Indie folk singer-songwriter 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.

Her latest single Garden of Eden was aired on triple J radio on 27 May 2020 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’.Kim recently performed at the National Folk Festival 2019 (as a featured ACT artist), Enlighten Festival 2020, Live in Ya Lounge and Canberra Theatre Centre’s CTC@Home series during COVID.

Kim’s actively involved in the ACT music community; she organised the International Women's Day Concert 2020, gathering female musicians of Canberra and the general public. Kim shares her musical talent with bands such as Muddy Wolfe and Iboga Gazebo. In 2019 Kim went on tour for her debut EP Ocean of Mind after a sold-out EP launch. She has also supported ARIA and APRA-awarded artists, Tori Forsyth and Josh Pyke, on their tours in Canberra.


“I used to be a shy person, music and song-writing helped me to express my feelings. My mission is to encourage all people to be comfortable with themselves, and to be confident enough to embrace their passions and share their own stories.”  (Kim Yang)

Kim is hungry for finding her own audience and showcasing her work at festivals and national radios in the coming years.

Quotes

Breathe taking; I felt like Kim had grabbed me by the hand and carried me through an amazing secret garden. There is a stillness in this much like walking through a forest, aware of how small we are in comparison to nature. It's humbling. Kim Yang is a force of nature, and she humbles me.”

Nkechi Anele, Triple J unearthed

Kim Yang creates music for the soul. With her ethereal blend of sounds, she creates music that balances delicately between vulnerability and power. It feels simultaneously grounded and exploratory; it’s rooted in acoustic folk, but reaches far wider...”

Happy Mag, Sydney

Kim Yang is an outstanding singer/songwriter who bridges cultures with songs about her experiences in both Taiwan and Australia. Kim made her first appearance at the National Folk Festival in 2019 exciting and engaging audiences with her fresh and honest style. I’m sure this will be the first of many”
