Tim Williams is a folk musician currently based in Brooklyn, NY. He has released two LPs, two EPs and several 7" singles on Dovecote Records.

With roots in the Midwest, Williams' music career began in Boston, MA with a self-released EP "Songs For the Commute". After one year in Boston, Williams moved to New York and immediately began writing and recording a second release while staying at the Hotel Chelsea. These sessions turned into his two subsequent albums, "8/18 Chelsea Sessions" and "Tales of Digression" which would soon after become the first two releases on the Dovecote Records label.

Williams supported these releases playing small clubs and venues in the US and UK. In 2004 he met London-based producer Dave Lynch during a showcase at the CMJ festival in New York. Lynch offered to record Williams' next record if he ever found himself in the UK again. In November, 2005 Williams moved in with friends in Eastbourne, England and began writing and recording with Lynch. The resulting album ("When Work Is Done") marked Williams first release with national exposure. He embarked on multiple tours making stops at South By Southwest, CMJ, and the Sundance Film Festival. His video for "Novel" won MTV's weekly video contest The Freshman.
