Bio

A Chicago native, T. L. Williams grew up completely submerged in music. His family was a cover band which rehearsed for decades at his house, leaving T. L. with access to several instruments and a plethora of musical culture to soak up. His ability to seamlessly weave R&B, Hip Hop, Soul, and Jazz into mainstream pop crossover hits have landed him in the North American spotlight, gathering acclaim from The Chicago Tribune, Sun-Times, NBC Chicago and more. T. L. is also enjoying newfound fame as a sought after producer, crafting hits for Syleena Johnson, Twista Keyshia Cole and more. Williams hit the ground running in 2015 with The T. L. Williams Experience. The album was a collection of R&B and Jazz hybrids and included the classic hit Gettin Mo Money Than You, which continues to be a red hot staple in the urban dance community. The debut helped T. L. bring home multiple awards including a Chicago Music Award for songwriter of the year. Two more albums, The New Normal (2016) and Love In The 3rd Wave (2018) followed. The second album touched on broader hot-button topics, included politics (New Politician), and Self-Love (Melanin). The 3rd album sent T. L. on his 2nd US tour, with stops in Houston, St. Louis, Atlanta and Los Angeles. The CEO of Quiet Kingdom Recordings, who regularly makes cameo appearances on the hit TV Show Empire, is also founder of Symphony Of Change Inc. a NFP arts organization dedicated to restoring music programs in schools. His upcoming LP entitled Kingdom, will see T. L. dive further into what makes his sound unique. Hits like Slow Jam Tape, Gated Community, and Play With My Heart broaden the horizon of Williams’ sound and style.
