Biography

Part of the key to Holly Williams’ success as a singer-songwriter is that it’s never been her mission to try and live up to the legacy cast by her famous and prolific father and grandfather - Hank Jr. and Sr., respectively - nor has she spent a lot of time trying to live it down. The respect that Holly has garnered as an artist over the course of many years spent building an ... Read more in Amazon's Holly Williams Store

Editorial Reviews

From the Artist

"I'm such a blatantly honest person," says Holly Williams, "and I love to listen to an album and think the artist is truly sharing their life with me. I like to feel like I'm really getting in and knowing that person."

"My whole thing with writing is I love to tell a story," Holly says. "When I listen to songs, I play the movie in my head. There are certain songs in my head I see the colors and the visuals. Tom Waits is a genius at doing this. I've always hoped some of my songs inspire vivid pictures."

Format:Audio CD
Williams' gold-plated lineage (her father is Hank Williams Jr., her grandfather was Hank Williams) is in many ways misleading rather than informative. Though she's the product of two generations of country music royalty (and a broken home), her songs are modern in style and her lyrics are mostly untouched by self-destructive rebelliousness. Unless, that is, you count her charting a mainstream musical course as rebelling against the family business. The Williams' troubles passed from Sr. to Jr. to III, but in changing gender (and mother, Hank III is a half-brother), the darkest demons seem to have lost their grip on the steering wheel.

That's the long-way around to saying that you shouldn't expect a female version of the rowdy Williams sound or style here, though you will get a helping of the family's breed of talent. Williams' 2004 major label debut, The Ones We Never Knew, was a moody singer-songwriter album that lived in the contemporary folk and adult pop world of Shawn Colvin, Mary Chapin Carpenter and Jewel. After the album stiffed (and its single "Sometimes" failed to crack the charts), Williams was dropped by her label. A car accident and several years further along, she's back with a new album for Mercury Nashville that has a stronger country flavor.

The opening "He's Making a Fool Out of You" is an original slow waltz that would be a good fit for Lee Ann Womack, and Williams' duet with Chris Janson, the sweetly themed "A Love I Think Will Last," is an upbeat, two-step shuffle. Williams' hasn't abandoned the sophisticated contemporary pop sounds of her debut, she's simply mixed things up a bit. There are songs of coping, faith, troubled relationships, emotional growth and unbridled love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lyrics Straight from the Heart July 28, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
In the increasingly homogenized universe of popular music, it takes a good dose of heartfelt lyrics that are sung with special conviction to show again the power from the increasingly lost art of storytelling. Holly Williams carves her niche as a singer/songwriter - she writes or co-writes eight of the 11 tracks - on this sophomore effort and her first album for Universal Music Group Nashville: Mercury Nashville Records.

And it's from the deepest depths of despair on "Without Jesus Here With Me" - chronicling a March 2006 car crash that nearly killed Williams and her sister - that delivers incredible textures on such a shattered canvas: My sister fought/My daddy cried/My mama begged him for our lives/And I don't know how I would breathe/Without Jesus here with me. But reflection on that tragic day brings incredible honesty to the present: I still don't talk to him much/But I don't know where I would be/Without Jesus here with me/No there ain't no tellin' where I'd be/Without Jesus here with me.

The daughter of Hank Williams, Jr. - and half-sister of alt-country singer Hank Williams III - also tackles being raised in a broken home on the single "Mama" (You could have been bitter/You could have hated him) through lyrics which meticulously bring out such private emotions. That same soul searching is also found on the other single "Keep the Change" (I'm sitting around singing sad, sad songs/And it ain't, ain't getting me nowhere).

"Let Her Go" bounds forward with particular vibrancy, while the studio turns into a small stage on a very late Saturday night in a bar half-filled with desperate souls as Williams gets down to basics - guitar/vocal - on "Three Days in Bed" and piano/vocal for Neil Young's "Birds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Here With Me July 28, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Holly Williams is a singer to watch out for. Her voice is amazing, and powerful. I really like the songs on Here With Me. I think she has her own unique style in the country genre. I think a lot of people are going to like this album. Holly is something different, and something we need. I hope to hear music from her in the years to come, for now I'll enjoy listening to Here With Me.
My favorite songs on Here With Me are:
1. Keep The Change
2. Let Her Go
3. Alone
4. Gone With The Morning Sun
5. Without Jesus Here With Me

4.0 out of 5 stars Williams Shows Depth with "Here with Me" June 18, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Prime Cuts: Without Jesus Here with Me, He's Making a Fool Out of You, A Love That Will Last

Though she's only 28 years-old, Williams writes as though she has been through the mill of life a few times over. Her seasoned maturity is most piquant in the way she nuances life's shadows of hurts, joys and disappointments. There's a sense of inherent melancholy that sententiously connects her with those who have had been similarly bruised by life. And with such an emotionally textured style, Williams is not guilty of nepotism. For those unacquainted, Williams is the scion of the legendary Williams family with Hank Williams Sr as her granddad, Hank Jr as her dad and Hank III as her half-brother. But with her sophomore CD "Here With Me," Williams has comfortably settled into her style of country-folk with a dose of contemporary country reminiscing of Mary Chapin Carpenter in her quieter moments and Miranda Lambert at her feistier best. Also this time around, Williams has made a slight concession towards country radio when she has expanded her portfolio by including songs written by others. Other than 8 songs coming from her own pen (some of whom are co-writes) she has enlisted the help of Nashville's hottest scribes including Sarah Baxton, Luke Laird, Hilary Lindsey, Chuck Jones and even a cover of Neil Young.

Williams gets personally with a few autobiographical entries: "Mama" gives us an insider's view on her upbringing. "Mama" is a touching tribute from Williams to her mother. But don't expect some Hallmark sugar-coated gibberish, here Williams tells it like it is--the horrendous experiences her mother had to go through in the light of their broken home.
