Matt Williams is an independent artist from Stillwater, OK. Matt was born and raised in Ponca City, OK, then moved to Stillwater in 2018 to pursue music in a town that was known for it. After playing acoustic gigs in Oklahoma and surrounding states for around 3 years, he formed 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 & $42), before releasing his debut full-length project in July of 2021, titled "Wasteland". Matt and the band strive to put on an entertaining live show, pulling influence from red-dirt, rock, and metal. Putting an emphasis on genuine songwriting, Matt hopes his listeners connect with the lyrics on the same level that he does.
Matt has no plans of slowing down in 2022, with a handful of shows already on the calendar and new material being released throughout the year. Along with “Wasteland”, Matt has released 4 singles thus far in 2022 with more to come.
"I haven't been doing this radio thing forever, but I've been around the block a time or two. You don't sleep on talent, especially when guys like Matt Williams come across your radio dial." - Bryson Culwell, Red River Radio Show
"With the boom of straight up rock ‘n’ roll in the ever-evolving Texas/Oklahoma scene, you start to see who can pull it off and who can’t. Matt Williams can." - Sam Burgh, Raised Rowdy
"Williams refers to himself as a Red Dirt artist, but “Always Be Around” screams “late-90s Southern emo” to me, with its Hoobastank-worthy harmonies and tasty hooks." - Rachel Cholst, Adobe & Teardrops
