Born and raised in Philadelphia, PA, Jasmin K. Williams is one of the most talented, naturally gifted, singer-song writer's alive in the twentieth and twenty first centuries. I heard and saw her perform for the first time in 1992 at Ron Dewey Wynn's famed MILL CREEK JAZZ & CULTURAL SOCIETY on Lancaster Avenue in Philly, while I was operating camera for Rey "Mickey" Jones video productions. We were all absolutely floored by her jaw-dropping vocals, riveting stage presence and dynamic, unabashed, star worthy performance. After a brief meeting, she and her management invited me to become her dedicated still and motion photography publicist & documentarian. I followed her storied career for 15 years. In 2003 she became THE NUMBER ONE JAZZ FEMALE VOCALIST in Japan, touring Tokyo and a total of 10 major cities there, twice over.

In spite of her unquestionable talent for writing, gifted singing & stage presence, encounters with a small record label in San Francisco, a couple of serious looks from Warner Records A&R, the release of a CD entitled WORD OF MOUTH ( cdbaby.com/cd/jasminmusic ) and her meteoric rise to the top in Japan, the mediocre managers between Pennsylvania, California, NYC and Asia all dropped the ball, failing to capitalize on Jasmin's long-suffering, fierce dedication, blood, sweat and tears. Jaded, stripped down to the bone emotionally, physically and spiritually, she refused to just sell out and sell her soul for success within the often cold, cruel, grueling, unrelenting world of the music business (emphasis on the business)... Today, she lives in Harlem (NYC) with her Calico cat Lulu, taking a much needed break, but don't count her out, by any means...
