Over the span of his career Williams has recorded five albums, written for Michael Jackson and Dusty Springfield and performed at Wembley Arena, London Jazz Cafe, Montreux Jazz Festival, Bendigo Blues & Roots, Woodford Folk Festival and Castlemaine State Festival. Williams also co-directed The Boite Millenium Chorus’s ‘WINDRUSH’ in 2016 featuring self-penned songs about the story of his parents’ migration from the Caribbean to the UK and was also Australian National Busking Open Champion in 2017.
