A leading voice of the harp today, performer, composer and educator Brandee Younger defies genres and labels. Recently nominated for a 2022 GRAMMY for Best Instrumental Composition and NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Album, she has performed and recorded with artists including Pharoah Sanders, Ravi Coltrane, Jack Dejohnette, Charlie Haden, Common, John Legend, The Roots and Lauryn Hill.

“Exuding a palpable Alice Coltrane vibe, the way that ‘Spirit U Will’ fades in and out feels as if you're overhearing an excerpt from a celestial concert”, wrote in a praising review of her major label debut “Somewhere Different” in 2021, released by the legendary impulse! Records. Her original composition “Hortense” was featured in the Netflix Concert-Documentary, Beyoncé: Homecoming and in 2019, Ms. Younger was selected to perform her original music as a featured performer for Quincy Jones and Steve McQueens’ “Soundtrack of America”.

Brandee Younger’s ability to seamlessly inject the harp into arrangements and venues where it has historically been overlooked is a testament to her deep love for and exemplary command of the instrument.
