Jamire Williams Gold Standard in Modern Drumming

Jamire Williams is an artist. An innovator. A tastemaker. Held as one of the leading creative voices of his generation, he has worked with a plethora of significant figures in art and music. From legends such as Herbie Hancock and Dr. Lonnie Smith to contemporaries like Robert Glasper and Christian Scott. From pop figure John Mayer to soul frontman Bilal. Luminaries like musician/visual artist/curator Jason Moran to the genre bending composer Chassol. From classic producer/songwriter Glen Ballard to the beat king Madlib. They can all attest to the divine gift Jamire Williams holds.
His project ERIMAJ was the first image of Williams stepping out and letting his voice truly be heard. A vision described by the New York Times as “music…properly new, part of something larger, and still unnamed”, the critically acclaimed album, Conflict Of A Man, was produced entirely by him and is heralded as an “instant classic” by underground music lovers. The lead single can be heard on season 1 of HBO’s break out series Insecure. 
 
The latest presentation ///// EFFECTUAL encompasses his full creative being. It is not just an album, it is a statement. A conversation piece. “Jamire Williams shows himself to be an inspired crafter of sound, capable of building entire worlds from just his drum hits.” – Pitchfork 
Though it can be viewed as a concept drum record, it is much more than that. It is an experience. Williams’ solo set takes you on a spiritual journey giving you a seamless showing of what abstract expressionism sounds like. And this all gives light to the fact that Williams is constantly evolving and pushing the culture.
