Yolanda Charles
Yolanda became interested in music when she started learning the recorder and the clarinet at Primary School. She continued with clarinet at secondary school and joined the Steel Band. This was her first experience of playing in a band and she loved it, partly because it also gave her the perfect excuse to miss maths lessons! She attempted to learn the Trumpet and sat through Guitar lessons but didn’t enjoy the preferred method of teaching, eg. bore student to tears. She would jam along to records at home by picking up bass lines instead of practicing Greensleeves. And so began playing electric bass at 15. She went to Islington 6th Form Centre (ISFC) and joined her 1st band formed with guys at the youth club called Emphasis (embarrassing band name confession) a lovers’ rock and soul band. She took a music course and a group of the kids entered in school band competition Rock School. After this short spell Yolanda continued gigging with other bands, including Urban Species. Earlier that year she had met Paul Weller when he was a guest on Saturday Zoo. He later called when he was looking for a new bass player. She went on to tour with him during the Wildwood tour of 1993/4, recorded the single Hung Up and a live album Livewood. She also recorded a few tracks on his Album Stanley Road. After she left the band Yolanda continued to work on various projects including Gota Yashiki’s (Simply Red) solo album where she met husband Miles Bould. She also went on to play for Roddy Frame’s Aztec Camera and recorded bass on the last album Frestonia. The drummer with Aztec was Jeremy Stacey who recommended Yolanda to Guy Chambers when he was looking for a bass player for a few Cathy Dennis tracks. She was 25 and had just had her son Tait, he saw a few studios and gigs before your average baby! In 1997 Yolanda returned to Paul Weller for his Heavy Soul tour, then played bass in Miles’ band Goosebump. The following year Yolanda had her second child Carmen and so spent a lot of time song-writing and laying the foundations for what would come to be an album project years later.
