Jasmine Myra

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.

I was immediately drawn to Jasmine’s music. I could hear jazz, electronica in her music but with a deep, honest, emotional quality. I was really impressed with her skills as a composer and bandleader, that she is open and intelligent enough to bring all those influences together, to make something fresh and original. We were also delighted to work with a young artist from the North of England. London is often seen as the place to be, but cities like Manchester and Leeds are full of creative musicians too, and that sense of local community is at the heart of our values as a label. Matthew Halsall
