After a decade in Minneapolis, recording and self-releasing four albums with an array of all-stars from that city’s illustrious music scene, Chicago native Courtney Yasmineh packed up her guitars and relocated to New York City in August of 2014. She immediately began recording her latest album, Red Letter Day, with Grammy-nominated producer Charley Drayton sitting in on drums and bass and collaborating with Yasmineh and her longtime producer and musical director Rob Genadek. Red Letter Day is the result of the cumulative effect of nine tours of Europe (self-booked), multiple appearances at SXSW, divorce and, most of all, an unquenchable fire driving her to create genuinely smart rock and roll gems. Like any great songs, Yasmineh’s tunes are deeply personal yet they touch on subjects and feelings everyone can relate to.
