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.
