Chuck Williams has been appearing throughout New England and in recent years has gone coast to coast with his music. Raised in Toledo, Ohio, Chuck has lived most of his adult life in the Berkshire Mountains of Massachusetts, moving to the Buzzards Bay shoreline in 2002.  His writing has been gaining notice throughout song circles and he has earned several awards for his finely tuned craft. He can take you on a journey that makes you think, smile and at times want to cry. He has been traveling to coffeehouses, performing arts centers and festivals sowing seeds of his songs along the way.

Chuck's lyrics and melodies are a musical journey reflecting emotions of everyday life brought to you through the stories within his songs. If you feel his style is rooted in the American folk-rock tradition, you would be on the right path that leads to this musician’s memorable songs.
 

Rhode Islands Motif Music Awards has nominated Chuck as Singer/Songwriter of the Year ('07, '08, '09, ‘11), for Album Of the Year ('07, '08 and ‘10) and Best Folk Act (’07, ‘12).

Chuck has had the pleasure of opening for national touring artists such as Cheryl Wheeler, Kelly Joe Phelps, Rod McDonald, Steve Forbert, Pegi Young & the Survivors, Jimmy LeFave, Beau Coup Blue, Claude Bourbon and Michael Troy.


Chuck is the President of the Rhode Island Songwriters Association. He is also a member of Folk Alliance, NERFA and ASCAP

Williams employs a voice that resembles Neil Young's with the edges rounded-off. There seems to be a proud and strong tradition of folk music speaking truth to power within his tunes.  Don DiMuccio, Motif Magazine
