Legendary rockabilly pianist Jason D. Williams has joined the ranks of musical artists endorsing Kawai instruments. He has spent a lifetime behind the piano connecting with country and rock ‘n’ roll greats while creating a persona that’s 100% original. Widely regarded as one of today’s best rockabilly piano players, Jason is a spirited, take no prisoners performer.
During his 30+ year career, Jason D. Williams has been featured on countless TV and radio programs, from MTV and VH1 to PBS and NPR. He has also been the subject of many news articles, including a feature article in the November 2011 issue of Keyboard magazine.
Rolling Stone magazine once noted: “There hasn’t been raw, vintage boogie this solid since Jerry Lee lost his steam in the Seventies.”
A wild man onstage, Jason credits influences like Jerry Lee Lewis, Moon Mulligan, Memphis Slim and Al Jolsen for helping to develop his vast repertoire and seemingly endless energy. “I’ve always welcomed the comparisons; my influences were some of the greatest entertainers ever to be seen.”
