However, in an instant of listening you immediately notice one thing- this is an engaging, genuine and unabashedly upfront artist- and it isn't often that the music of a singer-songwriter California - Creede Williams - Something Borrowed (CD speak so loudly for itself. Williams, who hails from a family of gospel singers, never imagined himself as a musician.
He's spent his years earning a law degree, working as a "suit" in LA, and juggling Album) duties of an ordinary guy. However, as it so often plays out, some of the most beautiful things are borne out of the seemingly mundane. Williams finds himself, several years since his debut, a career musician and every bit the insightful wordsmith. The critically acclaimed debut, Something Borrowedwhich featured the talents of the artists behind acts such as John Mayer, Colbie Caillat, Rob Thomas Matchbox 20Pat Monahan TrainVertical Horizon, and Jackopierce, displayed an artist discovering an eye for detail and a knack for delivering colorful melodies.

Each track tells its own story, and, in turn, all twelve work together to narrative a larger, cohesive portrait of what it means to be stuck in the interim.
That position is also true of Williams, who learned something valuable between the release of his first album and the making of his second. No matter how many jokes he makes or how he balances art with a trial docket, Williams is a musician.
