Just two years later, Yim was testing her vocal mettle through an obsession with opera, learning arias from a voice coach. At age 10, her parents put a guitar in her hands, which prompted her to start composing songs. (Fittingly, she named one of her first ones Free.). Becoming a musician has always been more fate than a pipe dream for the Oahu, Hawaii, native. All of the above highlights that Yim is a bit of a natural, yet her rare brilliance actually lies in the empathy that underlies these ambitions. At an age when she should be the most self absorbed, Yim can be found contemplating the human experience around her. Although some of my songs were written for other people, my personal pain is found throughout most my music. Lifes lessons Ive learned, she says. I write them to make people feel better, to give them a voice, to let them know they are not alone in their experience, and that I can understand their pain too. If theres a theme to her debut collections of music, she says, Its just about recovering, living your best life. This authenticity convinced Ryan Hadlock (Lumineers, Vance Joy, Brandie Carlile, etc) to produce 6 songs, artist/ producer SYML has also jumped on board to produce 2 songs, and Johnny Helm has produced 1 song, all of which will be featured in her collections. Still in high school, Yim relocated to a hamlet near Seattle for three weeks. She was in her element: Bear Creek Studio is a converted barn nestled in nature (10 acres of woods, to be specific). That experience was probably the best three weeks of my life, she says. It was crazy to see my songs go from a version I recorded in my bedroom and bathroom to these crazy-amazing pieces, she says.
