The amazing Ian Williams is an experimental and progressive rock guitarist and singer-songwriter, noted for his one-handed guitar-tapping playing technique, which allows him to accompany himself on keyboard at live performances, using one hand for each instrument. He has played in the bands Don Caballero, Storm & Stress, and Battles. Born and raised in Pennsylvania and partly in Malawi in Africa, Williams grew up with a love for music and was the drummer and vocalist in a local band, Sludgehammer, as a teenager. He attended the University of Pittsburgh to study history and political science, and after graduating joined the Pittsburgh math rock pioneers Don Caballero as their second guitarist in 1992. He also played with the Chicago-based avant-garde group Storm & Stress from 1997. He left both bands in 2000 when he moved to New York City, where he formed Battles in 2002. Battles released their first album, EP C / B EP, in 2006, and their latest, Juice B Crypts, in 2019. Aside from music Williams has also made a number of cameo appearances in the movies, including 2000’s High Fidelity, a romcom based on the bestselling book by Nick Hornby. Williams doesn’t currently engage with his huge fanbase through social media. READ MORE
