**I AM NOT MS. WILLIAMS HERSELF**
“THE JOURNEY OF A SAN JOSE SHARK
Since being one of the most recognizable faces on MySpace, Ms. Williams is a force to be reckoned with. She has a voice that’s melodic, a rhyme that’s sick, and not to mention, an undeniable swag.
Ms. Williams already has a major fan base that follows her career on Twitter, Facebook, MySpace and throughout the Internet who are anxiously awaiting the release of her debut album. Born Jenae’ Williams, youngest and the only girl of 3, Bay Area Native, Ms. Williams became immersed in the culture of rock, pop, jazz, and hip- hop at a young age while being raised amongst brothers, Jason and Justin Williams, who stayed with a pen and pad, parents, Jacqueline and Roger, who were both in rock bands and self trained musicians. Ms. Williams grew up as a self proclaimed Tom boy and wanted nothing more than to hang out with the boys, her brother’s. Justin and Jason would not allow Jenae’ entry into their room, until she wrote, and performed a free-style rap at the door. This routine forced Jenae’ to better her lyrical and writing ability with each recital.
Over the course of the year’s to come, Jenae’ joined bands and choir’s, grooming her ability to read music and to play the Clarinet and Guitar for more than 8 years. Influenced by everyone from the late, great Tupac Shakur all the way to Fleetwood Mack, Ms. Williams is looking to cut her own path into the spotlight.
It was the tragic loss of her 19 year old brother, Justin Williams, that gave Ms. Williams the perseverance to take her talents and dreams to the next level. At the age of 17, Ms. Williams moved to Los Angeles with her mother and started to connect the dots to professionally to pursue a music career which would also prove to be a healing process and a remedy through those unbearable time’s of losing a brother.
Her mother Jacqueline Williams, and step-father Bobby Moore, provided a studio and pretty soon, Ms. Williams took on not only rapping, but singing as well, with the ability to create her own tracks, lay her own vocals and play both acoustic and electric guitar.
During this time, Ms. Williams, single handedly created a MySpace page which rapidly became bombarded with friend requests, with over 529,960+ friends, 13+ million views, and 7+ million music plays. Ms Williams keeps her fans busy with new mixtape songs and pictures.
All of this hard work and perseverance led to a major label recording contract with Virgin/Capitol Records in 2010, whom she has recently parted ways with in 2012 due to differences with her production company.
However, the recent part from Virgin has not stopped any label from flirting and offering the Bay Area Slugger new beginnings. Stay tuned and Be prepared for this Bay Area Shark – Ms. Williams will break into your very world soon!”
