Welcome to the Music of Mike Williams!

Mike Williams Musician Raleigh NCMike Williams is a musician/songwriter based in Raleigh, NC. The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Klaatu, Collective Soul, and many other bands and artists are some of his inspirations. Since the late 1970s, he has produced original music. During the 1980s, Mike actively marketed his music in pursuit of a recording contract or publishing deal. In the 1990s, after becoming disenchanted with the formulaic approach record labels were insisting on, he and his brother, wrote and recorded original music at his brother's 4-track home studio.

In late 2011, Mike decided to write, record and produce his debut album Leaving Dystopia which was released in February 2013 and remastered in December 2022. The remastered album can be streamed and purchased on Reverbnation. Leaving Dystopia continues to be widely listened to across the world.

In 2018, Mike released his follow-up album, Hollow Moon which contains 8 original songs including the popular single, Black Sheep. Hollow Moon was remixed and remastered in November 2023.

In May 2023, Mike released his third album No More Gods, consisting of 10 original tracks. No More Gods can be purchased on Reverbnation.

You can listen to Mike's music on Reverbnation, Soundcloud, SoundClick, YouTube, and all major streaming sites. All of Mike's music can be purchased at BandCamp and Reverbnation.

Mike's unique style coupled with his fusion of influences shines through in his refreshing and relevant collection of songs which he hopes will help awaken your inner spirit. Enjoy!
