Born and raised in Oklahoma City, OK May 2, 1979, Soul Williams is no stranger to music. His passion for music was birthed at a very young age by his large family. Since then music in general and hip hop specifically have played an extremely prominent role in his life. Soul's musical influences range from Common to Sho Baraka, Talib Kweli to Swoope and The Foreign Exchange. His vast knowledge in hip hop and neo soul has helped him in defining the type of genre he would like to be a part of: Hip Hop Soul. All around good music.
With the upcoming debut of his first solo album Love, Soul; The Musical Letters Collective, Soul is working hard to get his message heard, and will be promoting his new album at venues across the city as well as online through various sites. With collaborations from popular artists like Sean C. Johnson and producer Tall Black Guy, this album is sure to be a hit. The concept of this album is purposely seeing the world through “Rose Colored Glasses” and spreading the message of Love and The Good News combined through Music. “The feel of this album is one that is sure to catch the ears of hip hop heads and neo soul listeners alike. I believe they will be able to vibe and relate to what I’m delivering on the tracks. These letters are my story, my experiences and I wanted to be as transparent as possible.” Soul has enough consciousness-stirring lyrics to make a listener sit up and think as they nod to his thick grooves. This record is rich and full of organic beats that balance his soulful vocal style.
Soul Williams has worked with many artists throughout Oklahoma and other states. He has traveled the country performing at various popular shows and venues. Soul first got his start in performing, with the group The Mobsters of Light in early 2005. After many successful years together and after much prayer, Soul decided it best to depart from the group and pursue his own unique style of music. Since then Soul has been on a mission to create a sound that is classic and timeless. “I want to become another voice that bridges the gap between the listeners of Mainstream Hip Hop and Christian Hip Hop. I want them to all meet together and appreciate the Art and the Spirit behind what WE do! I want to establish a solid fan base that follows what we do no matter what. I want Jesus to be known and Famous! I want Love! I don't give it to get it back so to speak, but it would be nice to receive it back! I want [LOL] (Live Out Love) Music to become a voice that "The People" look for and listen to and be blessed with every listen.”
"The method in which, Soul Williams fuses pure unconditional Love, Hip Hop and Soul Music is unequivocal. God is birthing an experience created to reach the hearts of the rejected, lost, hurt, confused, misunderstood and forgotten and he is doing that through the voice, the sound and the message of Soul Williams." - Rozie Turner
"I believe that, as an artist, Soul has a passion to authentically express himself as a human being and as a believer in Christ. ... I believe that there is a poetic fire that burns deep inside of him that he desires to be unleashed, and I believe that it will be unleashed with the release of his new project." - Apocalyptic
