Hello, my name is Summer "The Soulstress" Williams! I am a r&b soul vocalist, artist out of NY city. I specialize in all things soul, jazz, soul, alternative r&b and even reggae. I perform weekly at the Groove NYC, next to the legendary Blue Note NYC with my own band, and have also touched other major NYC stages such as BB Kings, SOB's and Brooklyn Bowl. My music has been featured on Singersroom, ThisIsRnB, Vibe Magazine online, ThisIs50 and more. Outside of my own musical performances, I sing background for reggae artist Jesse Royal, UK Artist Ilse, Toronto artist Safe, LA artist Marley Waters and more! I am a member of the professional musician network JammCard and am a full time musician, and vocalist. Though my voice uniquely sultry and skilled, I have been compared to Jazmine Sullivan, Chrisette Michelle, H.E.R, and Jill Scott, to name a few.
In the studio however, I am a completely different being. As a songwriter of all genres, including pop, house, reggae, trap and hip-hop, I pride myself on being able to harness different stylings of singing on a track. I can and have used auto-tune, and vocoder-like stylings on records that need it, for the vibe! I would love to be a part of your musical needs, be it just a strong female vocal or writing lyrics/hooks, or vocal arranging. Harmonies are always my favorite part to record! Available remote or in-studio.
