    Biography

    Yuna (real name Yunalis Zarai) is a Malaysian alternative and indie pop singer, born on November 14, 1986 in Alor Setar, Malaysia.

    Growing up in Malaysia, Yuna was first inspired by the universal appeal of acts like No Doubt, The Cranberries and Fiona Apple. At the age of 19, while in law school, she picked up a guitar and began to fervently write. She released her self-titled EP in Malaysia in 2008. The single "Deeper Conversation" became a massive success and went on to win the title of Best English Song at the 2009 AIM Awards, Malaysia's national music awards. Yuna swept the ceremony, garnering Best Pop Song and Song of the Year for her Malay song, "Dan Sebenarnya".

    Yuna joined FADER Label in summer 2010 and released her digital EP Decorate in March 2011, which had fans, critics from Billboard, KEXP, The New York Post, and even Russell Simmons himself, who raved, "an amazing new singer,her music is incredible", all instantly praising her talents.

    Also in 2011, SPIN featured Yuna in their Buzzcatcher piece, "Eight Bands You Need to Hear Now" and she gave a stellar performance before a packed audience at MTV Iggy's "Best New Band in the World" concert in New York City. Yuna was a finalist in the "Best New Band in the World" competition and the show aired live on MTV's HD Screen in New York's legendary Times Square and was also streamed live worldwide on MTVIggy.com.

    In January 2012, Yuna released "Live Your Life", the first single from her forthcoming full-length album. It started getting airplay immediately at Sirius – The Loft, KCRW and KROQ. The music video premiered on MTV2 and was featured on the homepage of VEVO.com. Yuna's self-titled album was released on April 24, 2012.
