An Indianapolis native and lifelong musician, Cory Williams is an artist with a versatile and captivating sound. Influenced by the likes of Glen Hansard, David Gray, and Dave Matthews, and vocally reminiscent of a grittier Peter Gabriel, Williams’ music transcends many genres including indie-folk, alt-country, and rock while he remains a singer-songwriter at his core. His 2015 release, Lean Against the Moon, follows up his successful debut album, The Outcome.
Striving for authenticity, his songs reveal his pain, joy, failures and triumphs through lyrics that make the mind wander and reach his audience on a deeply personal level. Combining his uniquely gritty voice with moody, driving instrumentation, he creates a fresh rock sound with strong underlying folk hues.
