In Partnership with Band on the Wall, Show Stream TV bring you a live stream of Yazmin Lacey live from the Castle, Manchester.
Yazmin Lacey sings with the directness and emotional clarity of classic soul. Having written in her bedroom for her whole life, she began to play acoustic shows in 2014. As her reputation grew locally in Nottingham, she came to meet the diverse group of musicians who would form her band.
Black Moon EP was recorded in a makeshift living room studio and selected by Gilles Peterson to be BBC Radio 6’s Record of The Week (June 2017). It was produced by Yazmin and her band, talented multi-instrumentalists whose solo projects (Three Body Trio and Broadstrokes) are finding their own success.
After numerous high profile collaborations (Warren Xlnce, Congi) and support slots (Daudi Matsiko, Fatima, Low Leaf), Black Moon is Yazmin’s first physical release and has already received airplay on NTS, Jazz FM, BBC 1xtra, BBC 1 BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio 6 Music and more.
Yazmin is one of the UK's up and coming jazz and soul artists who are currently making jazz feel fresh and relevant. The UK jazz movement is currently moving at pace with real music played with style, talent and a relevant, modern story line.
Most notable acts of the new jazz scene are King Krule, Ezra Collective and Yussef Kamaal to name a few. If you like these guys you should definately check out Yazmin Lacey.
