The Louisiana native's creativity was fostered in an artful and intellectual home. Williams's father, Miller Williams, is an award-winning contemporary poet who brought his daughter along with him through his different visiting professorships around the American South and Mexico.

Buick 6: It was bound to happen. And now it has. It shouldn't come as any surprise that the advancements of modern science have reached the music world and the ramifications are only the tip of the iceberg. What I am referring to is the world's first genetically engineered band. This will give new meaning to the term musical genome. A result of a highly secret project that goes back to the 60's, all of the members of Buick 6 were chosen at birth from a process which starts with in a highly intensive nationwide screening process of millions of newborns. The simplest way to describe it is to say that each baby's DNA was carefully studied; first for the musical gene, then for how their musical genetic makeup then interacted with others. In other words, looking for the perfect musical match. Consider the number of possible combinations, which are almost infinite; the odds are staggering that it would come down to these four individuals collectively now called Buick 6. Yes, it seems preposterous- almost Ray Bradbury like in its concoction. It stunning to think it could be true. .... And it isn't. .... About as likely is that I own the Brooklyn Bridge and just put it up on Ebay. My apologies if your leg feels pulled--all in good fun--which was how this record was made. Far from being hatched in a petri dish or under a microscope, this record was banged out in one week in an exhiliarating burst of raw, improvisational creativity at ChessVolt studios in the lovely San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles, California. And yet, while the above paragraph has not a shred of the truth, the point here is that after you listen to this record you almost think it could be- because the real chemistry between the four musicians is simply undeniable. They hope you enjoy listening to it as much as they enjoyed making it. .... Dr. Tom Overby
