Will was born in Alabama and came to California at an early age where he was exposed to the music world by my father as who was a gospel singer & writer. Will's family started a young family band called the “Williams Seven Ways”, which was a great introduction to group music, and a head start to his musical career. The band even put out a single recording called “Love One Another”. Will played guitar with the family band, it was really cool.
Later he joined the band “ALL In ALL” with neighborhood friends, this became a super hot local top 40 music performing band with horns and a nice club following. Will enjoyed that for years.
Will then joined the band "Five Point 0” playing the various corporate parties and wedding events throughout northern California, as well as private parties, casino’s, and nightclubs, this was a “anytime whatever you need for your event” type of band, Five Point 0.
Five Point 0 aka 5.0 opened various concert events for top artists like; Ray Charles, The Beach Boys, Natalie Cole, James Brown, Jefferson Starship, B.B King, Huey Lewis & the News, Tower of Power, Sticks, Howard Hewitt, The Whispers, and many others.
Will has always enjoyed creating and composing music for the various bay area artists as a producer.
But like so many life paths my career outside of music was built around helping people in need in the nonprofit world. Challenged myself to advance in the business world, working in county government helping people on a larger scale, very fulfilling work.
But! there is Always music in the day and life of Will Williams
