Having been promised an 'electrifying stage show' from 'a performer unlike anyone else in Godzone' by practically every events website in town; Sheba Williams had a lot to live up to when she took to the stage.
However, it would have taken the most hardened cynic not to sense, as the pulsing drum beats were joined by guitar, trumpet, saxophone and bass, that something very special was about to happen. And then - there she was, replete with headdress and various leotards throughout the night, commanding the stage with the graciousness of some majestic African queen.
Not just another singer behind a microphone, Sheba Williams is a writer, musician and performer extraordinaire. Quite appropriately, she has coined her own genre to describe her music: 'Calyptro' – a sound unlike any other, a fusion of hip-hop, soul, funk, electro, afrobeat, and then some, calling on influences as varied as her Caribbean heritage, her Aotearoa upbringing and her extensive travels, ranging from Berlin to Kyoto to Shanghai. This merges into an exotic and vivacious sound unable to be boxed into any particular place or time. - Undertheradar.com
