yvette cornelia is a california based musician and songwriter. her latest EP 'open it up' brings an experimental, classically inflected approach to folk/pop. the songs on this EP are lushly orchestrated, often with yvette's violin or vocal harmonies at the front of the deep arrangements.
the melodies are winding and unexpected but they float on top of a jazzy rhythm section. not similar to much. i'm having a hard time summing this release up, it has to speak for itself.
get it here.
