Inspired by Joni Mitchell, Bon Iver and Lana Del Rey, Canberra’s indie-folk singer-songwriter Kim Yang writes songs that speak from her experiences as a partner, a woman, a traveller and an insecure soul. Her ethereal sound balances delicately between vulnerability and power.
In early 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’. In late 2020 Kim released her latest single ‘Dominoes’, which was premiered on triple J radio’s Roots ‘n’ All.
Kim performed at the National Folk Festival 2019, Enlighten Festival 2020 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 supported ARIA & APRA-awarded alt-Country artist Tori Forsyth. Kim supported ARIA & APRA winning indie-folk artist Josh Pyke in Canberra in 2020.
Kim’s band members are: Tabitha Hart on cello and Jonah Myers on keys.
