Chief and the doomsday device
Greg Williams grew up in a musical family. Music has always been a part of his life. It’s a way of expressing himself.
He’s a staple of the San Marcos local music scene. Most people know him as Chief.
“It’s just always been around. I grew up around the age where music schools were starting programs,” Chief said. “Hip-hop was kind of coming on the scene. It was a different exploration of music and it seemed to be completely open. New ground.”
Chief says music has intrigued him his whole life, but when he was 15 he started performing professionally in Austin where he grew up. He mowed lawns for a year to save up for turntables. Then he spent another year or two locked in his room making music with his parents’ old records.
“I was trying to figure out that the people that I was listening to were doing,” Chief said.
