Brandee Younger is today’s leading player of the harp in jazz. As a performer, composer and educator, she defies genres and labels. The Grammy-nominated artist has performed and recorded with artists as varied as Pharoah Sanders, Ravi Coltrane, Jack DeJohnette, Charlie Haden, Common, John Legend, The Roots and Lauryn Hill.
Her major label debut Somewhere Different (2021) was compared to the celestial jazz of Alice Coltrane, and her piece ‘Hortense’ was featured in the Netflix concert documentary, Beyoncé: Homecoming. In 2019, Younger performed her original music in Quincy Jones and Steve McQueen’s Soundtrack of America.
