“World Famous” Tony Williams Breaks Out

Posted January 13, 2011 by Anthony Mariani in Blotch

“The World Famous” Tony Williams grew up in Oklahoma but now calls Fort Worth home, and the R&B singer-songwriter has kept pretty busy since appearing on and co-writing two songs for Kayne West’s Grammy-winning 2004 album, The College Dropout. Last spring, Williams released the full-length album Finding Dakota Grey, and just a couple of weeks ago, he released King or the Fool, an organic R&B record that’s smooth and only occasional danceable. Williams’ most winning attribute, though, is his voice: alternately smooth and smoky and with a hint of edge. Williams also worked on West’s follow-up to College Dropout, Late Registration, and has worked and performed with Jay-Z, Nas, and Brandy. Look for more on “The World Famous” Tony Williams in the coming weeks in the pages of the Weekly.
