Feeling a bit camera shy


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.
