Wesley Anne, 250 High Street, Northcote, Melbourne
Kim Yang is visiting Wesley Anne in Melbourne on Sunday 22 September as part of her debut EP mini tour.
Kim is a Taiwanese-Australian singer-songwriter known for her ethereal voice and soothing instrument fingerpicking that capture the attention of passers-by. Inspired by female vocalists like Sarah McLachlan, Kina Grannis, First Aid Kit, and Eva Cassidy, Kim’s music is an eclectic blend of folk, pop and blues. Her songs speak from her experiences as a partner, a daughter, a traveller and an insecure soul.
Since developing a passion for music at an early age, Kim has shared her voice everywhere from intimate bookshops to national television. In 2016, driven by a desire to share her stories with the world, Kim picked up her ukulele and started writing songs. She stepped out of her bedroom and into the streets, markets and cafes of Canberra. Since then she has collaborated with renowned local artists and played at major venues in Canberra, around Australia and overseas.
Most recently, Kim played her first festival gig at the April 2019 National Folk Festival and released her debut EP Ocean of Mind in May 2019. Produced by Guy Lilleyman at Amberly Studios, this EP features 3 melodious and emotional songs about love, hope and loss that are very close to her heart. With Kim's ethereal blend of sounds, she creates music that balances delicately between vulnerability and power.
Come and enjoy an intimate night with Kim at the front bar of Wesley Anne, Northcote MEL!
