There are at least two artists by this name:

(1) A country singer and songwriter from Texas.
(2) An alias of techno producer Thomas Wendel.

(1) Born May 27, 1939, in Floydada, Texas, Don Williams spent much of his childhood in Corpus Christi, Texas. His father was a mechanic whose job took him to other regions, his mother played guitar and he grew up listening to country music. He and Lofton Kline formed a semi-professional folk group called the Strangers Two, and then, with the addition of Susan Taylor, they became the Pozo-Seco Singers, the phrase being a geological term to denote a dry well. Handled by Bob Dylan’s manager Albert Grossman, they had major pop hits in the U.S. with “Time,” “I Can Make It With You” and “Look What You’ve Done.” Following Kline’s departure, they employed several replacements, resulting in a lack of musical direction. After Williams had failed to turn the trio towards country music, they disbanded in 1971.

He then worked for his father-in-law but also wrote for Susan Taylor’s solo album via Jack Clement’s music publishing company. Clement asked Williams to record albums of his company’s best songs, mainly with a view to attracting other performers. In 1973, Don Williams, Volume 1 was released on the fledgling JMI label and included such memorable songs as Bob McDill’s apologia for growing old, “Amanda,” and Williams’ own “The Shelter of Your Eye.

    Every time people are making fun of me... because I (as a 19 year old boy) listen to those old country songs and stuff... I don't care about them... I love old country... and ESPECIALLY Don Williams! Oh what a voice! Such a great musician and a romantic guy too! Thumbs up for the real Don Williams! I wish he would once come to the Netherlands... or to a country that's nearby, Belgium, Germany or France... I don't care... If it'll cost me 4000 dollar to see hem live... So it be! You're my hero Don! You always will be!

    My parents and I love Don Williams music. Been listening to it since a chIld and still to this day. One album I would love to own that I cannot find is "Yellow Moon". Just another great album I would love to add to my fathers collection.
