Georgia College Student Featured Musician on WMAZ Weekend Mornin'

Georgia College Student Featured Musician on WMAZ Weekend Mornin'

Graham Williams, a musician, and currently a Georgia College student, performs on 13WMAZ's Weekend Mornin' this Saturday. You can catch him on the show from 7-9 a.m. Saturday.

WMAZ: Tell us a little about you. What are your earliest memories of music?
Graham: My name is Graham Williams and I am 20 years old and originally from Watkinsville, Ga. I feel like I came into to music on my own. I randomly decided in 6th grade that I wanted to learn how to play guitar and had my first lessons. It later resulted in me quitting because I wasn't interested in the songs that I was being taught. I continued to stick with it (on my terms) and have continued learning, playing and writing on my own. It has been really interesting to see how the music I have played and listened to has evolved to what it is now.

WMAZ:  What should we know about you as musician? What’s unique about your music?
Graham: I am not sure if I can answer that...sometimes I feel like everything has been written before but that songs that stand as "timeless" are the ones that are honest. Before I moved away to college I would play for hours on end in my room. I would play anything and everything, from covers to my own. One day my mom told me that she knew what kind of day I was having based on what I was singing. It surprised me because I always just thought I was just a kid playing in his room. I feel like my songs are simple and for whatever reason felt right at the time and managed to stick. I guess what makes me unique is just that. I am me. There are so many bands and artists who are trying to reinvent everything. That is completely respectable however I think it is easy for those people to lose a bit of themselves in the process. I suppose I will stick to what I know, with an open mind.

Baldwin County January Unemployment Rates

Baldwin County January Unemployment Rates

Baldwin County's unemployment rate for January was 13.1 percent, the Georgia Department of Labor news release says.

That's compared to metro Macon's 9.9 percent unemployment rate for January.

But that's still less than a year ago, at 10.5 percent.

Sam Hall with the Georgia Department of Labor says the increases should not be cause for concern because seasonal workers leaving temporary holiday jobs play a major factor in the variation.

He says the important thing is the rate is lower than it was last year.
