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 eight saxophone tracks and for the first time two vocal tracks (Bitter Sweet and Without You) on which YolanDa showcases her beautiful voice.
