W.O.A International signs UK's upcoming Jazz Star Yaz Alexander

Jazz music's new phenomenon now on the W.O.A International Booking Agency Roster

Goa India - 22nd May, 2010 - W.O.A International's eclectic mix of artists on their elite Artist Roster is being referred to as The most sought after artist list in and around India. With some of Rock, Pop, Metal & Chillout music's biggest names signed to W.O.A International there is however one genre that has constantly been growing at W.O.A international behind the scenes and that is Jazz and its various sub genres. In the past W.O.A International have helped their jazz artists reach unimaginable heights in the industry by having artists like Luna Blanca placed alongside artists like Youssouf N'Dour, Neneh Cherry & Nelly Furtado on Universal Music's major compilations. Various smooth jazz artists have hit top positions on main stream charts after being signed to W.O.A Records and these Jazz artists signed to W.O.A International are today some of the most booked artists on the circuit in India.

W.O.A International's A&R Division have done it again by signing a new rising jazz/reggae music star who is slated to be UK's next big sensation - Yaz Alexander. 

Yaz Alexander is one of the UK's unsung reggae / jazz music heroines whose history in those genres spans over twenty years. A former backing vocalist for UK reggae luminaries such as Pato Banton and the iconic Steel Pulse, Yaz showcases her sultry and sophisticated vocal ability on this her third solo release. Unlike her previous two releases, Life Begins (2007) and Cry For Freedom (2009) which were both almost exclusively orthodox reggae, One Step Closer sees this beautiful songstress fuse other music genres e.g. R'n'B, Soul, Jazz, Dancehall, Hip Hop & Bhangra to create a unique sound which gives credence to the claim that Yaz Alexander is not just a reggae / jazz music singer, rather she is a singer per se.

Since her solo debut in 2007, Yaz Alexander has become a regular fixture on the vibrant summer festival circuits of Europe and the UK and indeed she has also taken her mesmeric stage show as far a field as North America and the Caribbean. In 2007, Yaz was commissioned by an heritage lottery funded project to write an ode to commemorate the bi-centenary of the abolition of the slave trade in Great Britain and the track that she penned, "Cry For Freedom" was subsequently used incidentally in an edition of BBC TV's award winning documentary, Panorama – an episode contemporized by the fact that the subject of the episode was the rise of the now British Prime Minister, David Cameron.

Yaz Alexander is scheduled to be on the W.O.A Jazz Tour this year in India. Stay tuned for more info on this hot new Jazz Sensation right here.
