who is keba?
Keba Williams’ music career began in Trinidad & Tobago where she earned national recognition from the early age of 11 for her achievements as a clarinetist. A child prodigy to some, she was awarded Best Wind Instrumentalist by the National Music Festival for two consecutive years and was once the youngest member of the National Symphony Orchestra. A multifaceted musician, Keba also sang and played the piano and steel‐drum growing up, and has been entertaining crowds since she was 8 years old. Today, she is a singer-songwriter by trade. Her original songs have been acclaimed by the USA Songwriting Competition, International Songwriting Competition and Unsigned Only Music Competition.
Her first studio album, Wildfire, was independently released in 2013. A modern blend of R&B, Soul and Funk, Keba Williams' musical talent is reminiscent of classic artists like Whitney Houston, Aretha Franklin and Chaka Khan. This pretty young thing with an old soul is the perfect example of old school meets new school.
