ABOUT THE ARTIST
Willerm Delisfort’s career is devoted to expressing musical styles that range from jazz, gospel, R&B, and so much more. Willerm’s versatility has created a high demand for his talent with prominent jazz, rap, soul, and fusion artists including award-winning World Music Guitarist Fareed Haque, Grammy Award winning artist T-Pain, Lauryn Hill, Kirk Whalum, Louis Bellson, Lew Soloff, Calvin Newborn, Corey Wilkes, Curtis Fuller, and Jimmy Heath.
By the age of 11 studying under the tutelage of South Florida legend John McMinn, he has performed for people such as Democratic Presidential Candidate and former First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton, as well as former President of Haiti Jean-Bertrand Aristide, showing Willerm had a bright future ahead of him. With his growing interest in self expression through music, at the early age 15, Willerm began to explore the realm of composition. By the time he was a junior in high school, he had composed many musical masterpieces, and arranged songs for ensembles of all sizes and levels. This would grab the attention of legendary Trumpeter Melton Mustafa, with whom for the next 5 years he cultivated his songwriting. Looking for a group to play his music, Willerm founded "The Delisfort Project". They began to perform all over the world including a European Tour with the Ladies of Jazz. The 2006-2009 Recipient of the Northern Illinois University Liberace Scholarship, Willerm spent 3 years studying with the Legendary Willie Pickens. Challenged, and matured, his hunger for self expression grew rapidly. Willerm Delisfort is here to stamp his name into the books of history. To this day, he is grateful for the knowledge that was passed down to him from those who had a hand in putting him on this path. It was their patience and understanding that taught him how to love the art form and express his musical message to the world.
