about

Whetherman Jacksonville, Florida

Take one seasoned, bucolic folk artist and mix him with the easy-listening likes of Ray Lamontagne, crossed with all the poetic feels of Bob Dylan’s early recordings. Enter Whetherman, the music of 32 year-old independent troubadour Nicholas Williams, who has self-produced eight full-length albums of soulful folk music, with a highly anticipated new record 'This Land releasing in June of 2017.' ... more

Track Name: Right to Be Right
Waiting on a calling that is taken
From the haunting things forsaken
Hey we brought up from the ground
When it became the loss and the doubt

Sometimes I can see both sides
I reap and weep for my trials
But I'm beginning to watch and learn
Seeking less for more returns

Well I don't mind if I might
Fight through strife for the upside
I've got the right to be right
Once in awhile

Fiction contains me now
I'm in the middle of lashing out
It's not too bright this sight
Half the battle is to realize

Sometimes I can see both sides
I reap and weep for my trials
But I'm beginning to watch and learn
Seeking less for more returns
Track Name: Little Seeds
Yet as often as it may be said
Isn't defeat the best med for the head
Whether you're far along or coming on strong
It'll cure, and you'll endure what you'll endure

Too many wishes, not enough candles
Too many fishes, not enough ocean

I am saving this up
Untl I'm able to touch
The heart of the sky
Plant little seeds like fireflies
Blooming conversions to exemplify
Peace, love, and life

I will plan to ponder this farther
To assure it's not awkward when I sound out
Don't go a rye, please let me try harder
Track Name: In the Melody
You told me once
I couldn't have seen
Such a thing
Meant for me

And in the foreground
There's a Melody
Softening
To bring me back down

These circumstances
Draw second chances
Thirds and fourths
Till none are left

And in the foreground
There's a Melody
Softening
To bring me back down

Fallin' for your luck
Easy does it now
Only you take the fall
Only you pick yourself up

And in the foreground
There's a Melody
Softening
To bring me back down

So I make the path wide
Now that I've taught my eyes
To view for themselves
Not anything else

And in the foreground
There's a Melody
Softening
To bring me back down
Track Name: Like a Wick in the Sun
If we go our separate ways now
This surely will pass
You can grasp ahold or calm down
Before you think again to ask
Is this troublesome to me, to be deceived?
You just burn, burn, burn like a wick in the sun
Should you change for anyone

I don't speak for anyone
When I say it can be done
I'm sure we both know, it is what it is
Walking in shapes
Horns softly play
That I want you to do waht you want to do
You just burn, burn, burn like a wick in the sun
Should you change for anyone
Track Name: Addison Rose
With a walk by the flowers lining the porch
My, how I've loved the road traveled just to know
That the rare things take time before they can fly
Last thoughts, as colors arrive

She was much to these
My Addison Rose

Will I always cope, or denote a bird of flight again?
Should your feet meet the rocks weathered in the sand
Thrown from my hand
Last thoughts, keep a silhouette in mind

She was much to these
My Addison Rose

When I stretch my arms to see those morning sheets
I drown the thoughts in sleep
Or count the seams where she laid next to me
Last thoughts...

She was much to these
My Addison Rose
Track Name: Something to Come
I gazed upon an aeroplane
Decending over the golden gate
And I am amazed in this case
How quickly things pick up pace,
Yet they manage to slow down

I wrote it in a sonnet
That I'm ending those open wounds
Using white lies, cause they're harmless
And they cover my misgivings too

I need the wind to change speed
Bring all that peace in new beginnings
Something to come
Make it something to come

I relinquish the excess weight
Saving only my time and fate
And I will them frequently
Lend and send each word spoken
That it might be good to slow down
Track Name: Ancient Stones
The rocks in the riverbed are thin like leaves
Still preserve through history, like me
Only I decide where I reside
I've plenty of patience looking for places
Appearing to be just right, might catch one sometime

Dum dum lah dah da
Da dum dum ladda dum
Dum dah dah lah dah da dum

I was runnin about by the ancient stones
Chasing the tail of a black crow underneath the morning heat
And I decide where I reside
I've plenty of patience looking for places
Appearing to be just right, might catch one sometime

Dum dum lah dah da
Da dum dum ladda dum
Dum dah dah lah dah da dum

The winds are calm when the sun goes down
Works of art are painted on the town
And receive a poetic critique
When all is just right... might catch one sometime
Track Name: A Bit of Everything
In closing I defend I might give life a second wind
Come the time I'm in or out of control
It's the only thing I truly don't know

I've been regarding since the start
That I've been taking it to heart
That winners always win
And losers fall for sins
For me, it's a bit of everything

Crescent in the sky never seemed to float by
It's so hard to abide by the time we leave
No matter if it is to be the best it could be

I've been regarding since the start
That I've been taking it to heart
That winners always win
And losers fall for sins
For me, it's a bit of everything

I'm used to being the adversary
Chasing around other's mysteries
But heavier the head
Heavier the fold
Track Name: Broken Arrows
Broken arrows only fly so far
In the hearts given up or sold
Thus birds of a feather
Must flock together
Rely on whatever
Your neighbor tells you so

Darkness, let's start with this
Forgets the roots we've grown
Pretends their not our own
Harness, don't pardon this
It's in your bones
Your teardrops and your tone

You can't teach the simple pleasures
But you can read into whether
You're possessed by possessions
Or you impress with your impressions
Track Name: Summer Blooms
Summer isn't just the season
That I intend to implore my reason
I heighten the peaks that I often keep
So as I speak I arrive at the deep
Summer Blooms with every inch of reach
Holding an infancy without complacency
That I embrace once more
