Yvonne Ile | UG Performance Programmes Deputy Programme Leader | ICMP London

Born and raised in London, Yvonne is a Singer, Songwriter and Wordsmith who poetically fuses experiences from her life in London with her deep, African roots.

We are incredibly excited to have her on board as the Programme Leader for our CertHE Performance Programme, where our students learn to strengthen technical skills in performance and developing an extensive understanding of the music industry.

From writing songs and choreographing dances on the playground to graduating with a First Class (Hons) and Master's (Dist.) from the London College of Music, Jael is an Artist whose passion and dedication have led her to become a well-versed and sought-after musician; she spent the majority of her lockdown penning songs for other artists. Dubbed a “vocal acrobat”, Jael is a contralto and has a live performance that needs to be seen to be believed.

Jael has played at more venues than she can count, including The Jazz Cafe and Islington O2. With her music amassing over 40,000 streams on platforms, her single ‘Bulletproof’ was named “Weekly Vibe” (Track of the Week) by BBC Introducing Essex before its release. She has since received an abundance of positive reviews and feedback from blogs and radio stations such as NotJustOk, Irie Magazine and BBC Introducing Essex.

In a world of hyper-sexualised ladies and a growing herd mentality, Jael is an ambassador for individuality and self-love. Her music is a tribute to Black Women, Black People and the ultimate feminine energy. Jael is currently working on her latest project, due to be released in 2023.
