This Thursday, we are excited to welcome Hayward Williams as our guest for 414 Music Live.

Hayward Williams grew up with a guitar in his hands. Instead of continuing his schoolwork, he dropped out in 2001 and hit the ground running with his '64 Gibson to join the award-winning Milwaukee-based band Exit. Exit went on to be named Wisconsin Band of the Year in 2004 by the Wisconsin Area Music Industry. In 2002, Williams independently released Manoverboard, a solo project which allowed him the opportunity to play engagements throughout the region. This record served as the foundation for Uphill /Downhill, Williams’s 2005 debut. His latest album, Haymaker, was released in 2012 as the result of a successful Kickstarter project, and he claims it was his most ambitious project to date. Don’t miss seeing this accomplished Milwaukee musician hit the stage this Thursday, July 31st. Doors open at 5:00 for the show at 5:30, right here at 220 E. Pittsburgh Avenue. 414 Music Live is free and open to the public!
