Yazmin Lacey came into music late and almost as if by fate. The 34-year-old throughout makes the intimate experiences of “break ups, moving, starting again, making mistakes” feel both deeply personal and universal, conveyed with rawness and honesty. With a chameleonic sound and a spontaneous recording style, her 2023 debut album Voice Notes captures the beauty of imperfection in all the big moments.
Over 3 projects, Lacey has charmed minds with powerful vignettes and graceful grooves, which sonically illustrate the different environments they were written in. Voice Notes follows a similar structure, addressing everything from generational changes to unrequited love over warped soul, reggae and electronica. Although the record’s themes are more developed, there’s always been a rawness to her work. Finding beauty in imperfection, Yazmin’s unfiltered approach has seduced tastemakers like Gilles Peterson and rewarded her millions of views on music platforms like COLORSxSTUDIOS.
