ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
It was the experience of a year-long stay in China that brought Welsh born singer-songwriter Nicola Williams into her own as an artist, inspiring her passion for singing and creativity in song writing, which further flourished on her return to the Western world and her move to Galway, where she is now based.

Whilst writing and performing her own music in a number of Galway venues, Williams recorded a three-song demo, which received a positive review from Jackie Hayden in Hot Press (see enclosed article). Alongside her music, she continued her academic development by completing a Masters Degree in Community Development at NUI, Galway, which included study in Holland and Thailand. Returning to the UK to work as a Consultant and Trainer in her chosen field, she found herself increasingly dissatisfied with the progression of her career in music and thus decided to return to Galway with a view to committing to it full time. Although she had loved her work in the UK, she knew her greatest potential was to be found in her musical career “It would have been a really good life, but it wasn’t my dream, so it wasn’t good enough…music is what I love most and do best so I’ve made it my life”.

Williams recorded her debut album “Beautiful Arrangement” independently in 2006. The album covers a dynamic mix of styles, its varied tracks drawing upon elements of acoustic modern-folk, pop, jazz and dance, with subtle synth sounds and programmed beats complimenting the instrumentation of some of the tracks. Williams’ voice is uniquely expressive and soulful, delivering lyrics that cover a spectrum of emotions and an array of experiences of human connection, body and spirit. Williams herself describes the rich and melodic sound of the album as “beautiful music”.

Her live performance is equally engaging, with a creatively animated visual effect brought through dance, her infectious energy and her total immersion in the world of her songs. Williams is an artist with the ability to captivate and inspire the listener and watcher just by being herself and doing what she loves most and does best.

James

A truly beautiful expression from the one heart of creation.
This CD 'IS' a beautiful arrangement, on many levels, but most important of all it is a reflection of the beautiful arrangement that is life itself.
With each unique track Nicola's voice produces lyrics from essence that magicly harmonizes a vareity of melodies to stirr the Soul. Whilst some add fuel(air) to the fire, others sooth(water) the burnng flames.
Finally, some modern music that not only sounds GREAT, but has meaning and depth.
I'm sure, the power and truth expressed through this CD will spark the launch of a new genre.
I take my hat off... to this beautiful arrangement.
