Born with an unusual name eclipsed only by her talent, Yewande (ye-wan-day) has been recognized as one of the most sought after independent artists in the world. After nearly a 5 year hiatus from the music industry, she's back to finish telling her story on her debut album "Rebirth". As Phoenix Records' "First Lady of Alternative Soul", her songs still speak unapologetic truths about issues that many artists shy away from - poverty, war, race - and with with powerhouse vocals that hearken to the days of Tina Turner and Pat Benatar, she'll make you a believer!
One part storyteller, two parts live band with the angst of Rock, a dash of Hip-Hop and a whole lot of Soul, "Rebirth" is like a carefully scored soundtrack that embodies a lioness reborn. Listeners may wonder what inspires this artist, activist and honorary U. S. Cultural Ambassador who also devotes much of her time to lecturing and empowering vulnerable youth (www.changerocksfoundation.com). Is it faith? Ambition? The music? Maybe it's simply her Yoruba birth name, which means "reincarmation of mother", that foretold this story long before her journey began.
