Longtime R&B/soul singer, entrepreneur and radio personality Alyson Williams unveils her latest release, the single “Summer Nights In Harlem”. The veteran singer brings a jazzy, mature, grown-folks vibe to “Summer Nights In Harlem” as well as sweet sultriness to the accompanying “flip-side”, the ballad, “The Romance Of You”. It’s the sound Ms. Williams has been known for, dating back to her years when she was the first R&B singer signed to Russell Simmons’ Def Jam Records during the 1980s. When not recording or performing live, Ms. Williams hosts the weekly radio show, Love Notes with Alyson Williams - In The Chill Zone, on the Harlem-based WHCR-FM in New York City. She’s interviewed a range of guests from Grammy award winners Chaka Khan to the Manhattan Transfer. In addition, Ms. Williams is the founder of A Woman’s Prerogative production company, which allows her to develop musical stage works, produce concert series and create treatments for future television projects.
