Album Notes
*A talent worthy of the designation of world musician.--Village Voice, NYC
“HYIM is a formidable talent…spellbinding.” –San Francisco Chronicle
"Pretty as hell. Thoroughly uplifting." --The East Bay Express
“HYIM's music holds a rare gravity, and it is clear that he possesses a grand vision.”
--Relix Magazine

HYIM’s uplifting pop/rock, world-fusion music has been the vehicle for his positive vibe. But HYIM's newest CD, "Love Songs in Times of War I," shines light on a slower, honest and more raw side of HYIM's breadth of talent. This collection of ballads is powerful and stripped down to its essentials: his passionate piano playing and his sultry voice, as heard on the two lead singles "Sing This For You" and "A Pretty Song About Death."

HYIM has been known for his body-moving big-band performances and upbeat international flavor (if you were there for his show at the 60th annual S.F. Stern Grove Festival performance you know). Appropriately, HYIM has been dubbed the “Eclectic Maestro.” Born in San Francisco and raised in Oakland, Ca, HYIM is a highly praised, acclaimed singer, song-writer, producer, pianist, performer, poet, and activist. HYIM has been called the next generation's music "fusionisto." HYIM began playing piano since the age of three, has studied sitar in India, clave in Cuba, produced hip-hop tracks, studied classical guitar in New Zealand, Turkish rhythms, Persian poetry, the Torah, and whom critics say has "the voice of a young Sting."

Yet while “Love Songs in Times of War I” has elements of his broad palette, this new project is a return to his roots. This album has been in the making for over 10 years and has only come to light after his mother’s recent passing, loosing her only a few months ago to cancer. Yes, tragedy and resilience in the face of adversity is something this artist has not just contemplated, but has lived. HYIM’s father, who started teaching him piano at the age of three, was shot and killed when HYIM was only ten years old. It is this tragic moment that helped inspire HYIM to create such powerful, visionary music. It is this tragedy that help give birth to this spiritual young man.

HYIM played piano on his father’s piano since he was a toddler. Here, HYIM learned to play quietly and soothingly so as not to awaken his dad. One early morning, HYIM was playing and heard a sound behind him. It was his father. His father was weeping and simply said, “That’s beautiful. Boy, keep playing on.” You can hear this story retold in HYIM’s new song “Fatherless Son.”

When you see him perform, this world-traveled singer-songwriter makes mind-blowing live loops on percussion instruments (congas, shakers, beat-boxing, etc) and his guitar and plays left-handed bass as well as right hand keys while he sings his songs.

However, and without a doubt, it is the piano, his original passion and for which Yamaha sponsored HYIM, that is the foundation of this artist’s gift. With a look compared to a Harry Connick Jr., a voice compared to Sting and a sound akin to a new-school Peter Gabriel, Beck, Manu Chao, and Coldplay, HYIM clearly brings the uplifting vibes to the masses through recordings and his epic live shows.

Most of his life was spent with his mother and step-father in Oakland California, and HYIM’s diverse musical influences, like the diversity of “The Town”, include Bob Marley, Beck, Peter Gabriel, John Coltrain, Led Zeppelin, Chopin, 2Pac, Nina Simone, Bob Dylan, A Tribe Called Quest, Fela Kuti, Eddie Palmieri, Chris Martin/Coldplay and of course, his Mom (a folk singer), his Dad (a pianist) and his step-father (a jazz flute player).

HYIM is a healer through and through, as he holds both a Masters in Psychology doing work with youth in numerous settings (juvenile hall, foster care, addiction, etc) and is certified as a Reiki practitioner doing body and energy work on those in need. When not healing others behind the scenes or during a live show, HYIM is a producer, activist and continues to write and record his music to share with the world. www.hyimvibe.com www.facebook.com/HYIM.MUSIC
