A PROPER INTRODUCTION

Three years ago, Justin Michael Williams sat next to his grandmother on her death bed in her final days of battling cancer as she asked him a question that changed his life forever.

"If you were in my shoes and knew you were going to die in two months, what would you do?"

Williams immediately responded with, "I would drop everything I'm doing and finally record an album." 

Bringing his dream to life, Williams was thrust into the spotlight when his debut album, METAMORPHOSIS premiered at #18 on the iTunes Pop Charts in 2016, along with features by Spotify, NewNowNext, and the Wall Street Journal. 

Although Williams is still an independent artist, several critics say Justin’s urban pop sound and thundering falsetto rival mainstream acts like Maxwell, The Weeknd, and Prince.

Reviews say his live show is taking pop-infused R&B to a new level that is as inspiring as it is entertaining.

He has grabbed the attention of major stages and international festivals, including The Hotel Cafe, White Party Palm Springs, and the Wanderlust Festival Tour.

Williams grew up poor, surrounded by violence, addiction, and domestic abuse, yet overcame all odds to graduate from a major university, start his own business, and now - finally live his childhood dream of being an international recording artist. 

"What inspires me most in life is watching people accomplish the impossible," says Williams, "If my music and words can inspire people to do the same, I've fulfilled my mission."
