Besides having a truly beautiful voice, young NYC songwriter Lynette Williams also possesses the ability to blend beautifully soul, pop and jazz influences. Her debut EP “Songs For Sarah” is a surprising first effort, very mature musically and filled with quality tracks.
Harlem-based artist Lynette Williams creates music that is complex and simple, dark and joyful, abstract and tangible — sometimes all of that in the space of a single verse. It is at once tragic and joyful, quiet and mighty — reserved and abandoned. Lynette sang backgrounds for Ms. Lauryn Hill and is also on Ms. Hill’s track “Consumerism”. She’s in the 2015 December issue of Essence and was a featured artist at The Apollo in February. Her own band plays around New York at local venues such as Rockwood, Bowery Electric, Lincoln Center, The Highline, The Blue Note, and Pianos. She currently has an EP out called “Songs for Sarah”.
