Northern Virginia native Yasmin Williams grew up playing "guitar" on a video game controller.  When the time came to turn her hand to "real" guitars, she promptly informed all other players that up til that point, they'd been doing it wrong.  And witnessing Yasmin in performance, she makes a pretty convincing case.

With her ambidextrous and pedidextrous, multi-instrumental techniques of her own making, Yasmin Williams is truly a guitarist for the new century.  Despite being all-instrumental, "Urban Driftwood" follows a narrative arc of 2020, illustrating both a personal journey and a national reckoning, through Williams’ evocative, lyrical compositions.
