REV. KM WILLIAMS was raised near Avery, Texas deep in the country of Red River County, Texas. It was a chance meeting and guitar lesson at age seven with a Bluesman (the story goes that it was the legendary Elmore James) in Dekalb, Texas that introduced KM to the blues.
After Graduating from Clarksville High School in 1975,He enlisted in the US NAVY submarine service. In 1980,He was converted to Christianity and in his own words "Received Divine Inspiration and Abilities" to compose and play Blues and Spirituals on guitar and the harmonica. He received an Honorable discharge from the US Navy in 1981 and relocated to Cleveland, Ohio, where he married, started in a career in the commercial power industry and begin playing guitar for local Baptist church choirs and quartets.
In 1995,He became an ordained minister in the Church of God in Christ. Shortly after accepting this calling; he lost his job and his marriage fell apart. Unable to maintain support for his family; his first family left him. KM then begin taking on temporary work assignments to survive. In 1996, he started a subcontracting business during the day and started a Chicago/Delta Blues band at night called "KM Williams and the Blues Train", developing his signature Texas/Mississippi guitar/vocal style and honed his songwriting abilities. They released an album called "Rollin and Tumblin" and opened for major Blues and Gospel acts that passed thru Cleveland including Robert Lockwood Junior, Little Milton, The Holmes Brothers and The Five Blind Boys of Alabama. KM continued to preach in the streets of Cleveland and various Churches that would have him.
In the fall of 1998, KM again fell upon hard times when gigs got sparse and his subcontracting business was not making much money. Unable to make ends meet; he relocated,with the help of his mother,back to Texas in early 1999; first to Clarksville,then to Dallas.KM regained employment, and started playing solo Texas/Delta Blues coffeehouse gigs in Deep Ellum, Lower Greenville and Arlington. A chance meeting and on-air radio show performance on KNON radio 89.3FM with blues DJ Don Otterman convinced him to record a CD of original songs.
That First CD was entitled "The Reverend of Texas Country Blues"(2000)and received international acclaim and rave reviews from both Living Blues and Blues Revue Magazines for its authentic gutbucket Texas/Mississippi Country Blues/Spiritual style.Since then KM has performed nationally and internationally at various clubs and festivals, and released fifteen more Solo CD's and three DVD'S. THis CD "The Boogie Reverend" Revisits KM's Orginal Texas/Mississippi Boogie/Country Blues/Spiritual style that has become his signature sound!
