Jasmine Kara was born 1988 in a small Swedish town to an Iranian father and a Swedish mother. Even as a little girl she knew that music was her calling. Jasmine started performing at talent shows and took every chance she could get to get up on the stage.
When Jasmine arrived in New York she immediately knew she had come home. The city’s music scene in general and it’s jazz, blues and R&B clubs in particular made her realize that this was where she belonged. She started performing all over town and took every chance she could get to sing to anyone who’d listen. Gradually she started noticing how her powerful voice could move her audience, making her even more certain that this was what she needed to do for the rest of her life. However, that dream of a recording contract kept eluding her, despite promises and close calls.
Eventually she was picked up by new indepenent label Tri-Sound. One of it’s founders was legendary record man Marshall Chess, who ended up as Jasmine’s Executive Producer on her debut album ”Blues Ain’t Nothing But A Good Woman Gone Bad”. A collection of classic old school blues and R&B-numbers, but with Jasmine’s trade remarkable voice, the album was recorded during 48 hours in the well-renowned Cosmos Studio in Stockholm, Sweden for a 2010 summer release.
