YVI is a 23 year old singer-songwriter from Zwolle. YVI writes melancholic, storytelling, though
comforting songs about doubt, uncertainty and contentious subjects we have to deal with in todays
day to day life. YVI’s music is inspired by artists like Jeff Buckley, Damien Rice and Elbow.
In December 2015, YVI was awarded with the title ‘Best Singer-Songwriter of the Northern Nether-
lands’, after which he played the support show for The Gospel Sessions and Douwe Bob and the
after show of Blaudzun. In 2017 YVI will record his debut album, together with his band, which will
be released early 2018.
