🎷✨ Tilles Jazz Fest Artist Spotlight! ✨🎷 We’re back with another highlight for our upcoming Tilles Jazz Fest on July 20th! Today, we’re thrilled to feature the innovative and trailblazing harpist Brandee Younger! Brandee is revolutionizing the harp for the digital era, breaking boundaries over the past fifteen years. In 2022, she made history as the first Black woman to be nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Instrumental Composition and received an NAACP Image Award nomination. Her latest album, Brand New Life, is a testament to her artistic evolution, saluting her musical foremother Dorothy Ashby while speaking to modern sentiments. Born in Hempstead, New York, Brandee’s journey from classical training at the Hartt School of Music to jazz explorations encouraged by saxophonist Jackie McLean is nothing short of inspiring. Brandee has played alongside jazz legends like Pharaoh Sanders and Ravi Coltrane and has worked with cultural icons such as Common and Lauryn Hill. Beyond performing, she’s a dedicated educator, currently teaching at NYU and The New School. Join us for a day of incredible music, family fun, and more! Gates open at noon. Stay tuned every Monday for more artist spotlights! Visit TillesCenter.org or the link in our bio for tickets and more information! Jazz Fest Sponsors: Sandy and Eric Krasnoff. Additional support provided by Dime Community Bank, Lisa and Brian Land, Jessica Brassler and George Kakoulides.
