George Yohng is a pianist, composer and singer based in Vienna, Austria. His musical style aims at elegance, naturalness and harmony.
George Yohng cites as main artistic influences Ryuichi Sakamoto, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Claude Debussy, York Bowen, and Joe Hisaishi. His most notable piano compositions to date are “Feeling Worth Living for,” “Morning Rain,” and “Experience of the Unknown,” all of which are available on the album “Experience of the Unknown”.
The artist writes of his inspiration for composition:
“How can you experience the imperceptible? It is like seeing the invisible. My music is an attempt to express the feeling of something new, energetic, dynamic, yet very deep and familiar, which is impossible to describe or feel with our immediate senses. It is my aim to create art that is nourishing and fulfilling, yet 'environmentally friendly' to human senses, soul and mind”.
As well as being an accomplished singer and a piano player, George Yohng holds a BS degree in Computer Science and earns his living designing software virtual musical instruments and professional audio packages.
As of September 2013, the artist is working on the new vocal album, containing a selection of existing standards, as well as new original material.
