New Track: Brandee Younger – “He Has A Name (Awareness)”

 

Classically trained harpist and our friend Brandee Younger recently created a beautiful heartfelt song in memory of the late Trayvon Martin and the injustice he suffered.

“He Has A Name (Awareness)” aims to help “bring awareness to the issues of racial profiling and injustice today and…open our eyes to reality instead of holding to irrational beliefs due to preconceived notions.”

She goes on to share the personal impact the case had on her, “For me, having a teenage brother who appears not unlike Trayvon, I can’t help but be fearful that he will be judged unfairly, based on stereotypes and appearance.”

All proceeds from the sale of the track will be donated to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund to support its continued work towards racial justice.

Hear the track below and purchase on Bandcamp to support this important cause.

New Track: Brandee Younger – “So Alive” ft. Niia (Tensei Remix) + MP3

 

We first caught New York based jazz harpist Brandee Younger during her performance as part of this year’s epic Harlem Stage with Miguel Atwood Ferguson. Today, we have a downtempo Tensei remix of her “So Alive” track with vocalist Niia. Absolutely gorgeous – kind of reminds us of the downtempo soul of the late 90′s and early 2000′s. Think a little Esthero, some Ming Xia of The Spooks. Good good ish.
