Based in Western Sydney, Yawdoesitall is a talented Ghanian-Australian artist whose experimental, progressive hip hop fuses together a plethora of genres. Combining pretty instruments with more eclectic sounds, his music is filled with bright energy, intricate production and witty lyricism.
“Making music is one of the only times when I feel honest and free.”
As part of #TheBIGSOUND50, Yaw is “looking forward to connecting with a wider audience and people who need to hear this piece of art I’ve put together.”
“I think BIGSOUND opens the door for both industry and fans to connect to artists they'll cherish for a lifetime. It means a lot to be part of BIGSOUND, as this has been a huge goal of mine.”
Yawdoesitall dreams of shaking the world with his art, playing the festival stages he’s seen host his favourite musicians. “I love performance. Watching artists like Travis Scott and Tyler the Creator move crowds with songs they wrote and made in their bedroom drove me to [pursue my own dream]... In 10 years time, I see myself on stage with [them], doing what I love, with my #1 singles played all over the world.”
During 2020, music allowed Yaw to touch base with what made him fall in love in the first place, spending time perfecting his craft. “Music has been so healing during these times. I hope the general public show more respect to artists and creatives now, as we’ve been some of the most essential people on Earth this year.”
