Matt Williams on lead guitar was born in Long Beach N.Y., and grew up in Vermont near the base of Killington. He moved back to New York when he was 17 and at the age of 20 moved to North Carolina. Matt is now 24 and has been playing guitar since the age of 15. He cut his teeth on classic rock bands like Led Zeppelin, Guns & Roses and Alice in Chains. He later found himself drawn to the blues. He studied everyone from T Bone Walker & Robert Johnson to Buddy Guy & SRV. Matt was self taught, and playes by ear. He decided to spend a few years studying classical music in the styles of Bach, Beethoven, Paganini and Andres Segovia to learn theory and structure behind music. For a while Matt wrote & played instrumental pieces and followed the works of great guitarists like Steve Morse, Satriani, and Steve Vai. It seems that his music has come full circle . (Or maybe we should say Floydz Circle). While his technique and aspirations fall in the classical relm of music, his heart identifies with the simpler tones of the blues and the gain driven sounds of rock & roll. He has been a great addition to the sound of the Floydz Circle Band.
