Since early 2000, Elvis Williams, better known in the entertainment world as Blac Elvis, has been pouring his creative genius into the music world. Being born in Clarksdale, Mississippi, music was a natural force in the young prodigy’s life. Multi-talented, Elvis learned to play the piano, drums, saxophone, and guitar. There was never a doubt he would make a big name for himself in the industry, rather it was just a matter of time.
In 2001, at the young age of just 19 years old, Elvis was presented with the opportunity of a lifetime. Shortly after purchasing his first MPC drum machine, he went to work with several artists in Memphis. Amongst his first clients, included the multi-platinum, award-winning group, with numerous chart-topping hits, The Bar-Kays.
Within a short period, Elvis became a sought after producer and proved he was a force to be reckoned with. After his move to Atlanta, his roster expanded quickly. He started producing endless hits; from Fergie’s #1 hit ‘Glamorous’, to Beyoncé’s #1 single ‘Ego’, featuring Kanye West. Its no wonder Blac Elvis was now a household name with an impressive discography. To date, the Grammy award-winning producer has worked with everyone, including T.I., Jamie Foxx, Ciara, Rihanna, Rick Ross, Jill Scott, and Tamar Braxton.
Though the demand of his production schedule keeps him extremely busy, Elvis has still found time to participate in philanthropy. Elvis created ‘The Elvis L. Williams Sr. Foundation’ in honor of his late father. The foundation dedicates itself to empowering communities and raising awareness for sickle cell disease. It’s his way of giving back and giving thanks.
Many producers often become segregated into one genre of music. However, Elvis has proven he has the platinum touch in several compositions, including Pop, R&B, Gospel, and Latin music. Having experienced mass success assisting various musicians with chart-topping hits, Elvis is now ready to build his own brand as a solidified artist. His new EDM project is currently in the works and you better believe it’s going to be a jam-packed showstopper!
