Yuna began experimenting with music at the age of 14. Gaining confidence and a steady online following via the social network MySpace, Yuna performed her first live gig in Malaysia at the age of 19. Known for her guitar and ukulele playing abilities, Yuna did not pick up these instruments until her late teens. Despite knowing music was her passion and touring all over Malaysia, Yuna decided to simultaneously attend university and obtained a bachelor’s degree in Legal Studies in 2009.
After entering the Malaysian talent competition “One In A Million”, Yuna’s star really began to rise and the singer was eventually sought out by management company Indie-Pop. Soon after signing with this management company, Yuna signed a record deal with FADER Label in 2011. That same year, Yuna released her debut EP on the label, “Decorate”, and the release caught the attention of musicians Farhan Fadzlishah, Efry Arwis and Adil Ali, who would eventually become part of her band.
In 2012, Yuna released the single “Live Your Life”, which was produced by Pharrell Williams. The single attracted extensive critical acclaim and hit the number 37 spot on the US Heatseekers chart. The single came from Yuna’s self-titled 2012 album, which went to number 23 on the US Heatseekers chart.
Industry insiders such as Grammy Award-winning producer David Foster have touted Yuna as an artist to watch, and her fan base has exploded both in Malaysia and the US. Yuna’s extensive and versatile sound, which she claims is inspired by artists such as Feist, Bob Dylan and Coldplay, will, without doubt, continue to serve her well for years to come.
