About Cortney Williams
Get to know Cortney Williams
I'm a smooth jazz and R&B Trumpet player. For four years, I attended Kentucky State University and played behind various jazz musicians from Detroit to New York and parts of the southeast. I recorded my first jazz album when I was 15 and another when I was 17 with my high school jazz band in Toledo, Ohio, where I grew up. In 1997, I moved to Atlanta in search of work in music, and I ended up working with Tyler Perry in the film "Meet the Browns" and the sitcom "House of Payne." I'm also a USA Olympic and professional boxing coach, as well as an Olympic boxing committee certified coach. But life has been music, playing drums as my first instrument and trumpet as my main instrument.
