Bio

…beneath this sweet exterior lurks a rock ‘n’ roller. ”

— Frank de Blasé, CITY Newspaper. 

Meg Williams performs frequently at respected Writer’s Nights and numerous venues with her band, Meg Williams Band, as a solo/duo act, and as a guitarist for other artists. She’s performed main-stage at the 2018 Venice Blues Festival (Venice, FL), RedGorilla Music Festival (Austin, TX), Blues Radio International during the BMA's (Memphis, TN), Knoxville’s WDVX Blue Plate Special, Tennessee Motorcycles & Music Revival Festival, & Loretta Lynn’s Ranch as an artist, and performed at Cheyenne Frontier Days & CMA Fest as a guitarist for other artists. Meg is set compete in the 2019 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN (representing the Kentucky Blues Society) and has been selected as the House Band Director for the Women in Blues Showcase (Memphis, TN). Meg’s newest blues-rock EP, ‘Maybe Someday,’ has been played on SiriusXM’s Bluesville and radio stations world-wide – ‘Maybe Someday’ reached #10 on the Top 50 Blues Rock Album charts and on the Roots Music Report, and #38 on the Top Blues Album charts. Often compared to Susan Tedeschi and Bonnie Raitt, Meg’s guitar playing has captured the attention of listeners throughout Nashville and increasingly the US.
