Srisley (Yae-Seul Kim), a pianist and composer hailing from South Korea, was immersed in a musical milieu from an early age, guided by her family members who were accomplished musicians themselves. At just 11 years old, she made her debut on KBS, showcasing her prodigious talent with Chopin's "Fantasie Impromptu." Throughout her career she has held positions as a music director, performed solo and with ensembles, and mentored students, including those recognized by prestigious institutions like Lakeside School. Her journey continued with the formation of the Srisley Trio, performing at notable events like the Cheongnamdae Jazz Tonic Festival and various jazz bars in Seoul. Inspired by Michel Camilo, she pursued jazz piano, culminating in a master's degree from the University of KyungHee, where her thesis focused on Afro-Cuban piano performance methods in Camilo's music.

In 2020, she released her debut album, followed by another under Universal Music in 2022. Her achievements led her to earn a world tour full scholarship at Berklee College of Music, where she thrived as a performer and composer. She participated in Berklee's institutes and showcased her talents at various events, including the Boston Book Festival and in the Berklee holiday video. Srisley's commitment to musical excellence continues as she explores both traditional and contemporary influences in her compositions, ensuring a lasting impact on the world of music.
