Brad Williams

Freelance Producer/Studio Friend

Although his “post-psychedelic guitar heroism” (The New York Times) puts Brad Allen Williams in demand as a performer (Bilal, José James, Cory Henry, Kris Bowers, Max Jury, Laura Izibor, CeCe Winans, Kimberly Nichole, and many others), he’s also increasingly sought for his songwriting, production, and mixing work.

Using The Bunker as a home base, Brad collaborates with select clients when his touring schedule permits.
