GIG - Kim Yang 'Brave' EP Tour - Saturday, 2 October 2021 - 8pm-11pm
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.
“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
“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”
— Pam Merrigan, Artistic Director, National Folk Festival 2019
