About The Artist
Yea-Ming Chen is a San Francisco-based singer-songwriter delivering a pure and simple indie country sound with heartfelt and sincere meaning. Her low, dusky tones recall ‘60s German singer Nico, although Chen her early inspirations were pop punk indie bands like Mr. T. Experience, The Queers and Dressy Bessy. From them she learned the power of a simple song, while learning from her favourite Fleetwood Mac album, Rumours (after which she named her band), that beautiful songs come about because of life’s difficulties and complexities. A songwriter for 15 years, Chen has learned from experience that a broken heart is the best for inspiration. Having studied piano from age seven, she pursued music at UC Berkley, but left the program after finding it to be too academic. Picking up the guitar instead, she became more open to songwriting.
