Huw V Williams was born in rural North Wales. Huw’s musical journey started on electric bass aged 12 after hearing punk rock music on TV. Aged 15, he was inspired to start playing the double bass after listening to records by Charles Mingus, Miles Davis and John Zorn. Attending The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama between 2008 and 2012, Huw gained a 1st class degree in Jazz performance and won the Yamaha Jazz Scholars bursary 2012.
Huw has performed internationally with world-class musicians; such as Jim Black, Huw Warren, Michael Blake, Jason Rebello, Neil Yates, Mark Lockheart.
