Biography

Hailing from Shawnee, Oklahoma, Steve Williams is fast becoming one of the top Native American guitarist and recording artist today. Under the guidance of his older brother, H.D. Williams, and the inspirational music of Johnny Curtis, he started learning to play at nine years old. With hard work, dedication, and eagerness to learn other styles, Steve added the influence of Blues Artists such as B.B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughn, and Buddy Guy. Then came the intense hard rock licks of Steve Vai, Kirk Hammett, and Joe Satriani.

The vast range of musical influences has inspired Steve to create a unique and recognizable sound. The love he has for music motivated him to pursue a career in the music industry. At the age of fourteen Steve played his first gig at a local hotel and has since played literally hundreds of various types of shows and venues as both a sideman and frontman. His onstage experience and persona shines through as he connects with the audience on a plane that has been called both, spiritual and emotional. As a studio musician, Steve's playing can also be heard on more than 24 independent and commercial releases throughout the United States and Canada.

"God truly has blessed me and my family through the wonderful gift of music" S.W.

Steve has over half his life invested into music, which is evident when you watch his fingers glide effortlessly across the guitar to create the "sound" that compels you to stop and listen.
