The Beat: DJ Williams Cements Musical Family With Shots Fired
A year after a nightmare incarceration in the Middle East, Williams is back and better than ever.
From forming a new band in a new city to enduring human rights abuses in Middle East prisons to releasing a new album, the last two years have been a whirlwind of high musical peaks and soul-crushing lows for guitarist DJ Williams.
Nearly a year after enduring a month-and-a-half of incarceration in the United Arab Emirates, Williams is changed for the better and, along with a renewed life perspective, is bringing reinvigorated musical energy to his young band, DJ Williams’ Shots Fired.
