The Sound - I call it Pop-Folk-Soul, which means I am the love child of Willie Nelson and Bill Withers, that was raised by Frank Sinatra. Hmmmm what a visual! A crooner with a folk-pop underbelly. Here are a couple of tunes so check me out.
While most football players were lugging around their gear, one was lugging around a guitar. Even as a running back for the Detroit Lions, William Robert’s innate gift for music couldn’t be hidden. And nobody complained.
Having written his first song at 13, William has now performed hundreds of shows in 15 countries. But his shows are not always to privileged Americans. While some shows have been to big names in New York, others have been to overlooked indigenous people in garbage dump villages. Whether the crowds be one or 100,000, his music has always been centered around helping the poor.
People forget speeches. And people forget words. But William believes people will sing songs. In light of that artistic responsibility, his velvety sound and amber voice croons messages of hope to the young and old. With strong Motown roots, William’s music is the equivalent of a child birthed by Willie Nelson and Bill Withers raised by Frank Sinatra. Modern contemporaries include Ray LaMontagne and Ben Harper.
William is a self-confessed cappuccino connoisseur and is known to burst out in spontaneous humming.
