Norwich, Vermont’s Hans Williams is an emerging independent singer-songwriter who experiments with indie, folk, and alternative sounds.

First releasing music in third grade when he would hand out CDs after school, Williams fell in love with songwriting as a means of finding comfort and relief. He’s an advocate for mental health awareness whose song Body on My Shoulders has become a therapeutic anthem.

Williams is now a graduate of Tulane University – with a sold-out show at the venerable New Orleans club Tipitina’s under his belt. He’s taking his wistful, stirring alt-pop on the road for a first-ever summer tour and gearing up for the release of new music later this year.

This performance is part of LOH’s FREE Nexus Music and Arts Festival. Location: Colburn Park Stage (across from LOH/City Hall)
