A Bud Has Bloomed EP

This coming weekend represents a milestone in the development of & Yet’s prowess. Dane, Nathaniel and Jonathan will be entering the recording studio to build the rhythmic foundation of our introductory six-song EP: A Bud Has Bloomed.

Some may say we’re long overdo. Dane Ueland’s song-writing has been begging for quality recording for many years and our current orchestration has been in development for over a year. But & Yet has continued to bide its time. This is not something we take lightly. These songs and the concept of this record have grown and evolved towards maturity for as long as necessary and never has it crossed a mind to record pre-mature songs poorly just to have a product in hand. No, the time has come because the moment is right.

A Bud Has Bloomed will feature:

Talkeetna

The Spins

A Rat in the Rafters

& Yet

Into The Teeth

A Bud Has Bloomed

(not necessarily in that order)

We are eager to cement the rhythmic sections of these songs this week and will cut no corners in the layering of the complex parts that define & Yet’s intimate delicacy and dynamic intensity. Though we’re not yet sure on our release date, we’ll be thrilled to have a record to offer you, the fan, early next year.

SSG Music promotes TONIGHT’s show at the Triple Door, Seattle

We’ve received a very kind promotional write-up on ssgmusic.com regarding our show with Shannon Stephens at the Triple Door tonight in Seattle.

“J. Wong is presenting the second of two singer/songwriter showcases tonight, this time with the lovely Shannon Stephens, a Seattle favorite who released her fantastic third album, Pull It Together, this year, which is a combination of nearly two decades worth of experiences and musical adventurism – leading her to a fuller sound. Pull It Together is said to “represents a leap in confidence and songcraft for Stephens. Greater maturity has brought a both a looser, louder style and a more sharply focused worldview.“ With her on stage will be & Yet, a folk-experimental band combining careful harmonies and string-led deliveries. Tomo Nakayama (of Grand Hallway, Gold Leaves) will also take the stage with solo work of his own, and of course, J. Wong, will grace the stage as well. The show is a steal as a singer/songwriter showcase for only $8 and gives you a glimpse into some of the best our local music scene has to offer.”

Follow the link to whet your pallet with Shannon Stephens’ Video “Care For You” and don’t miss tonight’s show.

Capo: DIY

Sometimes all of our capos go AWOL at the same time… This calls for some ingenuity.
