#YADAM is a trilingual, Paris-based, queer artist who was born in Venezuela, raised in the U.S. and then immigrated to France at age 18. He had a musical upbringing – he learned the violin as a child – but it was only when he arrived in Paris five years ago that music really took hold. Witnessing friends’ reactions to him singing, he was inspired to go further, which led him to the small screen as a runner up on “Nouvelle Star” (or French Idol), the French TV talent show.
YADAM channeled all his time and efforts into balancing a full-time job, making the album across Europe in between touring. Along the way he was fortunate to work with some incredible collaborators including GRAMMY award winning Samuel Dixon (Adele, Sia, Christina Aguilera) and Rafa Sardina (Alejandro Sanz, Luis Miguel, Calle 13, Lady Gaga), among others.
The title of YADAM’s debut album ‘Belamor’, due out in late Spring of 2023, is a combination of French and Spanish words meaning ‘Beautiful Love’. While love is a recurring theme throughout the album, what makes it so beautiful is the unique journey YADAM took to get here and the music he made along the way.
From coming of age far away from home, to finding love and losing it again and again, YADAM’s story is one of overcoming obstacles and finding hope in the face of adversity. It’s a story we can all relate to and aspire to at the same time.
