Double MOBO award-winning YolanDa Brown is the premier female saxophonist in the UK and her Debut Album “April Showers May Flowers” was No1 on the iTunes and Amazon Jazz charts. She has toured with The Temptations, Diana Krall, Courtney Pine and Billy Ocean and collaborated with artists such as Mica Paris, Lemar, Matt Cardle, Reggae Legend Bob Marley’s son Julian Marley and as part of Jools Holland’s Rhythm & Blues Orchestra.
