"Jessica Williams is one of the top pianists of today, a powerful virtuoso. She is a giant, consistently brilliant." - Scott Yanow, The All Music Guide
It's been almost 20 years since I started this web store. I was on-line before Google. I knew nothing of computers. My husband bought me a computer, a Mac. Now I write pretty good HTML5. I also play pretty good piano. I love life in all its colors, shapes, and forms, I think making love is way superior to making war, and I still believe in myself. I try to use my music to improve lives, to make people happy, which in turn makes me happy. My interests include the playing of grand pianos, being close to nature, reading predictive science-fiction, getting afternoon phone calls from friends, and aspiring every day to be a better woman, wife, and friend. I love dogs, puppies, kittens, kisses, hugs, and adventure. At heart, I'm an explorer. Music is always at the top of my list of interests, along with my friends. I love Beethoven and I adore Mozart. The piano playing of Valentina Lisitsa amazes and inspires me. I listen to The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Debussy, Liszt, Duke Ellington, Prokofiev, and anything that qualifies as good music. My guy and I enjoy watching videos of old and new movies. Lately we've watched a lot of sci-fi, includiung The Last Witch Hunter, Riddick, Babylon AD, Ip Man, Cloud Atlas, Interstellar . . . we have become film buffs, meaning we both need to get to work making art and music again.
I was sick for quite awhile. I had a triple lumbar fusion with pedicle screws, rods, and bone grafts. I was sick with other things too, but the back operation was the hardest. I died during surgery. I came back changed. Don't worry — I still love playing the piano. But now, I have a clear and original statement to make. I'm looking for bookings. And I welcome donations and CD orders. I'm deeply grateful. - July 20th, 2016 - Jessica
