Dar Williams rose out of the vibrant mid-90’s Boston scene, inspired by alt-rockers, jazz musicians, slam poets, and folk artists like Patty Griffin, Melissa Ferrick, Throwing Muses, Vance Gilbert, and Jonatha Brooke.
Following the release of her first album, The Honesty Room, in 1994, she was invited by Joan Baez to tour in Europe and The United States. Williams’ incisive songwriting with songs like “When I Was a Boy,” “Empire” and “The Christians and the Pagans” have captured the hearts of both critics and fans alike.
Williams and longtime producer Stewart Lerman tracked most of her latest album, I’ll Meet You Here, in November of 2019. The finishing touch, the title tune, “Time, Be My Friend,” was cut in February 2020 in Woodstock with Larry Campbell (Bob Dylan, Levon Helm), who produced the track and played guitars, pedal steel, and twangy baritone guitar.
I’ll Meet You Here was released in October of 2021. More information at www.DarWilliams.com.
