Suwon Yim on SoundBetter

Berklee Global Jazz Institute M.M '21

Hello,
I am Suwon from Seoul, South Korea 🇰🇷
I have earned both my Bachelor's & Master's Degree in Jazz Performance at Berklee College of Music with a full scholarship.
I am a pro jazz musician who toured with Ray Brown Jr. Quartet as a pianist in 2019 and also won the John Coltrane Cover Competition held by Pickup Music '19.

I released my first Jazz album called 'When It Falls' [LP] and it was featured in the Korean magazine called 'Jazz People'. Prior to that, I have fronted numerous live Jazz performances in the US, Europe, and Korea which made me grow as a musician.
Not only being a solo Jazz artist, I also have a duo called Fully Bold and we create Hip-hop/neo-soul. In 2020 we debuted via Majestic Casual releasing an [EP] 'Life Needs Haircut' cumulating more than 2M streams on Spotify, Apple Music, and other streaming platforms.

With my non-stop passion for music, I would love to share my talent with you!
I can play on your song, create chords on any given beat, play lead sheets as an accompanist, or copy the song you love. I will make your song sound professional and unique.

Let's start the journey!

    This is my second project with Suwon and I couldn’t be more pleased or impressed. Her passion, professionalism, and musical instincts are the stuff producer’s dreams are made of… or at least this producer!

    Suwon is an amazing talent with prompt, polite, and professional communication.

    With just vocals, scratch piano, and a few notes and references, she produced a beautiful piece of work that was nearly perfect the first time around; and after that, she made adjustments quickly and spot on to the ideas in my head -- dare I say even better!

    This is my third collaboration with Suwon and I am still so delighted.

    This time I was looking for a piano accompaniment for a song that was particularly difficult to sign for a variety singer like me ;-)

    "What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life ?"

    Not only is its accompaniment great but Suwon was kind enough to provide me a version with a "melodic guide".

    For starters let’s talk about her making the cover of GQ magazine! I didn’t find out until we finished the project l, and now I see why. She was phenomenal. My record now features light touches of melodic jazz melodies. I can’t wait to see her on stadium concert stages soon. Cheers to a great record and a wonderful time working together. I look forward to working with you again 💙

    Music first! When you work on a well composed, arranged, performed and well recorded song like this one, mix becomes a "piece of tasty cake". Working on Suwon's project was delightful, and pleasant. Suwon is very professional, an excellent musician and composer. Looking forward to continue working together on beautiful songs like this one.

    Suwon is a wonderful composer. She works incredibly fast and I couldn’t be happier with my piano piece. I will always recommend her.

    Suwon not only quickly understood what I was looking for, she took it to the next level, inspired and creatively. Also, I'm glad I went with her suggestion to record two different instruments.

    This is the second time in a few days that I have asked Suwon for a piano accompaniment to sing over. I am delighted with our collaboration.

    Never two without three ?

    I was looking for a pianist to record some piano accompaniment tracks of songs that I wanted to cover to sing over it. Jazz songs or french songs harmonized in jazz style.

    I was immediately seduced by Suwon's style. A lyrical one suitable for songs. I didn't want something too much cerebral but rather sensitive.

    I choose a song with complex harmonies and a lot of keys changes: la chanson de Maxence (You Must Believe in Spring). Working with was a real pleasure. She perfectly understood what I wanted. What a joy to sing over her piano accompaniment !

    Look forward to the next collaboration...
