As a singer/vocalist I have over 25 year’s experience of singing and performing in the live music industry, I am a truly unique singer with captivating, soulful, seductive vocals and a passion and drive that always delivers the finest in vocal talent and performance, I have a love for Jazz, soul, R&B, motown classics and all good music, Throughout my singing career I have worked with various outstanding musicians and at festivals and events. I am currently recording and writing my own songs and continue to perform with various bands and musicians throughout the UK. I have recently performed at Jacksons Boat in sale and Coco’s lounge in Altrincham Manchester. I specialise in weddings, anniversaries, corporate and private events. I also love to sing in wine bars, clubs and venues, I am a versatile and adaptive singer who always delivers what my audience requires. I love to get people dancing for a party or to provide music and vocals for that special intimate moment or event, It is a dream come true to be doing this professionally and to share my vocal talent aspirations with others, My musical influences are many and are very versatile. As a child I was inspired to write my own songs material and embraced opportunities to share my vocal talent with others, I have performed at various venues and locations across the northwest as a vocal artist. And I embrace the opportunity and look forward to performing as an artist locally, nationally and internationally. I enjoy and consider it an honour and privilege to work with positive and serious minded musicians with a real love, understanding and interest in music. Yolande
