Yazmin Lacey (born in east London) is a British singer based in Nottingham.Having written in her bedroom for her whole life, Lacey began to play acoustic shows in 2014. As her reputation grew locally in Nottingham, she came to meet the diverse group of musicians who would form her band The Running Circle.
She has been fusing her love of Lover’s Rock, hip-hop, jazz, Motown and electronics since 2013.Armed with nectar-sweet vocals and a discerning taste in beats, her classy sound is two-parts golden era jazz and one-part British urban. Things started really coming together for her a couple of years back, when she caught the ear of Gilles Peterson and won a place on his Future Bubblers mentorship scheme.
Since then, she’s teamed up with Running Circle Records for her new EP Black Moon, a flavoursome six-track introduction to her retro-future style.After a string of collaborations with the likes of Warren Xlnce and Congi, plus support slots with Natalie Duncan and Low Leaf, Black Moon marks Yazmin’s first solo physical release.
