Biography

There are apparently two entries for William Carlos Williams. One is the poet, mentioned below as #2.

#1)
Atlanta’s William Carlos Williams is a group whose musical output defies easy categorization. Avant-gard only hints at the influences of the band - which include rock, free form jazz, and fusion. Like the modernist American poet from whom the band took its name, William Carlos Williams is prolific, original and creative. And, after two short releases on the Brave Scout label, William Carlos Williams presents their debut full-length release, White Women, on Atlanta’s new ShoeString Records.

Formed by musicians whose backgrounds range from jazz to death metal, William Carlos Williams meld their diverse styles into a whole sound which is greater than the sum of its parts. The band was founded in 1995 by saxophonist Rob Mallard (ex-60 cycle Hum and The Golden Sparkle band), bassist Andrew Burnes (ex-bassist for The Gold Sparkle Band and Barel), guitarists Rob Perham (ex-Bunnieslope) and Wes Daniel (ex-Steamboat), and drummer Stewart Voegtlin (who previously played in several death metal bands). William Carlos Williams made Mallard’s Studio 204 their regular practice space, and it is there, in the heart of Atlanta s Cabbagetown neighborhood, that the band found its musical direction.

The name of the band’s debut album, White Women, is a shout out to what Mallard calls, “a group of people who mean an inexplicable amount to us and our music.” Mallard also adds: “Ours is not an album meant to make you feel happy, just feel good - catharsis for us, catharsis for you. Music exists primarily through its powers as a healing force.
