Singer-songwriter HEYMUN made waves back in 2013 when she came out tops in the folk/singer-songwriter category at the international Unsigned Only Music competition. Her track, ‘By Sea’, impressed a distinguished panel that included the likes of Iggy Pop, Cyndi Lauper as well as Darryl McDaniels of Run-D.M.C.
While her win garnered her some media attention in her native Malaysia, this young singer-songwriter from Petaling Jaya managed to snag a slot at the CBGB Festival’s ‘New Emerging Artist Showcase’ in New York.
Her latest music video for ‘Youth’ features footage from her most recent New York adventure as well as some snippets of her sojourn into Nashville. Cheerful handclaps and softly cooed oohs in the track’s chorus are elements that add to its pleasingly catchy vibe. But more than anything else, you will likely find yourself charmed by HEYMUN’s down-to-earth songwriting sensibilities.
