“Get Your Feet Off My Cadillac”



CO-founder and Co-lead singer of The O’Jays, Walter Williams, Sr., releases solo CD project “Get Your Feet Off My Cadillac.”



Cleveland, OH, November 12, 2012 –(PR.com)–
Co-founder and Co-lead singer of The O’Jays, Walter Williams, Sr. has
completed his much anticipated solo project “Get Your Feet Off My
Cadillac.

Walter Williams, Sr. has delivered iconic recorded
performances and chart topping Soul/R&B hits as a member of the
legendary R&B group “The O’Jays” for an unprecedented 54 years.
During the later years of The O’Jays distinguished career, the Rock
& Roll Hall of Famer had planned on releasing a solo project. Walter
considered different standards trying to find the perfect blend of
classics that would be the right fit for his gifted voice. It took a
number of years but the time has finally arrived and Walter Williams’
“Get Your Feet Off My Cadillac” is now complete.

“In 2009, I
completed my first solo CD, ‘Exposed’”, states Mr. Williams. “Well,
anxious to find out what people thought, I did a limited release on the
internet and made the CD available at certain events that I attended.
Everyone seemed to love it. I thought, this is it, I have created a
Classic! As proud as I am when I show one of my classic Cadillac’s, I
presented my masterpiece to executives in the Music Industry! The
syndicated Disc Jockeys told me that ‘The album was good, but it was not
something that they could play for their listeners.’ Well I listened to
all the opinions and advice from different experts and I have made some
significant changes. I think I’ve found what I consider to be a great
collection of classics and truly believed that I could do them justice
in the studio. Well, I think I have and I hope that the listeners think
so too!”

Walter Williams delivers soulful takes on such standards
as Bill Withers R&B classic “Ain’t No Sunshine”, “My Way”
popularized by Frank Sinatra (with backing vocals from Eddie Levert),
the jazz standard “Nature Boy” (originally recorded by Nat King Cole)
and many more. This set also includes the single “There’s No Doubt”
written by Mr. Williams.

A native of Canton, OH, Walter Williams,
Sr. began his musical career at McKinley High School in Canton where in
1958 he teamed up with his best friend Eddie Levert and began singing
gospel on a Canton Ohio radio station. Walter and Eddie were joined by
three high school buddies, William Powell, Bobby Massey and Bill Isles
and formed the group the “Triumphs”, which was renamed “The Mascots” and
then finally “The O’Jays”, in tribute to radio disc jockey Eddie O’Jay.
Although The O’Jays have changed members throughout the years, the
founders and lead singers Walter and Eddie have remained constant with
Walter providing the smooth lead vocals while Eddie provides the harsher
deeper toned lead.

In 2003, while appearing in the movie “The
Fighting Temptations”, Mr. Williams teamed up with Beyonce Knowles,
recording the duet, “He Still Loves Me”, as part of the movie’s
soundtrack. Among his many awards and recognitions, Walter Williams, Sr.
was inducted into The Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2004, the Rock and
Roll Hall of Fame in 2005 and most recently awarded The BET Lifetime
Achievement Award. Walter is currently touring with The O’Jays while
actively promoting his solo CD.
