Nathan Williams

“NATHAN WILLIAMS”
Cajun Soul
Got the Gators and Mud Bugs Doing Tha Dang Thang

Nathan Williams has a Southern Louisiana style that span three decades, which is something he never thought would be his destiny at an early age. His parents along with seven brothers and one sister lived a humble life until one day his father was no longer there as he was killed in a work-related accident early in his life. It made things harder on his mother, but the family was there to help make it work out. His interest in music grew around 8 or 9 years old; he would watch outside of the old lady house in St. Martinville, Louisiana the guys would sit around playing the blues, gospel, and other tunes. He eventually moved to live with his older brother Sid when he was around 12 years old in Lafayette, LA., his brother was 13 years older.

He would work in his brother store while attending school and discovered at that time he had a real passion to make music, and while in school he would knock beats on the desk. He listened to artist such the Commodores, Al Green, ZZ Top, R&B and all soulful sounds while growing up, and It also ran in the bloodline with the love for music his uncle Harry Hypolite played guitar for Clifton Chenier, it is all family oriented.

 



To amazement the legendary Zydeco King himself Buckwheat moved into some apartments across from Sid’s store and with that Nathan soon met and became friends with him. It was then that Nathan was introduced to the accordion and southern soul at its best. Nathan brought his first accordion from Buckwheat and learned the art of the skill. He also had the opportunity to learn a few skills from Clayton “Sampy” who was related through his wife. Nathan went on to play in the band for Buckwheat and begin playing on Friday night at his brothers club El Sida’s Zydeco & Blues which opened over 30 years ago and still open. He done this for free to bring the folks in and it soon became so popular that soon after we were playing to a packed house of 300 to 400. He soon started playing more church social and hall.

Nathan Williams finally purchased another accordion and this one had piano keys which the style and sound was different from his first one that he purchased from Buckwheat years ago. He felt that this type would allow him to create his own style of music and it did. He used this accordion to record Steady Rock and Zydeco Live with Boozoo Chavis on Rounder Records.

Nathan said his music is like a good ol’ pot of “Gumbo” it’s ingredient involve a little a little to make it a sauce. He states he add a little Reggae, a little R&B, Blues and Zydeco. Adding a little of everything keep him open to perform any category.
