Composing music and playing guitar stretching back for two decades, it was when Zach Williams completely gave his life to Christ that everything changed and he knew he’d found his calling. Now with immense clarity of purpose given only from God, Williams has also been blessed with a crisp and renewed vision of who he is as an artist and a songwriter.
“I have a lot to say about what I walked through to get to where I am,”he says, which he shares in his epiphanic journey throughout his new album, Rescue Story, slated to release October 4, 2019 (Sony Music/PLG).
The ten songs contained on the anticipated new project are a mirror of where the life of Williams was twenty years ago, to the moments and places he didn’t even realize that God was involved.
He shares, “I can see now He was putting these little things together and allowing me to live in these moments so I can write about it one day. Rescue Story is the appropriate title for it all.”
“Over the past few years, I’ve met all kinds of people just like me, people who are dealing with addictions, cancer, suicide,” Williams explains. “Everyone has a different yet such a remarkable story. These are the people I write for because they are me. I’m the average guy out there struggling just like everyone else, and the folks who are coming to our shows don’t get a chance to share their own stories on a bigger stage. I feel it’s a huge opportunity for me to write and share their songs.”
