BRANDEE YOUNGER for Capsulocity.com:

If it's rare to see a harp nowadays, check out Brandee Younger's music and know that you've at least heard her before. The classically trained harpist from Long Island has played and recorded with some of the top names in music, including John Legend, Common, Drake and Ravi Coltrane. Younger released her debut EP, "Prelude" and in June 2011, the EP was recorded in an analog studio with bassist Dezron Douglas, drummer E.J. Strickland and vocalist Niia. She received her undergraduate degrees in Harp Performance and Music Business at the Hartt School of Music in West Hartford Connecticut. Following the death of Trayvon Martin, Younger recorded a special track called "He Has A Name (Awareness)" (http://brandee.bandcamp.com/), with proceeds going to the NAACP. Her goal is to make the harp "a more relevant force in today's music."
