Inspired by Joni Mitchell and Bon Iver, 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 National Folk Festival 2019, Enlighten Festival 2020, Canberra Theatre Centre’s CTC@Home series and Stage 88 Australia Day Concert 2021 alongside James Reyne, Daryl Braithwaite and Kingswood. 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 also supported ARIA & APRA-awarded alt-Country artist Tori Forsyth. In 2020 Kim supported ARIA & APRA winning indie-folk artist Josh Pyke in Canberra.
Kim is currently in preparation for her 2nd EP with grant support from ArtsACT.
Kim’s band members are Tabitha Hart on cello and Jonah Myers on keys.
