Yasmine Giles was born and bred in London and is a professional pianist, songwriter and vocalist. She began playing the piano at the age of three. At a very early age she auditioned for BBC TV’s The Big Time – Pop Singer, and went on to write, play piano and sing the theme tune for BBC 2’s Food and Drink. Yasmine performed at the Budokan in Tokyo with duo Small Talk, and received the prestigious Kawakami Prize at the Yamaha World Popular Song Festival. Her talents also led to her being offered the lead role of Nala in The Lion King in the West End and Los Angeles without audition. Peter Giles was born in Bournemouth and is a bassist, songwriter and vocalist and co-founder of two legendary groups – Giles Giles & Fripp and King Crimson.

From the moment Yasmine & Peter met, they were on a mission – to form their own band and write their own songs. Within two years they had a band that toured for 13 years. All the while they were perfecting their songwriting craft as a team and writing original songs, a rich blend of pop, jazz and latin influences.

In November 2021, they completed their album 'Insights', which is now available for purchase exclusively from  www.planetgiles.com.

"What a beautiful voice - I could sit and listen to Yasmine all night..."

Bruce Oldfield - Fashion Designer

"No frills - but what a voice!
Yasmine sets the tone of a performance on her keyboard.
Great musical feeling, which demonstrates precision and gives colour to the music itself.
Delighted by the sheer perfection of execution and technical mastery."

Pia Graettinger - Badische Zeitung
