Matt Williams is an independent artist from Stillwater. Matt was born and raised in Ponca City then moved to Stillwater in 2018 to pursue music in a town that was infamous for it. After playing acoustic gigs in Oklahoma and surrounding states for around 3 years, he found a band in early 2021 and hit the road.
He released his first single “The Devil” on Halloween 2020, followed by two more singles Mountain, featuring new artist Gracee Shriver of Owasso Oklahoma, and $42 before releasing his debut full-length album in July of 2021, titled “Wasteland”.
Matt and the band have put an emphasis on an entertaining live show, and their sound ranges from Cross Canadian Ragweed-ish red-dirt to Alice in Chains-like guitar riffs and driving drums. Putting an emphasis on genuine songwriting, Matt and his brother Mason, who plays lead guitar in the band, write all of the songs together.
Matt has no plans of slowing down in 2022, with a handful of shows already on the calendar and 5 new songs set to be released in the early half of 2022.
Catch Matt at an upcoming show including in Yukon on Friday, March 11th at Grady’s 66 Pub, Stillwater at the Great White Buffalo Tavern on Sunday, March 20th for St. Patty’s Day, and at the Pioneer Cove Marina in Kaw City this summer on Saturday, July 23rd. Check him out online at Matt Williams Music on Facebook or mattwilliamsok.com.
