Rising guitarist and composer Yasmin Williams recently released her Nonesuch Records debut single, “Dawning,” featuring Aoife O’Donovan. The song is set for Williams’ forthcoming debut album on Nonesuch set for an early 2024 release.

Yasmin Williams’ “Dawning” sees O’Donovan contributing vocals, Kafari on rhythm bones and Nic Gareiss adding percussive dancing. Yasmin further detailed “Dawning”:

“‘Dawning’ has multiple meanings for me: the dawning of my professional music career and a new love in my personal life, the dawning sky that appeared when I first started writing this song, and me smiling to myself with dawning recognition that I get to create music that I love for a living and share it with the world. This song represents a major shift in how I approach my music and expands the possibilities of what my songs can be.

“Composing ‘Dawning’ was a revelation for me in how significantly my life has changed in the last few years, both professionally and personally, and signing with Nonesuch Records exemplifies these changes in the best way possible. I’m super honored to be working with such an outstanding, well-respected label and to join their exceptional artist roster. I’m equally grateful to Aoife O’Donovan, Kafari, and Nic Gareiss for contributing their talents to this song. Working with a label and artists of this caliber is extremely exciting and I can’t wait to share more music, and a new record, soon.”
