Alex Williams became recognized as an one-to-watch outlaw country artist, drawing comparisons to Chris Stapleton and Sturgill Simpson for his signature, cavernous vocal and gritty, go-your-own-way charisma. Now, following his critically-acclaimed major label debut in 2017 (`Better Than Myself' / BMLG), he returns with his long-awaited sophomore record `Waging Peace,' out October 2022 via Lightning Rod Records.
Produced by GRAMMY-winner Ben Fowler and featuring artists like Mickey Raphael on harmonica and Danny Dugmore on pedal steel, `Waging Peace' is rooted in country tradition and a bold, against-the-grain swagger, accompanied by Williams' organic twang and retrofuzz. Throughout 12 songs, Williams shares an unseen side of his life and his personal battle between good and evil. Williams introduces the record with "No Reservations," out today.
