Artists

Brandee Younger Trio

Event Description

A leading voice of the harp, Brandee Younger has performed and recorded across countless genres with artists including John Legend, The Roots, Lauryn Hill, Common, Pharoah Sanders, Ravi Coltrane, Ron Carter, and Charlie Haden. She recently made history at the 2022 Grammy Awards as the first Black female solo artist nominated in the “Best Instrumental Composition” category for her song “Beautiful Is Black." The mesmerizing track is from her 2021 critically well-received major label debut album, Somewhere Different, that also received a 2022 NAACP Image Award nomination for “Outstanding Jazz Album – Instrumental.” Additionally, her original composition “Hortense” was featured in the Netflix Concert-Documentary, Beyoncé: Homecoming, and in 2019, the tireless musician was selected to perform her original music as a featured performer for Quincy Jones and Steve McQueens’ “Soundtrack of America.” Her ability to seamlessly inject the harp into arrangements and venues where it has historically been overlooked is a testament to her deep love for and exemplary command of the instrument. Her latest 2023 album, Brand New Life, includes features by Makaya McCraven, Meshell N’degeocello and Mumu Fresh, and she’ll play songs from that record and more with her trio, Allan Mednard drums and Rahsaan Carter bass.

“No harpist thus far has been more capable of combining all of the modern harp traditions — from Salzedo, through Dorothy Ashby, through Alice Coltrane — with such strength, grace and commitment.” - Ravi Coltrane, The New York Times
