Biography

Jay Williams is jAswhO? (pron. Jase hoo), a multifaceted musician, accomplished producer, innovative performer, degree-certified engineer and, above all, a humble human being. But despite his calm aura, Williams ripples with energy on stage. Anyone whos seen his live house music sets, or heard his many superb singles knows that Williams brings it. When I play, I give one-hundred percent, he explains.

Jay Williams a veteran live musician whos toured the US, Japan and England with various bands, including as a keyboardist, guitar and bass player with improv experimental dance music ensemble Playground and Elektra records project Family Funk. His multi-instrument prowess has led to frequent collaborations with a range of producers and artists. Williams has several up-coming Temple Music Group releases on tap, while his previous discography reads like a whos-who (or is that whos Who?) of dope underground labels.

A Hartford, CT native, Williams came up with his distinctive moniker in 1989 while on a trip to Barbados. He was a graffiti writer, and every wall he bombed he signed with a different first-name abbreviation, such as JasWhat?, JasHow?, JasWhy?, before settling on his current performance and recording title. Hes used it ever since, and 89 was also the date when the natty dreadlocked artist ceased cutting his hair. Like his long dreads, Williamss music ambitions have grown steadily from a young age.
