YAS - indie / electronic music artist from Los Angeles, United States.
Los Angeles-based YAS is a songwriter, composer and producer that mixes ethereal pop-electronic sounds with hints of contemporary R&B resulting in intimately atmospheric songs. Her new track "Caroline", is a manifestation of childhood fears and insecurities that we struggle to let go of as adults.
YAS is a classically trained violinist-vocalist, songwriter, composer and producer. Picking up
the violin at age 6, she has toured the world performing classical repertoire with symphony
orchestras since 16. Today, she regularly writes, arranges, and records strings for major
artists and producers like ASAP Rocky, The Game, Big Sean, Lil Nas X, Travis Barker,
Desiigner, Sabrina Claudio, Vic Mensa, San Holo, Mike Dean, NO-ID, and Charlie Heat.
Last year, she got credited on two Kanye West produced albums, Teyana Taylor’s NTSE
and NAS’s NASIR. She has also performed the Grammys with Shawn Mendes and Miley
Cyrus as well as joined GRYFFIN on stage at the 2019 Coachella Music Festival. Last year,
she debuted her own ethereal pop-electronic sound with hints of contemporary R&B. Her
songs have garnered millions of plays. She also hates writing bios in the third person.
