FRIDAY 03 MAY - 8:00 PM
Jasmine Myra is a saxophonist, composer and band leader. Based in Leeds, she is part of the bustling, creative, cross-genre music scene in the city. She has surrounded herself with some of the best young talent in the north of England.
Jasmine’s original instrumental music has a euphoric and uplifting sound. Her influences are as diverse as Bonobo, Olafur Arnalds and Kenny Wheeler. Their music shares an emotive quality that you can also hear in Jasmine’s own compositions. Jasmine has recently signed to Gondwana Records and has been working with producer (and recent Turner Sims sell-out artist) Matthew Halsall, whose keen ear for talent helped bring the music of GoGo Penguin, Mammal Hands and Hania Rani to the wider world.
A great new artist! Jamie Cullum, BBC Radio 2
