Paul Williams (songwriter) Net Worth $14 Million

Paul Williams was born to Paul Hamilton Williams, Sr., who worked as an architectural engineer, and his wife, Bertha Mae, a homemaker. When Paul was 13 years old, his father died in a car crash, so he was raised by his aunt. He has two brothers – John S. Williams, a NASA rocket scientist, and Mentor Williams, a songwriter as well.

Paul`s professional career in the entertainment industry began during the 1960s, meeting up with fellow comedian and musician Biff Rose, writing together the song “Fill Your Heart”, which was featured on Rose`s debut album “The Thorn in Mrs. Roses Side” (1968). This was the start of building his net worth.

After that, Paul went on to write such hits as “ “You and Me Against the World”, “We’ve Only Just Begun”, “An Old Fashioned Love Song”, “The Family Of Man”, “If We Could Still Be Friends”, “A Little Bit of Love”, “Save Me a Dream”, “Waking Up Alone”, and numerous others during the 1970s. He has collaborated with many artists already mentioned among others.

Paul`s net worth has also benefited from his career as an actor, since he has appeared in over 80 film and TV titles. This career began in 1965 as Gunther Fry in the film “The Loved One”. Since then he has made appearances in films and TV series such as “Phantom Of The Parade” (1974), “The Cheap Detective” (1978), “The Night They Saved Christmas” (1983), “The Pirates Of Dark Water” (1992-1993), “The Doors” (1999), “The Rules Of Attraction” (2002), “The Ghastly Love Of Johnny X” (2012), and numerous others. His latest ventures in the entertainment industry include voice acting, as The Hierophant in the animated TV series “Adventure Time” (2015).

Thanks to his successful career in the entertainment industry, Paul has received numerous prestigious awards, including the Oscar for the Best Song for the song “Evergreen”, performed by Barbra Streisand. He is also a member of the Songwriter Hall Of Fame, and in 2009 was elected as the President and chairman of the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers(ASCAP).

During the 1980s, Paul was addicted to alcohol, so in the next decade he was very active in rehabilitation. Thus, Stephen Kessler has released the documentary film about his life “Paul Williams Still Alive”, and he became a Certified Drug Rehabilitation Counselor through UCLA. In addition, he was the co-writer of the book “Gratitude and Trust: Recovery is Not Just for Addicts”. These projects also added to his net worth.

Speaking about his personal life, Paul Williams has been married thrice. His first wife was Kate Clinton(1971), with whom he has two children,. He then married Hilda Keenan Wynn in 1993, and has been married to Mariana Williams since 2005.

1Always seen in crimson sunglasses
1[observation, 2016] When I started out, it was possible to earn a decent living as a songwriter. Now, it's a much riskier time. In today's highly competitive music marketplace, it's downright absurd that American songwriters - small business owners in the truest sense - are more heavily regulated by the federal government than to giant corporations that use and profit from the music we create.
2[advice to young songwriters] Be authentic. Tell us your story. Let us know who you are. When you dare to share something from the center of your chest - your most private thoughts about loneliness or love - you may be happily surprised by the number of people who identify with your emotions and find comfort in knowing they're not alone.
3The advent of digital music has brought with it some great changes in the way people consume music: people are able to discover new artists with ease and carry their music with theme wherever they go. Personally, I think that's a wonderful thing.
4[on his work with Daft Punk] Back when I was drinking, I would imagine things that weren't there and I get frightened. Then I got sober and two robots called and asked me to make an album.
5[His acceptance speech after winning his 1977 Oscar for "Evergreen"] I was going to thank all the little people, then I remembered I am the little people.
