It came so naturally that he instantly knew it would become his lifelong passion. He is constantly pushing his boundaries to create new styles.
Yon’s style of music can be described as indie-pop, at times led by acoustic instruments. His early childhood led to influences from Leonard Cohen, the Beatles and Muse. His music can even be described as a combination of the singer and the bands, which can be seen in My Fire, which has the intimate narrative low voice singing of Leonard Cohen, a sense of orchestral production mixed with rock and blues chord progressions that Muse uses, and the ear-friendly, pop melodies that made the Beatles the greatest band of all-time.
My Fire is a song that Yon wrote at a time where he found himself struggling to get any traction in the music business. He translated those feelings into words, to create some sort of support for himself. My Fire, is a song designed to warm your insides. Initially, it was a song that he intended to keep for himself, but decided to release it after receiving a multitude of positive feedback.
