Yakul: PPL Momentum Music Fund
Yakul’s sophomore album campaign
Brighton based four-piece Yakul cut an idiosyncratic figure in British music. Marrying introspective emotive lyrics with deep grooves and jazz-infused progressions, they’ve created a sound that is matchless in depth and in its voracious fusion of styles across the musical spectrum.
Yakul have picked up a growing reputation on the live circuit, further cementing their status at the forefront of the international R&B, jazz and soul movement. Yakul’s debut album Rise Indigo racked up over 500 plays on UK radio with support from Gilles Peterson, Jamz Supernova, Jazz FM and more, then going on to tour the UK and sell out their headline debut at the esteemed Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club. Over the past 18 months, the band have ventured to the countryside to focus on writing their next record. Now, backed by the invaluable support of the PPL Momentum Fund, Yakul is primed to fully realise their creative vision and bring their sophomore album into the world.
