Harlem based singer songwriter Lynette Williams has a beautiful voice, often known to bring audience members to tears, and a songwriting style that is truly unlike anything else out there. She creates music that is complex and simple, dark and joyful, abstract and tangible, often all in the same verse. Her sound is a mixture of soul, pop, blues, rock, folk, jazz, with a little twang, or in fewer words, indie soul.
Williams recently graduated from Berklee College of Music in and just received her MBA graduating early from both schools. She is currently a back up singer for Lauryn Hill both live and on her recordings. She has toured as back up for Miri Ben-Ari over the past two summers as well.
Lynette Williams is a songwriter and an artist in her own right. Williams should be recognized for her own artistic prowess. She has a Sunday night residency at Rockwood Music Hall, which continues to grow in popularity. She performs at Lincoln Center, The Highline Ballroom and The Blue Note. Her presence and vocal ability are undeniable. Williams recorded a strong and praise worthy EP “Songs for Sarah” as her first exploration as a solo artist, but it is her debut release "The Paris Sessions" that will change things for her. "The Paris Sessions" highlights a brilliant voice soaring atop a collection of moving original songs.
