The Etude Session Presents: Hayward Williams
On Friday, December 18, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. Paradigm Coffee & Music will fill with the soulful voice of Wisconsin singer/songwriter Hayward Williams. Hayward is performing as part of The Étude Sessions, an initiative to nurture live music as a fundraiser for The Étude Group schools in Sheboygan.

Veteran Americana singer-songwriter and Wisconsin native, Hayward Williams, is revered for his shy yet authoritative and always soulful voice. According to Americana UK, Williams offers  "A fine set of soulful, introspective songs with his deep baritone trickling like honey throughout. Lush with lashings of strummed acoustics sweetened with tasty pedal steel, violin and dobro; all that's missing is the crackling of a good wood fire."

After a personal struggle with anxiety the slow, doubt-stricken, but steady process of learning how to think, feel, write and perform again is the backdrop of his recent album, The Reef.  Williams enters soul territory in his new songs and arrangements, complete with soaring horn sections and call-and-response back-up vocals from the sibling duo of Matt and Kate Lorenz (Rusty Belle).

Proceeds from The Étude Sessions ensure transformative experiences for students in the arts and academics such as college readiness initiatives, international travel, and artist in residence programs, that would not otherwise be available to public school students. During the 2014-2015 season a portion of the funds helped send students on a service-learning trip to Nicaragua in June. Students envisioned their professional lives beyond high school through participation in creative writing festivals, dance workshops, and engineering in the community experiences. They also visited eight different colleges in Wisconsin, including Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, Milwaukee School of Engineering, UW-Milwaukee, and UW-Madison. The intention The Étude Sessions is to make these experiences accessible to all students in the Étude schools, 80% of whom are first generation college students and over 50% of whom qualify for free or reduced lunch.

The Étude Sessions is the brainchild of Troy Tousey, founder of Open Mind Studios of Sheboygan, Wis. Troy, an avid community supporter and passionate live music fan, hosted house concerts in his backyard and attended hundreds of live performances during his years at Northwestern University, and while living in Colorado and Sheboygan.  Troy was vice president of The Étude Group Governing Board, part of the Sheboygan Area School District, at the time of his death in June of 2012.  Troy dreamed of presenting music like PHOX to Sheboygan to benefit the community, the music, and The Étude Group schools.

Supporters of The Étude Sessions now have a unique opportunity to become sponsors. Sponsors will enjoy the benefits of marketing, music perks, and the joy of  sustaining the good music of The Étude Sessions and the good cause of The Étude Group schools.
