"Now Or Never"
JP Williams (Guitar / Vocalist / Composer)
Born in New York City and first started performing acoustic Blues & Folk music at college coffee houses and local nightclubs while in college in Wilkes-Barre, Pa. He then returned to NYC where he performed for several years at many famous city nightclubs with other aspiring singer/songwriters and musicians. He continued to write songs and perform after moving once again to Pennsylvania, first as a solo act and now with his own JP Williams Blues Band (Winner - Steamtown Music Awards Best Blues Act 2016). He performs regularly and records his original music with an extraordinary group of talented musicians at nightclubs and festivals. His musical style is derived from the classic blues performers he experienced in his youth such as Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, and John Lee Hooker, A love for Delta Blues music, is combined and mixed with many influences of Rock, and Soul music. His latest CD, “Everblue” reflects these influences. It has been featured on several “Best of 2018 / 2019” Blues lists and charts and is enjoying worldwide radio airplay and recognition. The single “Cigar Box Boogie” reached #1 on The Roots Music Report Top Blues Song Chart on May 25th, 2019. Add text
“Williams’ opens with a great vocal performance on the “Cigar Box Boogie” featuring Eddie “The Harp” Czarkowski and the song reminds me of “Canned Heat”.”
