Counting the Ella Fitzgerald as her longtime inspiration, along with Billie Holiday, Dana mounts enchanting, effortless vocals on a daydreamy backdrop for an entirely timeless sound.
Predisposed for musical merit, Williams continues the story set in motion by her father David Williams, whose guitar-playing genius lent itself to the likes of Michael Jackson, Madonna and Whitney Houston.
Writing her own chapter in the legacy, Williams has cultivated her talent from an early age, acquiring many notable fans along the way. When she was in just 4th grade, she was selected along to perform 'Hard Knock Life' with Jay-Z for a TV special. Cut to today and she is still gaining nods from the hip-hop scene, most recently collaborating with Freddie Gibbs, Boogie and Rejjie Snow.
Further proof of her versatility and ever broadening appeal can be found, not only: in the oscar winning film 'Whiplash' by Damien Chazelle, where her song 'Keep Me Waiting' is heard in the soundtrack, but also starring in the Holiday Apple Ad. Williams made it to the top 4 on ABC's Rising Star. In addition, further proof can also be found on her YouTube channel, where Williams has garnered thousands of views offering soulful takes on songs by Shawn Mendes, Lana del Ray, Fetty Wap and Rihanna. Her channel also sets the stage for duets with fellow musicians AJ Michalka, Ben Taylor and Leighton Meester among others.
