Simon Yu

Music Production

Simon C.F. Yu is a New York City-based director, editor, photographer, and musician who has produced hundreds of videos for musicians since 2010. His passion for music and video began early, as he was born into a family of musicians and film directors in Hong Kong. This early immersion in art inspired him to become a specialist working in both fields.

As a musician, he has toured with hip-hop legend Lauryn Hill as lead guitarist, performed with well-known Chinese artist Eric Mo, led his own band—the Exotic Experiment and r.O.T.i.—released three albums and performed around the world. As a filmmaker, he has worked with Grammy-winning artists Snarky Puppy, Terri Lyne Carrington, Steven Feifke, and many more on their music videos. Simon also directed and edited Rock and Roll Hall of Famer David Crosby’s Lighthouse Band Live at The Capitol Theater DVD. His work has been seen on networks like HBO Latino, and shows like The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Late Night With Seth Meyers, and NYC Life.

Yu is currently a faculty member and the head of video service at Power Station at BerkleeNYC.
