L.A. based Dana Williams releases her first single off her upcoming project for KIDinaKORNER/Island Records. Williams’ label debut embeds its ethereal sonic palette with endlessly inventive and hard-hitting beats (an element that recalls her past collaborations with left-of-center hip-hop artists like Freddie Gibbs, Boogie, and Rejjie Snow). “Holiday” is an expression of self-love and realizing that is it better to be alone than in the company of a turbulent relationship,” Dana notes. Williams softly asserts a need for independence, her lyrics drifting between poetic and blunt against a dreamy backdrop of rumbling beats and rhapsodic string work.

There’s a transformative power to Dana Williams’ voice, a rare ability to bend time and turn feeling bad into something impossibly lovely. Raised on singers like Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday, the L.A.-based artist brings a jazzy nonchalance to her delivery while drawing big emotion from the subtlest vocal movement. In recent years she’s gained an ardent following by matching that graceful urgency with her disarmingly intimate songwriting—a dynamic that landed her 2017 single “Honey” on Spotify’s Fresh Finds playlist, with over 3 million streams amassed so far. On her forthcoming debut project—produced by Alex Da Kid, the multi-Grammy Award-winner known for his work with artists like Skylar Grey and Rihanna—Williams alchemizes her formerly guitar-driven sound into a hypnotically shapeshifting breed of R&B: symphonic yet raw, understated yet impactful, heavy-hearted yet transcendent.
