Venue: Walled Garden, on Friday.

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. Together, they’ve written an EP which combines Yazmin’s incisive songwriting with the vitality of jazz.

In 2015, Yazmin became part of Gilles Peterson’s Future Bubblers Project, which led to a Brownswood Basement session and numerous high profile gigs in London. More recently she’s played gigs in Nottingham and London with Natalie Duncan, Kinkajous, and Daudi Matsiko.

Black Moon EP will be released this spring, following which the band will be playing shows and festivals across the country.
