WATCH | Montreal Newcomer Qi Yama Releases Visuals For His Single "Code"
Discover this new artist out of Montreal named Qi Yama.
This singer/songwriter has a wide range of vocal abilities, taking influences from old-school to new-school cats and putting his own touch to it.
He has been quietly working away in the city the past couple years, while working closely with local artists such as Edwin Raphael, Adhoc, Nectar, sol.Evol and the entire KAJ Collective.
He's a self-taugh musician and producer and writes all of his music. This multi-faceted artist explores storytelling through the nuances and subtleties of the relationships and moments that occur between us. He finds the simplicity of music the most appealing: to be able to tell deep, intricate and emotional stories without saying too much, and leaving most of it to the imagination of the listener.
His latest project Wilt is an attempt to understand the complexity of the mind, our controlling emotions and mental health.
Although it may seem like a story about love, it’s really a story about depression.
How despite having something immeasurably beautiful to offer to the world, that same thing, if left uncultivated, may wilt away.
