Yasmin Kiddle taught herself to play the guitar, bass, drums, piano, and music production from her bedroom while listening to icons such as Minnie Ripperton and Aretha Franklin. The gal’s latest single “Foolish” has the classy gist of soul, but with the sparkling oomph of contemporary pop sound. But the spotlight of her work is her voice – it’s deep-cutting and craftily maneuvers between pitches without friction. There is an undeniable lure to her vocals that absorbs you instantly and adds an emotional weight that can be felt to the core. Stream below:
