About This Event

Ayanna Williams, BD3, Durieux


Ayanna Williams

Durieux is a self taught singer songwriter from the Highbridge section of the Bronx, NY. He is known for writing music that hits home and for having a sound that is often hard to describe. Since 2012 he has been performing all over the city; both as a solo act and with his band; in venues such as Arlenes Grocery, The Shrine, and most notable The Apollo. In 2018 Durieux released “Are We?” and had every person who attended a show singing with him and he hopes to continue that trend with his new music off of his upcoming album “Something Real”.



Brooklyn MC BD3 is a walking testament that inspiration flows through different mediums and currents, no record of his sounds the same. When we think we got him pegged, he counter-strikes with another knockout vibe that leaves us questioning what is it he can’t do?.

BD3 showcases not only his versatility in content and delivery, but also the rare ability to invoke a range of emotions with each individual song so seamless and natural. He leaves it up to the listener to find the commonality, difference and significance in each piece of work. What can you find “What is your inspiration?”
