Yeahwon Shin

As one of the most in demand session musicians in Korea, Yeahwon Shin has had the opportunity to perform with great musicians such as Kevin Hays, Jeff Ballard, George Garzone, Ben Street, and Egberto Gismonti. Yeahwon is beginning to establish herself as one of the most versatile vocalists on the music scene today. Inspired by the sounds of Brazilian, classical and jazz music, Yeahwon Shin is a new vocal artist with clearly a lot to say.

Yeahwon's musical journey began in the suburbs of Seoul, South Korea where her musical talents first showed at the early age of five. In 1999, although never having taken any formal vocal lessons, Yeahwon applied to the Dong-Duk music university. Kwang Min Kim, a well-known jazz pianist in Korea and also a judge on the audition panel, talked about her on a radio show. He said that when he listened to her, her singing was so beautiful, it brought tears to his eyes.
