WAYNE WILLIAMS BIO 2018
In a career spanning more than four decades, Wayne Williams has helped define what’s next in popular music, from his days as an architect of Chicago House Music to nurturing award-winning artists at major labels to producing the world’s premier House festival. As a teenage DJ in 1970s Chicago, he was the first to bring disco from the city’s gay, underground dance clubs to a receptive young audience on the South Side. Seeing an opportunity in the exploding demand for his services, Wayne founded the Chosen Few Disco Corp. (later renamed the Chosen Few DJs) in 1977, bringing on board other young DJs – Jesse Saunders, Tony Hatchett, Alan King, and Andre Hatchett. The crew’s skills and passion would help shape the sound that became House Music.

Since then, Wayne has kept his finger on the pulse of music as a DJ, producer, and A&R executive. His DJ career spans residencies and appearances at clubs and festival around the world, from the Amsterdam Dance Event and Winter Music Conference to Tambor Party ATL, Tambor Party Cruise, Fox Hollow Houston, King King L.A., Roots at Cielo and Sullivan Room in New York, and Chicago’s Shrine, House of Blues, and The Promontory. Since his recent move to Los Angeles, he's launched two new events, Warehouse L.A. and the Afrohouse-focused Tryvbl, while also playing guest sets across the United States, including the acclaimed traveling party, A Club Called Rhonda, and Le Bain at New York’s Standard Hotel.

As a record company executive – he was the first A&R rep at Chicago’s first house music label, Trax Records, before serving long tenures with Jive and RCA Records – Wayne’s work with a wide spectrum of artists has generated millions of albums sold, hundreds of award nominations and wins, and more than 60 gold and platinum plaques. His musical expertise extends to producing, remixing and arranging, with more than 100 house, hip-hop and R&B titles to his credit, as well as GRAMMY nominations and a 2015 NAACP Image Award.

Since 2016, Wayne has managed A&R for DJ Terry Hunter’s T’s Box Records, a House Music label that has produced several #1 releases. In 2017, Wayne, along with his Chosen Few DJ brothers Alan King and Terry Hunter, founded Chosen Few Artist Management, whose current roster of clients includes House powerhouses Monique Bingham and Chuck “The Voice” Roberts. In 2018, both artists appeared on the chart-topping “In The Beginning (There Was Jack)”, a Terry Hunter-produced update of Roberts’ iconic spoken word house classic.

In addition to music production and management, Wayne and the Chosen Few DJs have produced the Chosen Few Picnic & Festival, which attracts more than 30,000 House Music fans to Chicago each July. Started in 1990 as a small reunion of friends, the internationally renowned celebration is believed to be the oldest and largest event of its kind, and was the only music festival ever recognized by a sitting President of the United States when the Honorable Barack Obama, 44th president of the United States, commemorated its 25th anniversary in 2015.
