Williams Road is a roots band hailing from the rolling hills of Central New York. Their sound is a little bit “Bakersfield Country” and a mix of Americana. The band’s unique songwriting represents life in the rural setting they call home. Pushed by strong harmonies and acoustic guitars at its core, if you add violin, electric guitar, and the pedal steel, and you have Williams Road.
The group’s influences are the artists Lyle Lovett, Tom Waits, Steve Earl, and some of the good old boys of country long gone. They’ve had the honor of playing the Earlville Opera House, and have had their music played on the NPR Common Threads program a few times.
Band members include Scott Krueger (singer/songwriter, acoustic guitar), Mike Craven (singer/singwriter, acoustic guitar), Bradley Jewett (acoustic guitar, electric guitar, slide guitar, harmonica, back up harmonies, bass guitar), and Clare Pellerin (violin).
