Christopher Williams Bio

Gather-ChristopherWilliams-RGB.jpgHailing from Nashville, but nothing like your typical Nashville songwriter, Christopher Williams is a songwriter, storyteller, and worship leader - offering songs that are honest and confessional, yet never over bearing; and performances that engage audiences with an appealing mix of intense passion and humor. With “lush guitar work, and sweet soaring vocals,” (Boston Phoenix) punctuated by the percussive vulnerability of a single African djembe hand drum and that strong baritone voice, Williams continues to be a “hard-touring singer-songwriter and a master at spreading his personal energy out into a live audience.” (Madison Isthmus)

Touring nonstop nationally for the last twenty-one years at a pace of more than 110 shows a year, Williams has built a faithful following of listeners around the country and is a true independent artist, releasing eleven records on his own label. Williams has toured with the Grammy Award winning band Jars of Clay, opening for, as well as playing percussion with the band and has also played with songwriter luminaries Arlo Guthrie, Phil Keaggy, David Wilcox, Patty Larkin and Ellis Paul.

Christopher is a follower of Jesus, a husband and a father, who has a rich history with the mission of Young Life. He has served as camp musician during countless Young Life summer sessions, enjoys playing Young Life events and banquets, and is married to Suzanne, Young Life’s Capernaum Coordinator for the Southeast Division.
