Glaswegian musician, producer, DJ and curator Rebecca Vasmant
announces her debut LP ‘With Love, From Glasgow’, showcasing the
breadth of the incredible Jazz talent the city has to offer.
Having made a name for herself with a residency at Sub Club, Rebecca
took the lead in curating the first live Jazz showcases at the venue, also
running a popular record fair with the venerable venue and a spot on BBC
Radio Scotland and Worldwide FM.
While promoting and touring in over 22 countries constantly over the last
five years, Rebecca has honed her craft on production projects which
feature world class musicians from The Scottish National Jazz
Orchestra and more, her talents are not only in spinning records, but in
composing, producing and performing. Though known for its rich musical
heritage, Glasgow is not a city perhaps synonymous with Jazz.
Rebecca and her cohort of hand picked musicians set out to change people’s opinions. Rebecca explains: “There is such crazy wealth of talent in this city of
Glasgow and I wanted to make an album that helped to demonstrate this
and which captures my own love and passion for deep and spiritual music. This album highlights just some of the exciting things that are happening
here in Scotland and it’s been a real honour and pleasure working with the
hugely talented musicians who came together to collaborate in such a free
and beautiful way. During the time spent working on this music an
amazing family formed, something for which I am so grateful.”
