Artist Biography by

Born and raised into a musical family, Dacia A. Blodgett-Williams has been exposed to a wide range of music from early on. Like her siblings, Williams developed an interest in specific instruments, focusing on the piano and voice.

Through the good graces of a good family friend, Williams was exposed to live musical theater in the Los Angeles area. In her household, classical music was regularly blasting from the stereo, as well jazz,'50s-'70s music and the occasional novelty album from Spike Jones or Allan Sherman.

Williams participated in choir off and on from elementary through middle school. But in high school she was very active in the school's vocal music association. During her senior year she landed a piano solo playing "The Maple Leaf Rag" during the association's prestigious annual concert. She also auditioned and successfully made the Music Department at California State University, Northridge as a piano major.

There was one slight challenge standing in the way of her success as a musician. Williams has been hearing-impaired since birth. Remarkably, she has been able to sing the difficult second soprano part throughout her years in choir and church. Williams opted to go for a degree in journalism and focus her understanding of music, musical theatre in the arena of critiquing and to use her talents in the church arena.

Williams graduated from CSUN with a Bachelor's degree in journalism in December 1993 and has enjoyed a successful career in the industry, writing for such publications as The Los Angeles Daily News, Deaf USA Newspaper, The Prevue Channel, TV Guide Channel, TV Guide Interactive and TV Guide Online. ~ Dacia A.
