Wynnm takes you to the moon and back
Though born amidst the sands and sunburnt rock faces of the Sonoran Desert in the Southwestern United States to an amateur harmonica player father and a first-generation Korean mother, Wynnm’s dark notes and honey-throated tones draw from experiences far beyond her landscape, circumstance, and family myths of origin. CD’s like Simon and Garfunkel, Bob Dylan, Moby, The Doors, and Creedence Clearwater Revival spun in the family car on long road trips. She came of age with a love for bass beats and albums by powerful female vocalists like Annie Lennox, Portishead, and Fiona Apple.
Wynnm’s quicksilver sound is an elegant amalgamation of smooth folk and vital bass. Her music emerges from the dusty mirages of Arizona and the private mountains of Idaho but it cycles to the electronic beats of her current residency in Amsterdam.
Kicking off 2020 with a lasting impression, Wynnm presents her single Fire on the Moon: starting off gently with dreamy reverberated guitars supporting her angelic vocals, downtempo beats are added after 2 minutes to complete the overall feeling of synesthesia!
Wynnm on Fire On The Moon:
"I am a cheater. So are you. We all are, every once in a while. This song brings me back to that first moment of disbelief. The first landing in Amsterdam."
Penned in the first months of Wynnm’s residence, Fire on the Moon tells the truth of looking into the eyes of your companion - their eyes hopeful, your eyes bloodshot - between them is the truth that starts and ends the race.
Wynnm's breakout EP is set to be released this summer.
