YolanDa Brown is a one-off, very much a woman of her time. As much entrepreneur as she is musician, as much gifted singer-songwriter as she is the UK's premier saxophonist.
After several years on the world’s jazz circuits, she is now poised to release her debut album, April Showers, May Flowers- out Feb 13th on Black Grape Records.
YolanDa’s debut album will surely see her cult reputation brought to the fore. April Showers, May Flowers is a beautifully sculpted record that touches lightly on jazz and soul and R&B, each track bestowed with the kind of lyrical insight - on love, on life - that suggests its author is something of a poet, too.
It is an album of effortless unfurling grace and impeccable soulful poise, featuring 8 Saxophone tracks and for the first time 2 vocal tracks (Bitter Sweet and Without You) on which YolanDa showcases her beautiful voice.
