About The Blogger

Demetrius "afreshmusic" Williams is the nephew of 1960’s and 70’s recording artist/Soul Diva, Pauline Shivers. Demetrius started TheFreshMusicPage.com as AfreshMusic in November of 2007. Inspired by the musical journey of his aunt: having shared the same stage as B.B King, Ike & Tina Turner and Smokey Robinson.

Demetrius was influenced heavily by his parents and their love for music. His mother taught him about the smooth grooves of Smokey Robinson, The Emotions and Chaka Khan. While his father taught him to appreciate Rock, Blues, and Funk.

Growing up in Chicago gave Demetrius the opportunity to hear legendary radio hall of fame Disc Jockey Herb Kent every Saturday and Sunday morning. Learning more about Soul music.

Demetrius is not only interested in the music of yesterday but the music of today also. Many people think that Soul music/R&B is dead, but it just lives underground and occasionally comes up for air. Jazmine Sullivan, Maxwell, Musiq, India.Arie and Chrisette Michele are examples of Soul music in Pop culture. While Van Hunt, Ledisi, Javier, Rahsaan DeVaughn and Goapele are examples of the music that's underground.


As a writer Demetrius "afreshmusic" Williams has written for thecubiclechick.com as a Pop Culture and Current affairs blogger. His work has been featured on such websites such as TheFreshxpress.com, philly.com and USA Today. His political thoughts have been featured in the Redeye Newspaper as well as on Anderson Cooper 360 on CNN.


Our mission is simple: Put the spotlight on artists by featuring underrated and unsung artists on The Fresh Music Page.  Giving the artists, a unique platform to be introduced or re-introduced to our readers.


It brings me great pride to introduce and reintroduce to the music of my aunt, Pauline Shivers and others such as Linda Jones, James Jamerson, The Lovelites, Syl Johnson and many more.

While music is the focus, there will be occasional blogs on politics, current events and other forms of entertainment. 


Demetrius is a graduate of National-Louis University, where he received his B.A. in Applied Behavioral Science and a Master of Science in Human Resource Management and Development.
