ABOUT DANA WILLIAMS:
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 David Williams, a rhythm guitarist who performed on such iconic songs as Madonna’s “Like A Prayer,” Stevie Nicks’s “Stand Back,” and Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean.” “My dad also produced music, and a lot of times he’d bring home a track and tell me, ‘Write a verse here, a chorus here, another verse here,’” Williams says. “It was just a fun thing we did together, but it taught me how to write.”
Within a year of booking her first show, 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. Delivering her sophomore EP Let’s Fall in 2015, she then switched her focus to releasing singles, putting out a track a month for over a year. She also appeared as a featured artist alongside Aminé on Rejjie Snow’s “Egyptian Luvr”—a January 2018 single that’s garnered over 20 million streams on Spotify to date. Later that year, Williams caught the attention of Alex Da Kid, who signed her to KIDinaKORNER and soon set the making of her major label debut in motion.
