BRITISH RnB STAR-IN-THE-MAKING ‘YOMI’ UNLEASHES HIS SUPERB DEBUT ALBUM!

Currently burning a hole in Bristol (UK) dancefloors, top new RnB vocal talent YOMI is intent on setting fires across the world with the release of his debut longplayer ‘GET TO KNOW ME’ on November 13th.

Effortlessly blending street level sounds with more mainstream flavours, ‘Get To Know Me’ is an authentically British RnB joint, but one which pays its dues to the Stateside mother lode. From the fiery club bootyshaker ‘Fantasy’ - which will be the first single off the album - through the slow-jam ‘Girlfriend Boyfriend’ (featuring Marley-Dee), to the sly cover of the Fine Young Cannibals’ pop-soul classic ‘She Drives Me Crazy’, the album brings together all manner of influences, from hip hop and reggaeton to two-step and soul. The one constant is Yomi’s distinctive voice.

London-born Yomi came to music early in life, MCing with reggae sound system Genius when he was just 11 years old. At age 13 he had moved on to singing, and began developing the silky smooth, soulful voice which drips all over ‘Get To Know Me’ like honey. By 15 he was a veteran of studio work, garnering experience as a session singer whilst also writing his own material, and by 20 he was performing live at venues in London, to the approval of both critics and audiences.

It was at this point that Yomi relocated to Bristol in South West England – a place famous for being home to top talent like Roni Size, Massive Attack and Portishead – to team up with BlackStory Records and producer Mixmaster M. Together they honed Yomi’s talent, writing and producing original material whilst live gigs supporting acts such as Dru Hill and So Solid helped to sharpen Yomi’s performance axe.

Now at 24 he is ready to step up to the plate with his solo album: a body of work which reflects his maturity and underlines the lessons he has learned in life – including lessons from his own troubled youth. For Yomi – who cites the likes of Craig David, Bob Marley, LL Cool J, Lionel Ritchie, Ms Dynamite and Sanchez as amongst his diverse influences – music has helped draw him away from a darker path, and now he wants to share his gift with as many people as possible. It’s time to GET TO KNOW YOMI.

Yomi’s album ‘Get To Know Me’ (BlackStory Records) will be available at all major retail and online stores from November 13th (or on pre-release now at www.blackstoryrecords.com)

For more information, to arrange an interview with Yomi or for bookings, please contact Jennifer Smith at BlackStory Records.
