Alicyn Yaffee is a rare bird among young guitar players. She has a soulful style, emphasizing tone and feel over flashy technique, while at the same time possessing considerable harmonic knowledge and a good deal of prowess on the fretboard.
Alicyn wrote, sang and played guitar on every song of “Someone Else,” her debut solo album. Recorded and mixed by Josh Connolly and produced by Benny Rietveld, the album features Cindy Blackman Santana, Pepe Jimenez, Jeff Cressman and Ronnie Foster. Wooing listeners with her lush vocals and passionate guitar work, Chris Spector of Midwest Record wrote of Alicyn’s debut album, “a Diverse outing with energy and ideas to spare… Well done.”
