A leading voice of the harp today, performer, composer, and educator Brandee Younger defies genres and labels. Recently nominated for a 2022 Grammy Award for Best Instrumental Composition and NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Album, she has performed and recorded with artists including Pharoah Sanders, Ravi Coltrane, Jack Dejohnette, Charlie Haden, Common, John Legend, The Roots, and Lauryn Hill.
