J.D. Graham & Justin Clyde Williams Live Concert

JD Graham

Graham grew up in Yukon, Oklahoma where he spent the first 30 years of his life developing his skills in hostility and perfected duplicity. An anxiety disorder at the age of 11 introduced him to the wonderful world of drugs when he was prescribed valium, and by age 15 he was raiding every medicine cabinet he could find. By 18 he was a bona fide seller skilled in the art of harvesting multiple doctor prescriptions, and in the scientific breakdown of exactly how much drugs his body could take each day.

By young adulthood Graham was deep into his addiction as well as his angst, which he showcased through reckless living and slinging guitar in several death metal bands. In 2010 he morphed into a more southern rock sound with his band Sour Diesel Train Wreck and released an album in 2012 to some national success and shared stages with Reckless Kelly, Stoney Larue, Cody Canada and The Departed, Jason Boland, Turnpike Troubadours, Shooter Jennings and Molly Hatchet.

In true coming of age fashion, Graham met some new people and started going to shows and open mics. His introduction to bands/artists like Cross Canadian Ragweed, Brandon Jenkins and Jason Isbell started to calm the waters a bit by the sheer impact of the truth in their writing. Their willingness to lyrically “bare the soul” hit Graham deep, and that influence mixed with a lifetime of much needed confession cast its spell, and his inner songwriter was born.


Justin Clyde Williams

Armed with six strings or backed by a full band, Justin Clyde Williams takes listeners on an emotional journey through his own personal encounters, telling stories with his songs. Growing up surrounded by dobros and banjos in the foothills of western North Carolina, his tale is one many can relate to regardless of where they call home. Tough times, rebellion, love, heartbreak and a resilience hardened by military service, crowds are immediately drawn to his unique sound and penetrating lyrics that dig much deeper than three chords and the truth.

Injecting a fresh perspective and unwavering commitment to situations some shy away from, Justin Clyde Williams attacks these issues head on without hesitation. Connecting with audiences in a way most only dream about, his levels of persona are quickly navigated as the songs strike a feeling similar to an inspiration for being the, “Life of the Party”.

Raised from Jones to The Rolling Stones, his own musical journey involved consuming classical guitar and heavy metal but once he heard Charlie Robison, everything became - REAL.

Justin Clyde Williams always leaves people wanting more with an unwavering experience that is blunt, therapeutic, candid and above all - unforgettable.
