Lonely People

by Chuck Williams

"Lonely People" is a compassionate song about the homeless that is considered stark and stunning. There is not a time of year where experiencing homelessness is acceptable, but winters cold and snow can turn it to sorrow overnight. Inspired by a poem written by Terry Finch.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Chuck Williams - Songwriter, Performer, Guitar, Harmonica

Chuck Williams has been appearing throughout New England and in recent years has gone coast to coast with his music. Raised in Toledo, Ohio, Chuck has lived most of his adult life in the Berkshire Mountains of Massachusetts, moving to the Buzzards Bay shoreline in 2002. He has been traveling to coffeehouses, performing arts centers and festivals sowing seeds of his songs along the way.

Chuck’s approach is typically relaxed, at times sentimental and always confident. He is not a folk artist with heavy political leanings in his songwriting such as Joan Baez, Phil Ochs or U. Utah Phillips. However, what Chuck has mastered is how to pull at Americana heartstrings and tell rootsy stories through his simple and effective novella type lyrics. Nothing is overproduced or played with flash. Chuck has a personable singing style and it's not done to impress but express.

His music has some of the same energies of songwriters such as David Crosby, John Prine, and definitely Neil Young, while not sounding like any of them. There is something here that a lot of people are going to latch on to, especially in these trying times. Chuck’s music does exactly what it is suppose to do.....it reaches emotions in the listener. It gives words to feelings we all share and provokes thought long after the music is over. His style is unique yet it feels familiar.

Rhode Islands Motif Music Awards has nominated Chuck as Singer/Songwriter of the Year ('07, '08, '09, ‘11), for Album Of the Year ('07, '08 and ‘10) and Best Folk Act (’07, ‘12). Chuck has had the pleasure of opening for national touring artists such as Cheryl Wheeler, Kelly Joe Phelps, Rod McDonald, Steve Forbert, Pegi Young & the Survivors, Jimmy LeFave, Beau Coup Blue, Claude Bourbon and Michael Troy.

Chuck was the President of the Rhode Island Songwriters Association (RISA) for nine years. He is also a member of Folk Alliance, NERFA, ASCAP and the ACMA.

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
