Quotes:

"…She was incredible. I sat out on the porch, up the hill a little bit, and I was transported to another place. How brilliant is she? She is absolutely fantastic. What a voice, what a keyboard player, just absolutely extraordinary!" 

-Nanci Griffith (Singer-Songwriter)

"Her fingers seem to use keys in every octave on the piano. She sings her own thoughts, inside her made up melodies, to her own accompaniment. She is truly a one woman show."

-Annie Humphrey (Singer-songwriter, Activist)

“Anthems aren’t easy to write – probably because they’re important.  People may want to live by them.  Call on them.  Rely on them.

Their purpose is to speak to others in very important times.  Make sense.  Soothe.  Inspire. Strengthen.

I listen to so much music that, sometimes, it tends to run together.

That’s why it’s refreshing to come across a compilation that refuses to run with anyone else.

It wants to run alone.

Sometimes through a warm, sunny day; others, through wind and a biting cold rain.

The Nautilus takes me back to the fascination of putting a conch shell to my ear as a child.

Listening – and then imagining.”

 

Al Ross (Wisconsin Public Radio-Host/Producer: Spectrum West)

Yazmin has lived a life of music from day one, having grown up with musician parents. Her career has taken her many places from recording her 'Solo' EP at Fantasy Studio in Berkeley, California to opening for Nanci Griffith in Bayfield, Wisconsin. Her latest album The Nautilus was recorded in Havana, Cuba at Mo. Records Studio with producers and musicians she met while living and studying music there. Over the years, Cuban music has played a big roll in her life. She spent over a decade studying Latin piano with master in the field Rebeca Mauleón-Santana, among others, and while in Havana studied at the highly esteemed Instituto Superior de Arte.

When living in St. Paul, MN she studied piano performance under a full scholarship at McNally Smith College of Music and performed extensively with multiple midwest salsa groups including Salsabrosa, Charanga Tropical and her own group La Banda Nueva. Songwriting has always been the common thread for her and earned her recognition as the 2010 Lake Superior Big Top Chautauqua Songwriter of the Year.
 

Whether pounding out Cuban tumbaos or singing a soft, heart-wrenching ballad, Yazmin's music comes straight from the soul. Her newest album The Nautilus highlights her very unique Folk-Rock sound with a mix of Cuban influences. It tells a love story from beginning to end and takes the listener on a journey through every phase of one woman's experience: Before, Falling, Distance, Broken, Healing, and After. It is all at once empowering and deeply vulnerable. The raw, human emotion of her songs is transmitted through her powerful stage presence and stellar band.
