Harlem-based singer-songwriter and guitarist Lynette Williams has been “known to bring audience members to tears” with her spellbinding vocals, unique folk, jazz and indie-soul sound. In an interview I found on Youtube, the young musician describes how her mother used to tell her how she could sing before she talked and that her love for music has been with her from a very young age.
Earlier this year Lynette Williams released a single called Light, the track that today introduced me to her delicate and enchanting sound. Her voice is gentle but her words are firm, echoing with a purity that matches the clarity of each heartfelt lyric. I love the amount of words she fits into one line with one drawn-out breath, listen and you will see what I mean. One voice, one guitar and a whole lot of soul, this track it beautiful in all its simplistic glory. Listen above and purchase your copy from here.
