More About William
William Groome played in local rock bands in the 1980s and 1990s. The two best known were Ambient Noise, for the single I Was There at The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and minor characters such as the EP Everything Right Is What’s Wrong. He later studied classical guitar at 171 Cedar Arts Center. After a several-year hiatus from musical pursuits, he began playing classical guitar again nearly 20 years ago. A few years into his return to music, Groome began playing at art openings and art festivals, among others. He has slowly added jazz guitar to his repertoire.
