Biography
In Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on August 13th, 1991 , Yasmin(e) Kiambang was born to Malaysian parents Saleha Kiambang and Darshen Kiambang . 6 months later they moved to New York City, New york and became American citizens May 5th, 1993 . There her parents taught her little Malay , though she was taught to stick to her Muslim beliefs and be gentle . Through the years she always stuck out because of her dress code . " The thing was that I had to keep my hair covered and I couldn't show anything above my elbows and nothing above my knees . That was kind of hard to do considering the new era America was going through in the 2000's . " Though she still made many friends and says she was never bullied to the point where it really got to her , she always had strong feelings about her dresscode . " Everybody knew that only Muslim's really dressed like that and so people immediately knew that about me . It was kind of humiliating . Not having to wear it or keep to my traditions but the fact that everyone knew something so personal about me without me even having to open my mouth . Like I had the Scarlet Letter on me or something . " In her words she said that she lived a pretty normal life . Just the typical story , parents trying their best to make it by and just going to school everyday . Once she turned 18 she graduated and went to college , hopping from diner to diner for work so she could support herself . Once she graduated from NYU ( New York University ) on March 3rd, 2013 , she began working at a coffee house in NYC's Union Square ( New York City's Union Square ) , where there was open mic every Monday and Friday morning . She participated every time , becoming " locally " known . I would come in early just so I could perform the little songs I wrote while trying to make a living off of tips . Everybody enjoyed it and complimented me every now and then . It was honestly the only thing keeping me at that job . One day Pharrell Williams slipped in for some quick coffee and Yasmine waited him . It happened to be Open Mic Monday , so Yasmine politely excused herself and went up to perform . As Yasmine was strumming away on her guitar , he left a big tip and his business card . Yasmine remained unknown as she got in the studio to record until she was announced to be opening for Vara in the Electric Summer tour . On the second day of the tour , she released her Debut A-Side/B-Side single , Proposition .

July 16, 2013

So as everyone has probably heard , I have been in Shelby County Jail for the last 6 days . Lots of rumors have been going around but the truth is : Vara pressed assault charges on me after we had a heated argument , and I threw a book at her bus , which happened to break through the glass and scratch her up a little bit . I was supposed to spend a whole week , but they didn't have space for real inmates , so they cleared the ones on misdemeanor charges out . At the moment I am on a flight to New Orleans so I can catch up with the rest of the tour . I can't tell you guys how excited I am to be back in connection with the real world ! I mean , it was just 6 days , but the thought of being in jail is just scary . As to returning back to the Electric Summer Tour , it has it's pros and cons . I want to say to Memphis that I am really sorry the show got cancelled . It was all on account of my behavior and I do apologize for you all that paid for your tickets and was ready to rock out to some music that night . Hopefully it wont happen again . Though I do want to thank those who supported me through my 6 days of being locked up . Seeing that #FreeYasmine was trending and people were wearing shirts with ' Free Yasmine ' on them , really tickled me . Didn't know I was that important . And I would also like to thank all the progress Proposition has made through you guys . Just checked the charts and saw that it jumped 6 spots ! Can we do that again ;) ? I would also like to take this time to announce a few things . There will be a music video for Proposition . It's just been delayed and all , due to , you know . That's really it for now . I can't wait to see you all tomorrow at the venue !

- Yasmine

Vara: I wouldn't bother coming back, sweetie. We told your bus driver that you wouldn't be back for the rest of the tour, so he left. Guess you'll have no place to stay! :)

Yasmine : Well , I guess .

Yasmine : Omg lol ! The only way we can make that believable is if I get a sharpie and draw a teardrop on my face and start blasting Little Wayne's , ' God Bless Amerika ' all day from my new bus . And I don't think I'm cool enough to start being compared to David Allen Coe lol .

Yesterday was a BLAST ! I had so much fun performing at the iTunes Festival and the aftermath of it all made all of the tears and sweat that were put into making those songs , worth it ! Thank you so much to all of you who came and to all who watched the live stream and left comments and tweeted about it . I really appreciate ! If you haven't already , you can always watch it here .



What was your favorite song ?

Backed up , you've packed up
It's all too heavy
The Sun's up , you need to hurry up
You'll have to leave something

Old mattresses , old mattresses

Beautiful memories start to weigh so much on your back
Left without a sound and a tear , in fear it'll leave a track

Old mattresses , old mattresses
Old mattresses , old mattresses

Beautiful memories will make you go back
Sorrow goodbyes will stop you in your tracks

Leave the old mattresses and stay ahead of the pack
