ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Take advice, don't question the experts.
Don't think twice, you just might listen.
Run and hide, to the corners of your mind, alone...
like a Nobody Nowhere..."

The words to the song Nobody Nowhere appeared in 20 languages around the world and read by millions of readers of Donna's book of the same name, but nobody ever heard the song till now on this debut album (and individual tracks are also available from iTunes).

Nobody Nowhere is an epic musical journey of autistic singer songwriter, Donna Williams; someone who lived through some of the most challenging things life can throw; abuse, poverty, homelessness, disability and nevertheless sees the world through the eyes of an optimist, a lover of people, life and humanity. It's a diversity-friendly album about daring and about reaching out, connecting, building bridges, taking chances, when and while you can.

Donna Williams' voice, whilst a style and sound all its own has been compared with voices like Missy Higgins, Jewel, Corinne Bailey Rae, Nathalie Maines (of the Dixie Chicks), Tori Amos, Nanci Griffith, Juliana Hatfield, Helen Reddy and Karen Carpenter.

Two of the songs on the Nobody Nowhere CD , "Beyond The When" and "Sometimes" feature in the TBS hit international TV series, "Things You Taught Me" starring Rie Tomosaka and Takaya Kamikawa.

Like a long buried treasure, the music and songs on the Nobody Nowhere CD span over a decade of song writing. Though it took her years till she could finally dare to let others hear her sing, she has what is an almost startlingly pure and honest voice.

Nobody Nowhere is an album of awesome contrasts, from capturing alienation like in the track 'Enemy Lines' (which made the top 50 Jazz tracks on American Idol Underground) to the hauntingly beautiful and atmospheric track of, "Ocean Deep".

The Nobody Nowhere album is a quality production of flowing, yet diverse styles produced by award winning film and TV music composer/producer, Paul Farrer. This CD is musically, lyrically and vocally beautiful, powerful and moving, even teasing and humorous at times. It is a musical dance of the soul, unchained. It's multifaceted, quirky and surprising.

So much for the labels on the jam jar; deaf, disturbed, autistic; of which Donna certainly had her share. We are so much more than labels or categories, any of us, and the album, Nobody Nowhere shows us that in abundance.

I love it! The songs resonated with me.
I was just browsing Donna's website and happened upon her samples from her CD. I was taken by surprise that the music was so moving and the lyrics are beautiful and haunting. I don't usually make spontaneous purchases but made a happy exception this time.

Beautiful
I have Asperger Syndrome and am brain/meaning nearsighted, but at least now I KNOW. For me lyrics are very important and these certainly speak to me. My favorite songs are Ocean deep and Little bit of time. Beautiful!

I really enjoy "Sometimes"
i think i would enjoy living with you because I would like to film you doing songs and play them at the movies. I really enjoy your music and I might write a note to you soon. Bye.

Great music
The music of "Nobody Nowhere" helps me to set free who really lives within myself. At times it makes me fly, cry and be happy at the same time. Also, some of the words capture the things that are hidden for nonautistics, touching gently wonderful worlds of color and light. Thank you for making that wonderful CD!

I have listening to the CD everyday..in my room or in my car after I got it. English is not my first languages so I cant understand the lyrics well. But I enjoyed her melody and voice like a pure girl.It makes me feel so good or so sad or happy.I know the lyrics have many important her messages ,so I'd like to know it well but now I just want to enjoy it by my hear for a while.

The Music and words are wonderful, powerful, inciteful
The music, words, feelings this CD invokes has left all who have heard it here in my office calmer than when they came in. It has helped me appreciate all that my son, who is Autistic, has experienced in his young life and to help me look at things from possibly his point of view. Thank you so much for sharing this talent with us.

Wonderful CD
I loved this CD! It had a soft, mellow sound about it, and the lyrics really spoke from the heart. I certainly appreciated Donna's insight.

Heather


Donna gifts the listener. Her beautiful voice is a true gift to the ears. Her lyrics are a gift I give my heart.
Thank you Donna for making both possible

Donna

Enjoyable
The singing and music was most pleasing to listen to. The words are a helpful insight into the world of autism. I am enjoying this CD very much!
