Dark & Ominous at times while always maintain a glimmer of hope. This statement seems to make for the most accurate description of rising star Yasmeen's debut album in which Yasmeen's soaring vocal ability shines in what is best described as"Moody Pop Music." Early on, 23-year-old Yasmeen struggled to find out who she was musically. Asking herself; is it possible to make a classic pop record that could stand up against what is today considered a hit? Was it necessary to make music that lacked any real substance for fear it would not be accepted at Top 40 radio? Was it possible to be sexy without having to compromise who you stand for as a person? Trying to find the answer, Yasmeen set out on her journey armed with nothing more than a pen and notebook full of emotion. Detroit born and Phoenix raised, Yasmeen found solace in the Church at a young age and along with her faith, her strong Middle Eastern family values have provided the well needed guidance to stay true to herself in todays ever changing music industry. Yasmeen's honesty through her songwriting and willingness to leave on display her vulnerability as a young woman growing up in todays society separates this rising star from most other artists in her genre.
