Nelson Williams is a humble musician steeped in the classical, jazz and American roots music traditions. Being raised in South Louisiana, Upright/Electric bassist Nelson’s musical taste and stylings has always resembled a gumbo pot of sorts; influenced by a wide array flavors and music cultures. Hemmed primarily in the traditions of classical, jazz and American roots music, Nelson has performed in a broad scope of musical contexts but finds himself centered around performing with the Folk/Americana trio that is Brother’s Bear and as a sideman for his longtime friend and songwriter James McCann. Outside of the realm of music, Nelson is a staunch Classicist with a focus on Latin and Greco-Roman literature/history. Nelson recently relocated to New Orleans, Louisiana where he teaches private lessons and freelances.
