THE ARTIST

Yasmine Kyd is a Paris-based singer/songwriter of mixed origins. She grew up on the Atlantic coast of Brittany, listening to sounds from around the globe: Berber folk music (her dad’s Algerian), jazz, soul, gospel, bossa nova and British pop music. Seamlessly piecing together her influences, she has a knack for melodies that stay with you, serviced by a distinctively mellifluous, yet powerful vocal presence.

While her first album 'Earth Woman' (2010) featured a collection of sensitive soul ballads, with a warm acoustic production, her second album 'Mythical Creatures' (2013) was an elegantly produced collection of love songs to jazz and blues, with a hint of nu soul and hip hop, which was described as reminiscent of both Joni Mitchell and Erykah Badu.

THE ALBUM

An unapologetic claim to versatility, Yasmine's third album 'Privacy Settings' opens her generous palette to new experiences which could very well make this record something of a 'modern classic'.

Through Yasmine's words and the range of her musical choices, “Privacy Settings” explores the fluctuating boundaries between privacy and exposure in the contemporary world, reflected in a musical journey taking you from a funky slightly dystopian story (That One Day), to an emotive jazz ballad (Is it Time to Go Home?), leading up to a filmed walkabout through the streets of Paris (Paris Jam 69), following an intimate reggae number (Personal), and culminating with a sensual North African acoustic sound picture (Neapolis)...

 

An unapologetic claim to versatility, Yasmine's third album 'Privacy Settings', due for release on 14 Oct. 2016, opens her generous palette to new experiences which could very well make this record something of a 'modern classic’.
