    Born in Miami, and raised in small town Eureka, Florida, Williams has roamed far and wide, with enough life experiences to fill ten lifetimes. New York City, 1972, Williams wrote songs with Richie Havens (Woodstock), and toured the UK with Richie through ’74. Atlanta, 1975, while working as a chef, Jack encountered a tour-jacket wearing entourage, proclaiming “I’m a songwriter, and I want to meet “Roger Daltrey.” That proclamation led him on a whirlwind tour through Chicago to Boston where he signed his first publishing deal with “Roger Daltrey & Pete Townshend’s”, William Tell Music. After two years learning basic songwriting from Pete Townshend, Williams was summoned to the UK by “Ken Hensley of Uriah Heep”, and was signed to Ken’s publishing company ‘Umble Music. Upon relocating to the UK, Uriah Heep recorded six of Williams’ compositions that went gold. 1982 brought the next era of Jack’s musical adventure. He moved to Sarasota, Florida, the hot-bed of the southern rock movement. While fronting his own band, “Streets of Ice”, Williams was having his songs recorded by Molly Hatchet (Keep On Ridin) and Blackfoot (Send Me An Angel). It was during this that “Dickey Betts” (Allman Brothers) encouraged Jack to make the move to live and work full time in Nashville. In 1987, when Jack hit the Music City, he was signed by publishing great Noel Fox to Silverline/Goldline Music. He promptly had songs recorded by “The Oak Ridge Boys” (Seasons, Everybody Wins) and Gregg Allman (Just Before The Bullets Fly), which was also featured in the movie Renegades and recorded by blues great “Son Seals”). In the mid 90s, Nashvillle’s country boom began to fade and Jack pursued his love of the culinary arts. Earlier in life Williams had acquired formal training in classical cooking, which he still maintains his “3 star Chef” status today. This pursuit led Jack aboard many vessels at sea, cooking aboard merchant marine ships, research vessels and aboard even earned a Medal of Bravery from President George W. Bush for performing on a ship hauling war supplies to Iraq during the Gulf War. In June, 2015, Jack Williams signed with Lynn Gann Music Enterprises’, Songs of LGME!/Garrisongs 1-4-5/ASCAP, for an exclusive publishing contract. This new team has “BACK ON A DIRT ROAD” on Montgomery Gentry’s new FOLKS LIKE US LP (Blaster Records), as a duet with rock band “Black Stone Cherry” as well as “HEAVEN’S SO FAR AWAY” on Kevin Costner & Modern West.
