Welcome to the Music of Mike Williams!

Mike Williams Musician Raleigh NCMike Williams is a Raleigh, NC based singer/songwriter. His influences include the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Klaatu, Collective Soul, and many other bands and artists. He has been writing original music since the late 1970s. 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 their 4 track home studio in Maryland.

In 2011, Mike decided to write, record and produce his debut album Leaving Dystopia. Leaving Dystopia was released in February 2013 and continues to be widely listened to across the world.

In December 2022, almost a decade after its release, Mike remastered Leaving Dystopia. You can listen to (and purchase) the remastered version of the album on Reverbnation.

Five years after Leaving Dystopia, Mike released his follow-up album, Hollow Moon, on February 27, 2018. The album contains 8 original songs including the popular single, Black Sheep.

Since Hollow Moon, Mike has released the singles Breathe (Dec 2020), Rainy Day (Feb 2021), I Know (Mar 2021), Billy Pepper (June 2021), When You Gonna Get It (Nov 2021), Tell Me (Jan 2022), Johnny Lightone (May 2022), Pretty Lady (Aug 2022) and Don't Let Go (Jan 2023). A third album is planned for release in the Spring 2023.

You can listen to Mike's music on his Reverbnation and Soundcloud sites as well as on all the major streaming sites.

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!
