Bassist Ben Williams‘ compositions are some of the most broad-minded tunes being played at the moment. With his arrangements and compositions, he captures the spirit of the diverse contemporary music scene while adding his own ideas to the conversation. On his sophomore release, Coming of Age, Williams enlists the help of his band and some seriously killing special guests to create some incredible musical moments.

Audio Premiere: Ben Williams - Voice Of Freedom (For Mandela)

With “Voice Of Freedom (For Mandela),” Williams shows he has an ear not only for contemporary music, but also for the current cultural climate. Though Nelson Mandela passed on a little over a year ago, the ideas he came to represent are as relevant as ever. Fittingly, Williams features singer-songwriter Goapele, who has been recognized for her human rights work and whose South African father was exiled for political activism. Aside from the title and lyrics, the joyful music itself is a hopeful statement about the current and future social climate.
