Spotlight on @Ymani Barbee
Ymani Barbee has been a huge part of ATA since day one. Aside from being one of our featured bad ass and beautiful models throughout the site, pretty much all of the article headline images in ATA were brilliantly created by Ymani, in spite of ATA’s sometimes indecipherable vision.
Aside from modelling and graphic arts, Ymani is also a self-produced, singer/song writer with a soulful, haunting voice backed by kick back but bugged out tracks. Check out her tracks on Soundcloud, here. soundcloud.com/yman1
We caught up with Ymani to talk to her about her music and modelling career.
ATA: How long have you been doing your music for?
Ymani: I actually just started in 2017.
ATA: How many tracks have you produced?
Ymani: Three so far: Daydream, Dazed, and Space and Time, all self-produced.
ATA: What is Daydream about?
Ymani: It’s about not getting lost in your own thoughts and in your own head, but rather having awareness of what is surrounding you and enjoying it.
ATA How long did it take to write?
Ymani: A little over an hour for lyrics; however, the track took a few days.
ATA: What did you use?
Ymani: Garage Band
ATA: Do you have any future plans for your music?
Ymani: Not really. At this point, it is just therapeutic, but I would like to do more.
