILLIAMS

All the girls if you feeling me

and jump on your feet
Yo
All the guys if you feeling me through your hands to the sky
and jump on your feet
Bro
All the girls if you feeling me
through your hands to the sky
and jump on your feet
Yo

I saw you standing there
you were in your best wear
I swear
I was hoping and wishing that I was with you
my knees are burning me
And my eyes are tired of these things i see
Ho lord ho lord
and they are the ones I talk to
and they are the ones that say that they love me
Ho they judes

You get your minds all tuft up
you get your minds all mix up mix up mix up yo
let the beat just unfold your bones I’m giving flow to your blood line
yo yo yo
so shake your boungy bounce your
Bubby baby
sometimes you get to go crazy ya ya ya ya

Coming from the West Indies
please at ease
I’m coming with blows to your nose
you folks know what time it is
I’m bringing the shine to your dull lives
so cool like the waters from the island breeze
looking like a cabbage patch yo
with the beat just sticking to your
skin like sand
And you itch,...

WANNA BE

Written By: PETE WILLIAMS

All my neggers wonna be god’s, yet they still living in the dark yes father

Yeah do I walk trough these valleys and the shadows of death
I fear no evil
because I know I just took my last breath Check
opening up your minds and your third eye and visualise the lies
that they try to install in the minds of the young generation X
That’s who we are self maintain in what goes on around us
trying to be the badest
Wiping out are own brothers and sisters being the sadest
like that move call silence of a lamb that’s who we are
so before you point your finger at an
other figure
look in the mirror and you will see distraction
That’s who we are

All my neggers wonna be god’s, yet they still living in the dark yes father

Its seven hundred islands in the sun so why you get to pull a tek nine on me son
you better run choose one
this island was suppose to be for fun in tourism
If that’s gone where could you run
to the USA
I don’t think so
cause every one is having up’s an downs
the same time while you planning to rob your brother man
so no wonder why club’s like the zoo get to charge a forty dollar entrance fee
and at the same time
every other hotel trying to go all exclusive
You will agree gree gree
so before you loose what you have appreciate it more
And stop complaining and you will see the results
although we are small
we still play a bigger part being number one in the tourism industry

All my neggers wonna be god’s, yet they still living in the dark yes father
