Sherry Williams

America’s love affair with jazz has survived amidst a cacophony of musical extremes. The buttery voice of Sherry Williams is an oasis in any madness our world offers. When you listen to her you realize immediately that she is a consummate artist - the real thing. Williams is what they called in the old days, a storyteller - she paints pictures with words. Yet she bridges the gap between past and the present. Her masterful interpretation of the lyrics makes an over worn song meaningful, or brings an unknown song to life. Her passion for well-crafted music and her superb vocal ability clearly place her in a category to which few artists have arrived. “Sherry is the incomparable present-day combination of Lady Day, Sarah and Ella...” Though she emerges from the shadows of those great ladies who have gone on before her, her style is unmistakably her own.
