Kim creates music for the soul. With her ethereal blend of sounds, she creates music that balances delicately between vulnerability and power. Genres: Indie folk/blues/pop/Jazz

Inspired by female vocalists like Sarah McLachlan, Kina Grannis, First Aid Kit, Eva Cassidy and Regina Spektor, Kim has brought her melodious and warm voice from her hometown of Taipei to the cafes and streets of Canberra. Her soothing instrument fingerpicking accompanying her singing captures the attention of passers-by.

Playing both ukulele and guitar, Kim is able to switch between music genres to adopt the mood of her audience. Since developing a passion for music at an early age, Kim has shared her voice everywhere from intimate bookshops to national television. In 2009 Kim gained national attention in Taiwan when appearing on one episode of a talent show.


Kim's 2020 single Garden of Eden (a bushfire tribute) received 4.5 stars from Triple J’s Roots ‘n’ All Host, Nkechi Anele, who said: ‘Kim Yang is a force of nature, and she humbles me.'

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, Kingswood and Fanny Lumsden. 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 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 -

"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 -

"Holy crap your voice is AMAZING - spellbinding even. You had me from the first melody and kept me enthralled all the way through to the end." - Nkechi Anele, Triple J unearthed -

Kim was amazing! She wasn't available at the time we randomly stumbled across her at a festival, and she really went out of her way to move her schedules around knowing how much my husband really liked her singing. She was really so accommodating, and we got so much positive feedback about her! In terms of communication in the lead up she responded really quickly. We had her for 2 hours, and she even traveled interstate for us too.

Thanks so much Joanne, it was an unforgettable out-of-town wedding. I'm so glad to have been a part of it!

Kim Yang sang at our wedding last year. From the time of first contact, Kim was professional and personable. We met up initially and it was such a joy to feel so immediately trusting. Kim’s communication was always prompt and she was thoughtful and accommodating by learning some new songs and arranging the set of songs to best match our day. On the day, Kim sang in both a open outdoor space and an enclosed indoor space. Her vocals were so elegant and enjoyable - with many guests so commenting on her talent. We highly recommend Kim. Thank you Kim for being such a joyful part of our day.

Hi Olivia, it was a beautiful evening and I am so glad to be a part of your big day x

My husband and I were married in a simple ceremony, but we wanted it to be special and reflective of us. I heard Kim singing at a local market and her voice drew me instantly. From the moment I requested Kim sing at our wedding to the actual day Kim was flexible and really listened to everything we wanted. Kim sang Lana del Rey's Video Game which was mine and my husband's song when I walked down the aisle. Her voice was so beautiful - everyone commented about how amazing she was. Kim was easy to deal with in a really stressful time, and brought our day to the next level...we can't speak highly enough of her, you would be lucky to have her sing at your wedding.

Kim Yang is such a talented musician and a wonderful person. She played for a few hours on a freezing Canberra day and the cold didn't even phase her! The process of hiring Kim and organising the music was so easy and seamless. I requested two special songs and she learned and played them beautifully. All of my guests complemented her music and asked me where I found her. I'm so glad she was a part of our day!

Thank you Jacqueline and Tom for having me on your special day! I loved seeing beautiful faces under the beautiful winter sun. Congratulations again x
