Singer-songwriter Yuna has come a long way from being successful in her native Malaysia to signing with the FADER record label in New York and launching her North American career. Her music is gaining plenty of buzz and her first single “Live Your Life” was produced by big name Pharrell Williams. Yuna’s sound is a relaxing and intriguing mix of jazz, pop, and lounge styles with her electric guitar punctuating each song.
Recently, Last.fm was lucky enough to have the up-and-coming musician in their studio to perform some songs and answer a few questions about her music and her career so far. Here’s her performance of the song “Island”. See Last.fm Presents for more live clips and a video of the interview.
