This EP features 3 melodic and emotional songs about love, hope and loss written by Kim Yang.
Track by Track rundown:
Ocean Of Mind Set to a melancholic soundtrack that builds to an uplifting crescendo, Ocean of Mind tells a story of struggle and support. It’s a tale about someone overwhelmed with life and drowning in insecurity, who is saved through the love and support of those around them.
Wake Me Up Wake Me Up is a powerful song about the balance between love and lust. Inspired by powerful vocalists and backed by a driving ukulele, Kim tells the story of a couple always on the edge of falling out of love.
Missed Chance After performing on national TV in Taiwan, Kim was trolled online and retreated from the limelight. Years later, Kim received a letter from an adoring fan encouraging her to ignore detractors and embrace her talent. Missed Chance is the deeply personal response to that letter.
Kim Yang: Brave EP Launch
Indie folk singer-songwriter Kim Yang and her debut 5-piece band invite you to the launch of Kim’s 2nd EP, BRAVE, a project partly funded by ArtsACT. Featuring support from Canberra local legend Evan Buckley of The Burley Griffin.
Taiwanese-Australian songstress Kim Yang writes songs that speak from her experiences as a partner, a daughter, a traveller and an insecure soul. Her ethereal blend of sounds balances delicately between vulnerability and power.
In 2020, Kim’s bushfire tribute Garden of Eden was aired on triple J radio and received 4.5 stars from Roots ‘n’ All host, Nkechi Anele, who said: ‘Kim Yang is a force of nature, and she humbles me’. Later that year Kim released her latest single ‘Dominoes', which was premiered on triple J radio's Roots 'n’ All.
Kim recently played a sold-out headline show at Good Folk 2021, and has also performed at the National Folk Festival 2019, Enlighten Festival, and the 2021 Stage88 Australia Day Concert alongside James Reyne, Daryl Braithwaite, Kingswood and Fanny Lumsden. In 2019 Kim went on tour for her debut EP ‘Ocean of Mind' after a sold-out launch. She has supported ARIA & APRA-awarded artists Tori Forsyth, Josh Pyke and Ben Lee on their tours to Canberra.
Usually performing solo, Kim Yang puts together a 5-piece band for this launch. This is a rare opportunity to see Kim and the band bring her songs to life in a live set.

“Kim’s clear tones hit you from the very first note she sings. Her voice reminds me of the timbre of Eva Cassidy mixed with the breathiness of Sarah McLachlan. In a word, beautiful” — Ruth O’Brien, BMA Magazine
