Brandee Younger

Happening in Judson’s Live – Dr. Phillips Center’s newest and most intimate venue. Inspired by the world’s legendary listening rooms, Judson’s Live includes a 90-minute experience with a 50-minute performance. Enjoy world-class cocktails and small plates while you’re here. The atmosphere is low-key, highly creative and always with a stylish slant.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

The sonically innovative harpist Brandee Younger is revolutionizing harp for the digital era. Over the past fifteen years, she’s worked relentlessly to push boundaries and limitations for harpists. In 2022, she made history by becoming the first Black woman to be nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Instrumental Composition. That same year, she was also nominated for an NAACP Image Award.

Ever-expanding as an artist, she’s worked with cultural icons including Common, Lauryn Hill, John Legend, and Moses Sumney. Her current album, Brand New Life builds on her already rich oeuvre, and cements the harp’s place in pop culture. As the title of the album suggests, Brand New Life is about forging new paths – artistic, personal, political and spiritual. Here, Younger salutes her musical foremother, the trailblazing harpist Dorothy Ashby, while also speaking to the sentiments of more recent generations.
