Born to Iraqi immigrants, singer/songwriter Yasamin didn’t gather up the courage to pursue her musical dream until later in her life. This would mean leaving behind a full time career as a scientist and throwing herself fully into recording. Her first full length album is due out early 2017.
Yasamin first introduced her music in 2013 with “The Hello EP - Chasing Melodies”. Her music video for “Platinum and Gold” aired on C4. She has appeared on TVNZ’s Good Morning and has been featured on 95bFM and TheAudience.co.nz Top 10 Chart Show.
Yasamin has drawn comparisons to female musicians such as Corinne Bailey Rae and Ingrid Michaelson and sights her love for lyrics as what drew her to music initially.
Refusing to be pigeon-holed, Yasamin also writes a blog about the creative process and the resistance and self doubt that kept her from pursuing her musical dream for so long. She identifies it as the same resistance crippling so many of us from nurturing our creative dreams and taking action towards the life we only daydream about.
