Inspiring Mad Yella
When some lads from Kent got together to play some music in 2018, they had no idea what would become of them.
Mad Yella have a history among them through university and playing within other bands. These young and extremely talented musicians have a repertoire that far supersedes their years. Inspired by an endless love of Jazz-Funk, Neo Soul and Rare Groove greats, such as The Crusaders, George Benson and D’Angelo.
Mad Yella have defined a sound of their own as well as adding a few covers to their armoury and have embarked on their first year of new music releases and live performances, growing from a 5 to 8 piece band.
#YellaFever is here to stay..
Their first release ‘Sequoia’ was featured by Ronnie Herel of Mi-Soul radio as a #OneToWatch. This encouraged the ‘Yellas’ to release their second original track ‘Lovin’ in March and both tracks received regular radio airplay across the UK and Europe.
Their third title ‘Being with You’ was playlist by Mi-Soul Radio before it was even finished! That is the level of accolade this wonderful band is receiving. Fresh, new, original and grounded, a recipe for success.
Mad Yella have had a busy inaugural year as they hit the UK scene with panache.
With appearances at London’s Hideaway, the Margate Soul Festival, Rye Jazz Festival, supporting Tony Momrelle and the EFG London Jazz Festival in their performance repertoire, the future is looking bright…. Bright YELLA!
