Yazz (born Yasmin Evans in Shepherd's Bush, London on May 19, 1960) is a British pop singer who remains best known for her successful 1988 dance track, "The Only Way Is Up". After a spell as a catwalk model, she scored a number of club hits after recording with group, Biz, in 1983. Her first commercial success came in early 1988, when she supplied the vocals on Coldcut's "Doctorin' the House". She soon launched a solo career on Big Life records, a label set up by her future husband Jazz Summers, releasing her debut single "The Only Way Is Up" in the summer of 1988.
