Like many music lovers, Spencer Williams began playing guitar as a teenager. He says music sustained him through college and a doctoral program, but he only recently began pursuing music as a career. His debut CD, RUN IN YOUR DREAMS (Independently Released) was produced by Grammy Award winner Lloyd Maines and has received airplay on local radio stations in Corpus Christi, College Station and Waco. His songs are based in folk and Texas country. The CD starts out strong with the eye-opening "Drink My Time" ("...it's my time to kill and I'll kill it my own way..."), delves into the mysteries of faith and love with "My Prayer" and "Tumbleweed Girl" ("...you'll be gone before long, so sing me your new songs and roll away, my tumbleweed girl...") and closes with a mournful farewell with "This World To You". Anyone who enjoys folk, Americana or Texas country music will find something to love on this album. As a live performer, Spencer is adept at connecting with his audience. Through jokes and stories throughout his performance, he keeps his audience entertained. When he plays and sings, he transports listeners into the stories behind the songs: they experience the longing and fear of a husband for his soldier-wife in "My Only Love", the grief of missing a beloved dog in "Golden Boy" and the desperation of an alcoholic in "The Well's Gone Dry".
