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 his brother's 4-track home studio.

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 2018, Mike released his follow-up album, Hollow Moon. The album contains 8 original songs including the popular single, Black Sheep.

In December 2022, Mike remastered Leaving Dystopia. You can listen to (and purchase) the remastered version of the album on Reverbnation.

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 experience Mike's music on Reverbnation, Soundcloud and on all 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!
