Now, local residents can hear it for themselves when she performs with musician Guy Ghouse as part of the Monday Supper Club at The Old Bakery in Maylands on December 9.

The former GWN journalist-turned-performer has been singing since she was a young girl and has taken out several awards, including the indigenous category of the WAM Song of the Year and the Most Popular Indigenous Performer at the West Australian Music Industry Awards.

The two musicians, who share a deep friendship and commitment to music, will merge their love of food and music in a special intimate performance of contemporary songs in the beautiful local Nyungar language.

Influenced by many things including her family, Williams said she loved to listen to as much music as possible and hear other people’s stories, inspiring her through her own creative process.

‘I am constantly amazed and inspired by what people tell me,’ she said. ‘I love the creative process. I love the idea that you can tell an entire story in just a few words.

‘I love that regardless of who we are, we can understand love, loss, sadness and joy. There’s a connection which happens with your audience when you’re on stage and I love that.’

The Monday Supper Club supports independent musicians and wordsmiths.
