My name is Louis Williams, I am a Gospel and Soul drummer and have been for the past 35 years. I started drumming early in the early 70ís and was fortunate enough to gain my experience predominantly playing gospel music. After building my skill and confidence I was asked to play in several different genre bands - reggae, jazz, soul and even crossed over to Bhangra.
I have worked with an array of Gospel artistes and choirs - Birmingham Mass Choir, over 200 members, Belfast Community Gospel Choir, over 100 members; toured across Europe, America and the Caribbean with various artists, Iíve worked with Dawn Penn, Roy G Hemmings from the Drifters and Clem Curtis from the Foundations.
I previously taught for over 10 years at the Sam Sharpe Studio in Wolverhampton and I am currently tutoring at the RSA Academy in the West Midlands. I also hold a current CRB and work with young people at Gloucester Street Community Centre.
I currently play with three different bands on a regular basis and have a regular slot at The Jam House in Birmingham - Chorale Ministries, Soul Session Band and Solid Soul Band. I find playing the drums therapeutic and sharing my knowledge with young aspiring drummers very rewarding and it also gives me the ability to also learn from this new era of music, keeping my skills current.
