As a young immigrant growing up in northern New South Wales’ backwater life wasn’t easy. Classical guitar came naturally, working his way through the magic of Lennon, Elvis and Richie Valens. Writing his first compositions to suit his older brother’s poetry nurtured a talent for song writing.
Music marched through his teens and to the stage. Turmoil came too; his path took a route through Buddhism and bouts of meditation. Yhan draws on diverse influences from Dylan to Frusciante and represents a new direction of folk.
In 2013 Yhan released his debut EP Sail Home. His new album, Wilderness, is the next major step in this musician’s journey. The title track and ‘El Camino’ are already receiving airplay. Leal resides in the peaceful Bellingen Valley. Career highlights include performing at the 2013 Mullumbimby Music Festival and the 2013 Bellingen River Festival. Yhan will take his new show to the Bello Winter Music Festival in July 2015.
