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. They certainly never expected to have a hashtag to go with their furore #YellaFever
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 ‘Mad Yella’ style covers to their armoury.
Their first release in January 2019 ‘Sequoia’ was featured by Ronnie Herel of Mi-Soul radio as a #OneToWatch, which encouraged the ‘Yellas’ to release their second original track ‘Lovin’ in March, both tracks receiving regular radio airplay across the UK and Europe.
With more original music to come from their recording sessions at Kent’s Rimshot Production Studio, expect to see Mad Yella in a number of places as they hit the UK scene with appearances at London’s Hideaway, the Margate Soul Festival and Rye Jazz Festival to name a few.
