Emerging artist Dana Williams, known for her breakout single “Honey” in 2017, has continued her ascent in the music industry with her latest single “Not The One”. Dana’s rapid rise in popularity was further boosted by a stunning feature on H.E.R’s Instagram show “Girls With Guitars”, where her exceptional talent left a memorable impression.
Raised in a family deeply rooted in music, Dana’s father, David Williams, a renowned rhythm guitarist known for his work on iconic tracks like Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” and Madonna’s “Like A Prayer”, significantly influenced her musical journey.
From her middle school years, Dana began honing her craft, benefiting from the unique opportunity to collaborate and learn from her father’s experiences and projects. This early exposure not only served as a fun hobby but also allowed Dana to develop crucial songwriting skills.
In 2013, Dana marked a significant milestone in her career with the release of her first EP, “The Lonely One”. This release included the only original vocal composition featured in Damien Chazelle’s Oscar-winning film “Whiplash”, catapulting her into the spotlight.
Her latest single, “Not The One”, delves into themes of healing, emotional evolution, and self-discovery. The song features Dana’s signature swooning jazzy nonchalance and showcases her evolving vocal prowess. Dana’s music, deeply influenced by the ethereal soul-folk genre, reflects her admiration for artists like Carole King and Sam Cooke, blending jazz, soul, and folk into a mesmerizing R&B style.
