Yumi And The Weather is the music project of Brighton based singer, multi-instrumentalist and producer Ruby Taylor. Since having emerged in 2013, she has gigged around the UK at various venues and festivals, and has released numerous EPs and remixes.
Her debut self-titled album received great support from Shaun Keavney, Lauren Laverne, Guy Garvey, Don Letts, Nemone, Chris Hawkins (BBC Radio 6), Radio X's John Kennedy, and was included in Electronic Sound Magazine's top 20 albums of 2018. She is currently signed to Brighton label Small Pond.
With Help Musicians' support I will be able to complete the second album without worrying too much of where the money is now going to come from as in such difficult times of earning due to COVID19.
