RC & The Gritz

IMG_0601.jpg

RC Williams has traveled the world with an impressive list of musicians, from Erykah Badu to Snoop, from Roy Hargrove to Mos Def. For 13 years he has held down the DFW Jam Sessions in Dallas; a spot that has nurtured many artists and become an incubator for new styles and cross collaborations. It was at these jam sessions that Snarky Puppy bonded with the likes of Sput Searight, Bobby Sparks, and Shaun Martin - and that is just one example. RC Williams was born and raised in Dallas, trained at the renowned magnet school Booker T Washington High, and brought up in a broad community of dedicated and caring musicians.  A member of the the Grammy winning gospel group God’s Property, RC Williams carries the ethic of ‘each one teach one’ forward in a powerful way.

RC & The Gritz can often be seen backing Erykah Badu, so the groove is familiar to many. Their 2015 release, The Feel, was met with eager ears by press and fans alike. While some of his peers express their chops in a big way, RC expresses a certain feel, a vibe of comfort and direct accessibility. This is music to groove to, and it confers a sense of cool on all who can hear.

“…the album is an even-tempered mix of the soulful, the dreamy, and the exuberant. In many ways, it’s a record for all occasions, and the general smoothness of the production binds it all together nicely”. - Ashley Jacob / EverythingIsNoise
