Everything You Need to Know About Actress and 'Old Her' Singer-Songwriter YDE

If you haven't been keeping a close eye YDE's new music releases this year, you're seriously missing out.

The Australian-born singer-songwriter and actress has been the force behind some of our favorite songs of the summer, with a voice just as powerful as the message within her words. Last month's "Old Her," was a stunning track about strength in change and finding the power within yourself, while "People Can Change" is a raw ballad full of yearning for a better, kinder world, with the music video showing YDE staring right into the viewers' souls. YDE has some even more exciting things coming this summer—and here's everything we learned about her as our latest Woman Crush Wednesday.
