Anderson William was born in Washington DC and raised in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountain range in Virginia. His first song, a time-tested hit among his family, was written at 8 years old about his love for cashew nuts. After a seven year stint in NYC where he wrote other songs – not about cashew nuts, he moved to Los Angeles. Here, he found his voice and a real passion for storytelling through song whilst drinking whiskey, eventually forming the blues based Americana duo, High Noon Whiskey, with Diego Garcia. He is also a member of the Mercury Sound Club.
When not playing music, Anderson spends his time as a woodworker, photographer, professional beard grower, actor, writer, and director.
