Byron Williams Jr. and the Soulmakers” is Byron’s latest creation and he is also performing with his duo/trio at events, parties, anniversary, festivals and company events – Byron is considered to be a multi style artist. You will find that he’s able to go from soul to rock and roll, very comfortably. His music style is varied from Frank Sinatra to Barry White and everything in between. From the 50s, up to now. His mentors in music stretch over a musical spectrum as well. Like of ’s Luther Vandross, Will Downing, Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Lou Rawls and Peabo Bryson. Some say that he is a throwback to the days of the crooners of old, mixed with great anticipation for the future offerings. To put it simple, he feels blessed and is enjoying what he does.
