OUT NOW | 09/11/18
A cosy-jazz ensemble with an easy-listening touch for both jazz lovers and even those that don't think it's their cup of tea....until they hear this!
Yasmin Natasha will release her fourth single 'On Your Side' which she describes as, 'a modern take on personal favourites Astrud Gilberto & Stan Getz; only, I am both Getz & Gilberto in this track'. This particular ensemble gives the listener a taste of Yasmin's jazzy side following her previous releases (This Is Real, Make You Free, Creases' which are more on the pop spectrum.
At the very end of the outro, listeners can hear Yasmin's cheeky laugh which captured, in just a few moments, the overall feel of the recording process with producer Fraser Smith (Shed Seven). Yasmin's professional yet relaxed approach to her recording process is something that is important to this beachy artist & saxophonist and wants her audience to also feel when engaging with her both live and digitally.
The track was recorded, mixed and mastered at Metropolis Studios and produced by Fraser Smith (also features on keys!). The track features guitarist Ro Slater, bassist Sandro Giacometti and written/vocals/alto sax by Yasmin herself. Artwork by Yasmin Natasha // Photography by Simon Ackerman Photography.
Originally from seaside town Bournemouth, Dorset, Yasmin Natasha has spent some time swimming through London as a folksy singer-songwriter and sax player that oozes sunshine with her engaging pop sax melodies, catchy hooks, poetic lyrics all centred around the theme of paradise and escapism in contemporary life. Now this beach-loving artist is back in her hometown ready to make some waves in her hometown and collaborate with fellow creatives.
Brought up by the iconic south coast of England and having travelled the world since she was 9 years old, Yasmin's cultured lifestyle has ultimately influenced her musical direction whilst being inspired by George Ezra, Paul Simon, John Mayer, Jack Johnson, Amy Winehouse and Astrud Gilberto.
Each of Yasmin's songs combine melody, poetry and contemporary hooks for an easy-listening yet infectious listen and have been aired across BBC Introducing London, South & Berkshire along with some local and independent radio stations.
Yasmin has caught the attention of BBC Introducing London, South & Berkshire who have aired each of Yasmin's singles followed up with an invitation to conduct a live performance and interview (Berkshire & South). As well as BBC Introducing, Yasmin's music has done particularly well along the coast with independent stations, podcasts which have led to an increased fanbase.
