Today we’d like to introduce you to Eve-Yasmine.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Eve-Yasmine. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Music was always my first love but I used to be a little shy and had bad stage fright! I’d push myself to audition and perform even though I was so nervous. When I was 17, I met a music producer named Omar El Barkaoui and for me this was the pivotal moment of me pursuing music. Soon after, I auditioned for CK Gospel Choir and toured with them for a couple of years before starting to really build up my solo projects. It’s been a lot of hustling and working so many random jobs to fund my music (working as an air hostess for Emirates, receptionist, presenter, etc.) and I am so grateful for all the people I have met along the way and everything I have learnt so far. Ultimately this whole journey helped me develop my sound and image, now I am so focused and know what I want to achieve.
Now I have just released my debut EP Femme Fatale created in between Los Angeles, London and Paris! Produced by S.B.O and written by myself, I am really proud to finally be able to share this!
The three-track EP includes Femme Fatale, Wild Run and Glow Up which I finished writing and recorded whilst I was in LA. The dreamy project highlights innovative themes of romanticism, woman empowerment and nodes to film figures such as Jessica Rabbit and actors Idris Elba, James Dean.
Femme Fatale – the title track is inspired by James Bond and Paris with Frenglish lyrics, the visuals directed by @mal.visuals were shot in Paris against Eiffel Tower, The River Seine and L’Arc Triumph backdrops.
‘Ms Yasmine is no stranger to traveling across the globe so it only made sense that she took to the city of light for the full video ‘Femme Fatale’ in Paris, directed and filmed by Mal Visuals. Her style and specialism in songwriting has only made us want more; she is one of the only pioneers of multilingual music hitting here in the UK. A revitalizing mix of R&B and Pop to dress this 007/James Bond inspired aesthetic, with a sexy French twist!’ – 3G Treatment
Has it been a smooth road?
I really believe everything happens for a reason. I moved countries, I am no stranger to being broke and spending everything I have for my music projects or working full time and using my holidays to work more. Your self-belief needs to be solid especially when you have negativity or doubts being spoken at you.
I have been in two girl groups and also had solo songs that were never released but everything makes you grow. I have worked a lot on my voice, my writing ability, experimenting with different image styles – hair colours, outfits, branding, etc.! Same for music styles but at the same time I always knew what I connected with the most, I just feel like things are finally aligning more.
I’ve met more people who believe in the vision and have helped me by collaborating. I have been let down and been told promises that haven’t been kept but that’s not gonna stop me from getting to where I want to be! You have to push through.
