Zay Williams is a singer, songwriter, record producer, and rapper. Zay established himself in 2021, taking strides ahead of other independent artists by being creatively involved in every aspect of songwriting, ensuring his vision is expressed in every track. Zay Williams expresses life’s dualistic nature in his music by providing party tracks you can blast through your speakers, and heartfelt ballads that put you in a romantic mood. Zay pushes the boundaries of commercial music by making a darker version of the classic R&B sound, mixed with Trap elements like heavy bass and even throwing in pop structure to his songs. Zay Williams also does mixing and mastering, songwriting, graphic design, and has worked with artists like Dev Gajan, Yung'cid, Benjicold, it.used.to, Duke Cooper, Hotly, Stafford Beats, K Suave(Trippie Redd/1400), and other acts. Zay has also been featured on Spotify's Editorial Playlist Fresh Finds Hip-Hop: Best of 2021.
Zay Williams was born and raised in a Spanish-speaking household in Chicago, where he played football and excelled in classes, but had a hard time keeping attendance at school, ultimately being expelled for suspicion of selling narcotics on the school property. Since school and sports were off the table after that moment, Zay decided to start making music and experimented with different sounds and instruments, and even psychedelics after being diagnosed with anxiety around 16, eventually discovering his true expression in making Trap and R&B.
Zay Williams releases a new single on the first Friday of every month. Zay is currently signed to NVRSTP Agency.
