Yoo Soo started hitting and strumming all sorts of musical instruments since he was a kid. At 6 years old, he started with classical piano and has since picked up the guitar, bass, drums, viola, and violin. By 16, he got his first mixer and now produces, mixes, programs, and engineers all of his music.
By way of his continuous curiosity of different instruments and recording, Yoo Soo has been commended for his strength in versatility. Each genre he dives into – whether it’s rock, pop, classical, or electronic – has been done with precision and quality.
With a classical background and music minor from the University of Illinois, his knowledge of music, theory, instrumentation, and recording has also brought him praise as a strong communicator. The artists he collaborates with believe that he is able to bring out their ideas into its strongest, most inspired forms.
Yoo Soo is also the singer-songwriter and guitarist for the indie rock band Hemmingbirds. He and his band have been featured in NPR, Paste Magazine, Alternative Press and charted #47 on CMJ. His work has been featured with Bing, Nissan, BMW, HP, and Exxon Mobil among others.
