Originally from Edmonton, Simon Williams is a pianist and composer with a unique sound drawing from jazz, folk, classical, electronic and experimental styles. Being from a musical family, Williams has developed an artistic voice that draws heavily from the rich harmonic traditions of jazz but remains accessible and interesting to a broad audience by focusing heavily on melody and rhythm. Williams is an intra-national composer and performer, having played and had his music featured across the country in Edmonton, Calgary, Montreal, Toronto, and Victoria, notably at Massey Hall, Koerner Hall, the Aga Khan Museum, and Toronto’s Nuit Blanche. Williams is currently studying music at Humber College, and most recently released a five-track EP with the collaborative project Carmine titled Something is Awake.
