Meet Jessy Yasmeen, the latest addition to This Could Be Your Music Label!
With both Dutch and South American roots, she brings the best of both worlds. Her dreamy indie folk is inspired by acts such as Ben Howard, Bon Iver and Matt Corby. She fits right in with current day artists like SOAK and Waxahatchee. With her songs she wants to challenge listeners to be vulnerable and help conquer personal battles like fear and desire.
Over the past three years, Jessy Yasmeen played more than 80 shows on stages in The Netherlands and Germany. Last year her debut EP saw the light of day, she won a big Dutch music award, ‘Grote Prijs van Rotterdam’ (category: singer-songwriter), and earned nominations for the Rotterdam Music Awards (categories: ‘the promise’ and ‘best track’).
Jessy Yasmeen has a lot of new songs and an EP ready to be released, starting with new single Dreams:
“Dreams is written in third person, telling about “she”, but it could be anyone. It is about someone who has a yearning desire, and from the uncertainties that it entails she dares to walk the path, but in fact all she wants is to dream.
From society, but also from your parents for example, you feel the pressure to do certain things related to which life phase you are in. Or you are in a relationship where you set yourself aside and lose yourself.
But if you really listen to your heart, you may find that you are doing things that don’t make you happy. Neglecting you true passion out of fear. But that is what you can overcome.”
Dreams is out now on BERT music (a divison of TCBYML)
