In her debut album, “Unwind,” fingerstyle guitarist Yasmin Williams expands the sonic capabilities of the acoustic guitar and reimagines what’s possible on the instrument.

Album Notes
“Watching Yasmin Williams perform is mesmerizing. Her music is gorgeously mellow and rhythmic, but the most captivating part of her performance is the way she plays the guitar. Williams holds the guitar horizontally, so the fretboard faces upwards and she hits the strings to sound the notes, a style called “lap-tapping.” – studybreaks.com

“As Leo Tolstoy once expressed, “Music is the shorthand of emotion”. It expresses the inexpressible. Music makes us dance. It makes us think, laugh, scream or cry; and, when it comes to Yasmin Williams, music makes us feel.” – NYU Palladium

“Yasmin is a unique talent. Her melodies pack a poignant dose of resonance and levity – a testament of the quiet confidence that comes across in her performances.” – NYU Palladium

“Yasmin Williams, who strummed, drummed and plucked her acoustic guitar to create a plethora of sound, created the effect of multiple instruments playing at once.” – Washington Square News
