Music has always been a major factor in the life of American entertainer and music executive, Nolfris “Slim KuttaR” Williams. Born in Birmingham, Alabama and raised in New Orleans, Slim KuttaR developed an eclectic range of musical tastes from the hard driving vocal styling of the gospel quartet to the syncopated rhythms of the second line. He draws upon this influence in both his own music, and his very formidable work behind the scenes with other artists. He comes from a long line of talented singers and entertainers with a family that includes the late, great Paul Williams of the Temptations. In his debut EP, A Conversation at the Witz Inn, Slim KuttaR incorporates a diverse mix including jazz, hip-hop, and classical in each of his songs. Slim KuttaR says his music “is about having fun and enjoying life no matter where you are on the journey.” Written by Slim KuttaR and produced by Cornell “Suga Bear” Perkins, A Conversation at the Witz Inn is scheduled for release in 2019.
