Red Letter Day (Unplugged)

by Courtney Yasmineh

Courtney Yasmineh, the NYC-based singer, guitarist, songwriter, has made 2015 a year of conquests. With two stellar releases in less than 12 months - the electric and anthemic rock album, Red Letter Day, and its counterpart acoustic (but no less rocking) EP, Red Letter Day Unplugged - along with newfound national radio airplay and multiple tours of the East Coast and MidWest, the stars are beginning to align in her favor. Collaborating again with world-class colleagues Charley Drayton (Grammy nominated producer for Fionna Apple and drummer for the Xpensive Winos) and Minneapolis producer/engineer Rob Genadek (Third Eye Girl, Peter Himmelman, and countless others), Yasmineh's new songs are her most heartfelt to date; smolderning with a blunt honesty that puts emotions on the front burner she delivers them with an unquenchable passion you can't help but hear in every note.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Honesty is a quality getting rarer and rarer in rock and roll, but you can see, hear and believe it in Courtney Yasmineh. The NYC-based singer, guitarist, songwriter draws from a poisoned well that runs deep; harsh reflection, brutal frankness, bittersweet inspiration, brief flights of sexual fantasy and blistering romance, and saving graces.

Imagine a songsmithing family of not-so-evil stylistic sisters comprised of Lucinda Williams, Liz Phair and Alanis Morrisette. Now imagine Courtney as Cinderella in that fairtytale musical equation ... and leaving the ball on her own terms.

Although she's been writing songs and performing for virtually her entire adult life, it's only in the past decade that she's begun to record and release albums and EPs - 7 in all, including two in 2015; Red Letter Day and Red Letter Day Unplugged (released in April and September, respectively). Garnering more acclaim and building a bigger following with each consecutive release and tour, these two new releases have brought a whole new level of national radio exposure.

What makes her body of work so enthralling is the way she subtly weaves her personal narrative into immediately memorable songs whose appeal spans a wide range of ages and musical tastes.

Sans booking agents, managers and a stretchable budget Yasmineh has successfully booked nearly a dozen European tours, countless jaunts across the US, shot many music videos, and garnered radio airplay here and abroad. Her live performances showcase her prowess as a bandleader, and front woman; she's sexy, smart and somehow simultaneously shy and brazen, beckoning the audience to join her for the ride.
