Byron Bay soul singer Richie Williams is currently recording his latest solo album Soul Burning, which he has co-written with acclaimed producer Murray Burns at Byron Bay’s Studio 301. His original songs touch on universal themes of love and loss and living in a small town. The album is due for release in Easter 2012. One of Richie’s latest tracks, Ships on Fire, appears on the recent compilation Sound of Byron 2012, featuring some of Byron Bay’s best new artists.

You can catch Richie Williams on Saturday at Lennox Bowling Club.
