Who is Azmyl Yunor?

Azmyl Yunor is an independent English and Malay language singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, academic and writer from Malaysia. He is a journalist and filmmaker by training.

His works have ranged from folk-country singer-songwriter styles to experimental guitar improvisations to punk and indie-noise rock, solo and with various bands he has founded and recorded with. All of his solo recordings are released on his own Rapidear label and Troubadours. A former street musician, he is noted for his strong songwriting and lyrics, and laidback on-stage presence yet energetic live shows. He has also composed and collaborated for film, television, theatre, dance and spoken word/poetry productions.

With the release of the country folk-flavored Tenets EP in 2005 to acclaim, he garnered wider attention of the press and established himself as one of the main movers of the burgeoning Malaysian singer-songwriter scene along with the likes of Meor Aziddin Yusof, Pete Teo, Shanon Shah and Shelley Leong. He has also recorded and released lo-fi recordings under the name Thunder Coffee Club. He was voted as one of KLue magazine's '20 Under 40 - Significant & Young Individuals or Collectives' along with the likes of Mawi, Daphne Iking, Tiara Jacquelina, and Amir Muhammad in 2006. His bi-lingual album Warga saw him launch a self-funded 20-month tour to promote it. His latest album Wilayah was recorded with his touring band the Sigarettes.
