Yazmyn Hendrix is a solo artist originally from London who uses her voice to create her musical environment. Using a loop pedal she layers lush harmonies and enchanting sounds, building up a wall of sound as she sings.
Yazmyn Hendrix, London-born loop artist, layers powerfully enchanting vocals, lush harmonies, haunting voice effects and gentle beatboxing. She makes her music in the now – carving something from nothing and making time stand still five minutes at a time. She is an experimental multi-genre singer and songwriter who writes simple songs about complex things; love life, reality and dreams. Yazmyn is synaesthetic, meaning she associates each song, each word and each instrument with colours and textures; this gives her an original perspective when writing and performing.
Yazmyn collaborated with Retrospective for Love on their single, ‘Let Me Know’ from their debut album, ‘Random Activities of the Heart’. The track is a carefully crafted groove with lyrics loaded with romanticism and nostalgia, allowing their sound to dabble in delirious déjà vu bringing you back to the first time you ever felt heartache. A union of beautifully crafted jazz and soul vibes have enveloped a collaboration with Mrisi. ‘In a Moment,’ the first track to be released online from debut EP ‘Mamela,’ gathered the attention of many. A live recording from Mrisi‘s mother’s house, ‘Mamela’ is a work of resilience and conscience; it has the ability to make us realise how much impact our words can have. Watch this space for more to come from the pair.
Having returned to London from Brighton this year, Yazmyn is about to release her debut EP, entitled ‘Saturn Returns.’ Jon Gomm says “Quite Very Good!” before giving her a support slot on his UK Tour. Yazmyn has also supported the likes of Dizraeli and Retrospective for Love. She has recently played at Pride London, Standon Calling and the Wilderness Festival in the UK, as well as Pas De Trai and Montagnola Bologna festivals in Italy. With just one teaser released so far, it has already been shared by Rag ‘N’ Bone Man and Shlomo, among others, gaining over 25K views. We are just as excited as them to see what comes next.
