According to the New York Times, Williams is one of the country's most creative and imaginative young solo guitarists. NPR Music has also praised her, naming her its Breakthrough Artist of 2021, and noting that “Yasmin Williams treats her guitar like a playground.” Her music is influenced by a diverse range of genres, including smooth jazz, R&B, go-go, hip-hop, and West African griots.

Williams began playing electric guitar in eighth grade after she beat the video game Guitar Hero 2 on expert level. She was initially inspired by Jimi Hendrix and other shredders she was familiar with through the game, but quickly moved on to acoustic guitar, where she found that it allowed her to combine fingerstyle techniques with the lap-tapping she had developed through Guitar Hero and to perform as a solo artist. By tenth grade, she had released an EP of she had composed herself.

Dawning” has multiple meanings for Williams, representing the dawn of her professional music career, a new love in her personal life, and the dawning sky that inspired her to write the song. She also reflects on how composing “Dawning” was a revelation for her, highlighting the significant changes that have taken place in her life both professionally and personally. Williams is excited to be working with Nonesuch Records and the exceptional artists roster, and is grateful to Aoife O'Donovan, Kafari, and Nic Gareiss for contributing their talents to this song. She is looking forward to sharing more music and a new album with the world soon.
