Brandee Younger

Originally from Long Island, New York, Brandee Younger is a well known, contemporary “hybrid harpist.’ Younger, who is classically trained, frequently collaborates with jazz saxophonist Ravi Coltrane and has worked with the likes of Drake, Ryan Leslie, Common, and John Legend.

Earlier this year, she released Wax & Wane, a critically acclaimed collection of songs that perfectly exemplifies her genre-spanning sound.

Brandee Younger is also the curator of Harp on Park — a series of lunchtime live-music performances that take place in the lobby of a New York high-rise.
