American singer-songwriter Dar Williams lives at the intersection of pop and folk. She fuses many genres (blues, rock, jazz), resulting in a rather organic sound. She has been making music for over a decade.Read More...
Her studio album My Better Self finds Dar at an unequivocally brazen crossroads. Reflecting on American politics, the disillusionment and apathy of youth, and the female experience, Dar makes no apology for her outspoken beliefs.
Her 2008 album, entitled Promised Land. indieduck.com notes that "Williams turns over relationships in all their misunderstood, misconnected glory, and embraces religion, gender and other complications in her very wise songs. Promised Land draws in themes of nature, as well, and on the whole is a pretty piece of work that ends up feeling upbeat despite itself."
Her most recent album, 2012's In The Time Of The Gods, has a theme of Greek mythology running through it. The You Will Ride With Me Tonight Songfacts reports that Williams got the idea whilst driving on an isolated highway, during a trip from New York to Ontario.

- LyricsAmber called her uncle
Said, "We're up here for the holiday
Jane and I were having solstice
Now we need a place to stay"
And her Christ-loving uncle
- LyricsYeah, there was a time I didn't like the love, I liked the climbers
I was no sister then, I was running out of time and one liners
And I was afraid like you are when you're too young to know the time
And so I watched the way, you take your fear and hoard the horizon
You point you have a word for every woman you can lay your eyes on
- LyricsAnd you know the light is fading all too soon
You're just two umbrellas one late afternoon
You don't know the next thing you will say
This is your favorite kind of day
It has no walls, the beauty of the rain
- LyricsPerhaps I am a miscreation
No one knows the truth, there is no future here
And you're the DJ, speaks to my insomnia
And laughs at all I had to fear
Laughs at all I had to fear
- LyricsI threw your keys in the water, I looked back
They'd frozen halfway down in the ice
They froze up so quickly, the keys and their owners
Even after the anger, it all turned silent
And the everyday turned solitary, so we came to February
