Vinyl Williams is the multi-sensory project of Los Angeles-based artist and musician Lionel Williams. Williams began making music under the alias in 2007 and has since gained a reputation for his unique blend of psychedelic pop & dream pop, as well as his maximalist 3D art & interactive worlds.
Williams’ music is characterized by its lush and immersive soundscapes, with layers of elusive instrumentation and vocals, creating dreamy and hypnotic atmospheres. Drawing inspiration from a wide variety of sources, he's leaned toward likeminded self-recording artists such as Robin Guthrie, Patrick Flagle of Women & Cindy Lee, A.R. Kane, Greg Saunier of Deerhoof, Curt Boettcher, Martin Newell of The Cleaners From Venus, and Todd Rundgren. He has also collaborated and shared the stage with artists of the same nature, like Chaz Bear of Toro y Moi, Ruban Nielson of Unknown Mortal Orchestra, and Morgan Delt.
In addition to his work as a musician, Williams is also a visual artist and has created artwork for his own album covers. as well as interactive music videos and point-and-click websites. He is known for his vibrant colors, futuristic architecture, and abundantly biodiverse landscapes, which all reflect his interest in harmony, hidden structures of space-time, and the divine.
Williams just released his 7th full length album “Aeterna” on August 4th 2023 on his own imprint Harmony Records, adding to the momentum of an increasingly prolific potpourri of record releases.
