Album Notes

artist: Chuck Williams
album: “Stories I’ve Told”
label: self
website: chuckwilliamsmusic.com
Chuck is from Mattapoisett, MA
there is no explicit language on this CD
Raised in Ohio, Chuck Williams now lives on the Massachusetts Buzzards Bay shoreline. On “Stories I’ve Told,” he has recorded songs he wrote on his own and with the revered, late folk songwriter Michael Troy and highly regarded blues songwriter and guitarist Brooks Williams.
Williams’ writing has earned several awards for his finely tuned craft. He has received multiple nominations for Singer- songwriter of the Year, Album Of the Year, and Best Folk Act from the Rhode Islands Motif Music Awards.
His lyrics and melodies are a musical journey reflecting emotions of everyday life brought to you through the stories within his songs. It is easy to recognize his style as rooted in the American folk-rock tradition.
“Williams employs a voice that resembles Neil Young's with the edges rounded-off. There seems to be a proud and strong tradition of folk music speaking truth to power within his tunes. - Don DiMuccio, Motif Magazine

all songs by Chuck Williams (CW) except where noted...
1. Backyard Oak Tree (3:03) from the perspective of a “century’s old” tree: seen fields and farmers fighting for dimes
2. Pawn Shop (4:31) nostalgic, heartfelt; the pawn shop owner and a collection of stories behind the items in his shop
3. Grandad Always Told Me (4:02) virtuous; recalling the lessons learned down from a grandfather, and passing them on
4. Riders of the Rails (3:43) uptempo train beat, rousing singalong; telling of the annual Hobo gathering in Britt, Iowa
5. To the Other Side (3:10) (CW, Michael Troy, Steve Ribiero) fear for a suffering earth: can we keep this planet safe, clean
6. Country Queen (3:16) (CW, Ralph DeFlorio, Brooks Williams) the restaurant country singer with a rock ’n roll heart
7. Hard Road (3:37) (CW, Terry Finch) a truck driver’s song; the road and the toll it takes: fatigue is hard to hide
8. Seeds and Stems Again Blues (4:04) (George Frayne, Billy C. Farlow) a down and out lament; heartbreak, and bad luck
9. Aphrodite (4:37) native American influenced song to the goddess of love — a vision from long ago, symbol of love; relating the Sixties theme of peace and love through a vision of Aphrodite; think disillusioned and aging hippy rooted in the 60’s
10. Higher You Climb (3:00) (CW, Michael Troy, Steve Ribiero) upbeat shuffle; declaring: I’m down but I’m not out yet
11. Dear Mom (2:55) a lovely letter to a Mother who’s passed: we all wondered why you had to leave and how that isn’t fair
