Bio

Singer/songwriter Yasmin Tayeby spent the first 18 years of her life in Egypt. During this time, she discovered her passion for music. What started off as just learning the piano, soon became voice, violin, and guitar as well. By the age of 13, Yasmin was already writing her first few songs for voice and guitar.

In her middle and high school years, Yasmin attended numerous international music festivals, and received a number of awards for all of the afore mentioned instruments. By 2006, Yasmin had received a scholarship to attend the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, and began her college career.

In Yasmin's freshman year, she was invited to play for the Vermont congressman, Peter Welch's birthday party, where she performed Pink's "Dear Mr. President." She earned rave reviews, and a personal invitation from the congressman to play any of his future events. She also found recognition in her hometown of Cairo, where Nile FM, Egypt's biggest radio station, showcased her song 'Jane and John Doe' for 2 months as a Homegrown Talent. A few months later, she was invited by the station to play at the closing ceremony of the world famous Pharaoh's Rally, which took place at the Pyramids of Giza.

During her junior year Grammy award winning producers Will Ackerman and Corin Nelsen opted to produce Yasmin's first EP. The record consists of Yasmin on vocals and piano, the world famous bassist T Bone Wolk (best known for work with Carly Simon and Hall and Oates) on bass, guitar, and accordion, Grammy award winning cellist Eugene Friesen of the 'Paul Winter Consort,' and the prestigious Jeff Haynes (known for work with Cassandra Wilson) on percussion. The EP is now available for purchase on Itunes.

Yasmin has performed at many venues around the US and Egypt, including South by Southwest 2010 in Austin, the SOS Music Festival, and Live! Music Festival. Notable accolades include making the Top 25 of 2010 on indie-music.com, being nominated for a Hollywood Music in Media Award, a national radio campaign with heavy weights M:M Music, and much more.

On April 19th 2011, Yasmin was slated to open for Maroon 5 in Cairo, Egypt. Unfortunately, the concert was postponed due to the political climate.
