About Me


Bring the Karl S. Williams show to SXSW 2013!


Aspiring musician, writer, philosopher. Quiet soul with a longing to engage with the big world and its myriad experiences.


My philosophy is one of love and compassion. I believe if we respect and understand the fundamental things which unite us, then we will truly be united and filled with joy.


I enjoy writing poetry, playing music (guitar, banjo, keys) and combining both to create songs. I very much enjoy sharing these with people at gigs whenever the opportunity presents itself. I love the delta blues and other American folk music, but also psych rock and everything in between. Love good writing, particularly the Beats (Kerouac and Ginsberg mostly) but so many others as well: Lorca, Whitman, Eliot, Cohen. I also enjoy creating visual art; sketching and watercolours.
