Bio

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

— Frank de Blasé, CITY Newspaper. 

Meg Williams, originally from Western NY, 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 at 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 to perform main-stage at the 2018 Venice Blues Festival (Venice, FL) & compete in the 2019 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN (representing the Kentucky Blues Society). 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.
