William Brooks: Entrancing and ruggedly individualistic, earthy and ethereal songs.


Somewhere between names like Springsteen, Harry Chapin and Tom Petty is the entrancing and ruggedly individualistic William Ben Brooks.

His clever and engaging lyrics are deeply entwined with his slightly folk flavored rock which always spin a fine cinematic narrative. His beautifully embroidered songs of love, loss and questionable redemption are earthy and etherial, strong and sensitive.

William Ben Brooks is a part of a New York resurgence of the sensitive singer-songwriter, the kind of performer who gives you a lyric you'll catch yourself singing softly on the train home.

William's guitar work moves softly along while his lyrics dance over the notes. His sultry vocals are strong enough to convey every emotion which thread through his music.

Kimberlye Gold of THE SAN FRANCISO HERALD writes "Music like this doesn't come around too often. There is a majestic quality to it, particularly his vocals, but his use of organic instruments, like Hammond B3 organ, mandolin and harmonica keep the overall feel grounded and unpretentious. Lyrically he reaches down deep, serious at times, pontificating about the world and his place in it, at times bitter and others hopeful about loss, love and the grand scheme of things, but he's still trying to have some fun. He's been around the block a time or two, and haven't most of us? Blink 182 you can get all over the place, music like this doesn't come around too often."

William Ben Brooks was born and raised in southern Oklahoma between the cool shade of the Arbuckle Mountains and the endless turns of the promiscuous Red River.

His music has been heard on "The Late Show" with David Letterman and CBS's primetime comedy "How I met your mother", the international release of Adam Carrolla's "The Hammer", Good Day New York and VH1.

His film music credits include "The Dinner Party", "Out of the Garden" and "Underground New York."

He has also appeared on several daytime dramas, including Another World, One Life to Live, Search for Tomorrow and numerous times on the Gordon Elliot Show.

William has been honored as a New Folk Finalist at America's most respected folk music festival, The Kerrville Folk Festival. He is also a recipient of the Meet the Composer Grant from New York State Council on the Arts.

Under the banner of collaborator, his works have been performed at The Songwriter's Hall of Fame, Songwriter's Guild of America Pro Shop and the prestigious New York Songwriter's Circle.
