Waterford City, County Waterford
Tadhg Williams is a musician, songwriter and poet from the Viking city of Waterford, Ireland. Being influenced by the greats of the modern Irish singer/songwriting scene Glen Hansard and Damien Dempsey, Tadhg’s writings often centre around social and political issues, however his light hearted attitude and love for his hometown often comes through in many of his poems and songs, some of which often feature a Waterford motif.
He has been praised for his ability to write empathically and shows a strong emotional connection with himself through his songs and poetry. Having supported Glen Hansard in Vicar Street in August 2017 and David Keenan on the Waterford leg of his Strip Me Bare Irish Tour 2018, Tadhg’s work has not gone unnoticed.
Tadhg discovered a love for spoken word poetry after joining ModWords - a collective of Waterford writers who work together to enhance and progress the local writing scene. It was through his involvement with ModWords that he discovered spoken word as an art form and began to write more often.
He is currently living in Dublin and studying history at Trinity College and hopes to be in studio recording his debut material very soon.
“Tadhg Williams is the personification of kindness, he is giving in nature and this is reflected in his music and poetry. I’ve had the pleasure to see him develop as an empathic artist which is a wonderful sight. The future is his if he wants it. Lend him your ears!” - Stephen James Smith
“Tadhg Williams, a man with many artistic pots on the boil. He is a man on the path, walk on brother.” - David Keenan.
