Brandee Younger Jazz Harp Quintet
Brandee Younger, a young harpist, has been proven to defy genres and labels and has created a unique niche in both traditional and non-traditional harp arenas. In addition to expressively interpreting traditional harp repertoire, Ms Younger is most recognized for working with Jazz royalty as well as Grammy winning Hip-Hop producers and artists. Her ability to feature the harp in genres of music where the instrument is often absent is a testament of her love for the instrument, and her cross-reaching ability as a musician.
Brandee Younger – harp; Stacy Dillard – tenor saxophone; Dezron Douglas – bass; E.J. Strickland – drums; Haneef Nelson – trumpet
