F.F.O: Jorja Smith, Ella Mai, H.E.R

‘YLD is wild’ is the debut album just released from London-based songwriter/producer Geoff Wilkinson from seminal jazz/hip-hop fusion band Us3 and brings the pure, unadultered R&B slickness with silky smooth, sultry sounds that are impossible not to love…

The lead single of the album ‘Give Me Your Love’ is an update to the classic Curtis Mayfield song, whereby the soul of the original is fused with afrobeat-inspired bass and a sprinkle of jazz in a brass accompaniment. The marriage of more traditional R&B with jazz, afrobeat and pop contributes to the innovation of YLD’s music and Geoff’s aim to showcase various underground vocalists in London that have their own individual sounds and styles makes YLD is wild an album that sets apart from others of its kind.

In the album Geoff works alongside 5 soulful female artists (Kelly Agbowu, Liisi LaFontaine, Liz Jai, Robin May and Courtney Bennett), including a guest appearance from NY rapper Akil Dasan, resulting in each of the vocalists bringing something different to the table – a variance that will keep you on your toes track after track.
