There’s a transformative power to Dana Williams’ voice, a rare ability to bend time and turn feeling bad into something impossibly lovely. Raised on singers like Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday, the Island Records / KIDinaKORNER artist brings a jazzy nonchalance to her delivery while drawing big emotion from the subtlest vocal movement. In recent years, she’s gained an ardent following by matching that graceful urgency with her disarmingly intimate songwriting—a dynamic that landed her 2017 single "Honey" on Spotify’s Fresh Finds playlist.
Growing up in L.A. and New York, Williams first began experimenting with songwriting in middle school, often in collaboration with her father: the late legendary rhythm guitarist David Williams. Williams made her debut with "The Lonely One"—a 2013 EP whose opening track "Keep Me Waiting" earned the distinction of being the only original vocal composition featured in Damien Chazelle’s Oscar-winning film "Whiplash." Her sophomore EP "Let's Fall" featured "Fooling Myself" from the 2018 Netlfix film "Dude" starring Lucy Hale and Awkwafina.
She also appeared as a featured artist on Rejjie Snow’s Kaytranada-produced "Egyptian Luvr" alongside Aminé —a January 2018 hip hop single that’s garnered over 20 million streams on Spotify to date. Williams soon caught the attention of multi-Grammy winning producer Alex Da Kid and set the the making of her major label debut in motion releasing "Do No Harm" and "Holiday" which has been widely praised by Vibe, Refinery29, Uproxx and more.
