Patrice Williamson’s childhood home in Memphis was filled with song. Her late father, Webster Williamson, an avid amateur singer, introduced his children to both sacred music and the secular styles of greats like Louis Armstrong, Nat King Cole, and Lena Horne. With the encouragement of her mother, Lillie Williamson, Patrice followed in the footsteps of her sister, Denise, taking up the violin and making her performance debut at age four. From then on, she was hooked on music and performing.

She still carries that dream with her today, and Patrice’s sensitive ballad work and fluent scat style have garnered invitations to perform at The Regattabar in Cambridge, MA, the famed Blue Note Jazz club in New York City, and with many well-known jazz artists such as Danilo Perez, Joe Lovano, Sean Jones, and Terri Lyne Carrington. Back in her hometown of Memphis, she has performed at Lafayette’s Music Room and at Alfred’s on Beale Street, one of the most iconic streets in America.

Her independent recordings, My Shining Hour, Free to Dream and Comes Love, an album celebrating the collaboration between Fitzgerald and legendary guitarist Joe Pass, have received high praise from jazz critics around the country.

Jazz Times magazine states that “Patrice Williamson isn’t a singer, she’s a one-woman jazz sampler. — She is a woman of many voices, each distinctly intriguing, all distinctly her own.”
