"All of my songs are very personal and passionate, lyrically and vocally," says Lindsey Yung. "They address life's basic experiences of love, loss, death, and self-realization."
Yung's musical career can be traced back to when she was a toddler, playing Ngana in a production of South Pacific that ran for two weeks at the Starlight Bowl. "It was a wonderful learning experience, and I made money! That's pretty cool to land a paying gig at five. Of course, I was forced to put the money in an education savings account by my parents."
Later, when not busy earning two degrees from SDSU (in philosophy and religious studies), Yung hit the local coffeehouse scene as a solo acoustic performer. She took a turn toward electronica after hooking up with local production duo Brainfire Technology (Chad Tuthill and Edgar Alminar), her newest CD Fusion furthering her experiment in pastoral computer pastiche. "The music has been called acoustic-electronica, and I don't mind that label at all," she says. "The songs are driven by acoustic guitar parts and accented with electronic elements from keyboards and Korgs."
Yung performs solo (vocals, keyboard), as well as doing shows with a band usually consisting of Jesse West (bass) and Edgar Alminar (keyboards).
