Bio - Short
Hailing from Greek Cypriot roots and growing up in North London, music is the constant in Yasmin Kiddle’s life. With no formal teaching Yasmin mastered guitar and piano, while her desire to express through writing began at the age of only 7. Musically her influences come from two unlikely worlds, classic 60’s rock and soul, fused with the modern grime, RnB and electronic genres have resulted in melodic, soothing songwriting and honest, touching story telling.
After being introduced to Steve Cradock (Ocean Colour Scene & Paul Weller) in 2017, the two have collaborated together to produce both of Yasmin's EP's. Following the success of Yasmins debut EP, The Precede, a support slot was landed on the Ocean Colour Scene 2018 national tour, which included performances at the SSE Hyrdo in Glasgow and the Dublin Olympia Theatre. The Ocean Colour Scene boys have since invited Yasmin back to support them on their 2019 'Summer in Scotland' tour. Shortly after, Yasmins sophomore EP 'Soul Tide' was released to an incredible response, with Yasmin being named "one of the most exciting talents in British Soul".
