Benjamin Williams is a musician, singer-songwriter and producer from Edmonton, Alberta whose unique and buoyant zest has quickly established him as one to watch in the local music scene. At the ripe old age of 16, he possesses an unmatched ability to captivate you with his outrageously charming personality and musical prowess, whether performing at concert halls, coffee shops, festivals, charity events or busking. He began his musical endeavours in classical guitar studies under the tutelage of Michel Forestier in 2004 and has been recognized with many accolades and scholarships, most notably in 2011, where he won the Alberta Music Festival Association Provincial Festival in Classical Guitar for Age 12 and Under, and 2013, where he again won the AMFA Provincial Festival, in both Classical Guitar and Music Composition for Age 16 and Under. As an alternative/folk-rock artist and singer-songwriter, he has promptly made a name for himself among fans and peers alike and is garnering the attention of established professionals in the music industry. Among his most notable accomplishments, he claimed 1st Place in Parkland’s Got Talent in 2014. Benjamin is currently working with fellow musician Stephen Lecky as they produce and swap support for their highly anticipated debut recordings, which are slated to be released in the upcoming year.
