Info for Not a Minute Too Late
She is Eric Bibb's daughter and Leon Bibb's granddaughter. With such an upbringing it was only natural for her to become a jazz vocalist in order to carry on this rich family legacy. Whether singing standards or her own delicate compositions, Yana Bibb exudes a likable personality served by a gracious tone of voice and a peerless musicianship.
Her musical instincts are right on target whether she deals with swing or more intimate music. Backed by her father's guitar on 'Oceans' or her grand father's presence on 'Send Love', her voice becomes even more intimate and touching, filled with sincerity and simplicity. No stranger to either jazz, soul, folk, or blues, Yana Bibb's aesthetic seduces on every track of a wonderful album. A real discovery and the evidence that the Bibb name is here to stay.
The making of this record has been a long process. My desire to record and share my music began at the age of 10, after having the opportunity to record my first composition, “You’re My Angel.”
That first song came to be with a lot of help from my dad, and the immense joy I felt singing it and the pride I felt listening back to what we had created, is a feeling that still remains strong in me today. It was the beginning of exploring and discovering my own voice and expression – a lifelong quest.
That exploration has taken me to a few different places around the world and much of that journey is represented on this record. Some tracks were recorded in Stockholm, Sweden, some in New York City, and one in Vancouver, Canada. I have met so many talented musicians who have inspired and influenced me along the way and many have become new friends. Being the Gemini that I am, patience is something I am constantly having to work on, and for my impatient soul, getting this album to you has taken too long. Yet somehow, it’s Not a Minute Too Late!
