Double MOBO award-winning YolanDa Brown is UK’s premier female saxophonist, known for seamlessly blending jazz, soul and reggae.

 

She has toured with The Temptations, Diana Krall, Courtney Pine and Billy Ocean and collaborated with artists such as Mica Paris, Reggae Legend Bob Marley’s son Julian and as part of Jools Holland’s Rhythm & Blues Orchestra.

 

As much entrepreneur as she is musician, as much gifted singer-songwriter as she is the UK’s premier saxophonist, this is a young lady with an entrepreneurial bent who, in 2012, is going to make a considerable mainstream splash, her name in lights at last.

 

After her MOBOs success, for example, she was invited to play before the President of Russia at the Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg (“I played them some jazz but also introduced them to reggae; they loved it!”), as well as travelling to Jamaica to perform for the country’s Prime Minister.

 

Fresh off her Reggae Love Songs Tour, YolanDa Brown will play from her new album to be released in 2017, “Love Politics War” a delicious fusion of reggae and jazz melodies: sunshine music as well as some of her classic hits.

 

This is just a snapshot of the talents and dedication in all areas, be it music, business or charity of this remarkable and unique Black woman.  Read her full awesome profile here.
