YOYA
YOYA
yOya is the project of longtime songwriting partners Alex Pfender and Noah Dietterich. Natives of Corvallis, Ore. and friends since the fifth grade, Pfender and Dietterich grew up to the sound of rain in the fir trees and 'Graceland' on cassette. When the duo moved to California to study music they found themselves semi-consciously absorbing the electronic sounds of the LA scene. What emerged was yOya's unique mix of folk-hearted songs, intricate vocal harmony, gritty synths, and thundering electronic beats. With a full-length album, an EP, and several singles to their name, yOya has toured extensively through the United States, sharing stages with Big Thief, Moses Sumney, Bleachers, Phox, Dawes, RJD2, Avi Buffalo, and many others. They have also made appearances at SXSW and CMJ Music Marathon. The band is currently recording new music to be released later in 2017.
J.E. Sunde
J.E. Sunde is the solo project of Jonathan Sunde. Before striking out on his own, Jon spent years making beautifully unusual music with The Daredevil Christopher Wright. In July, 2014 he released his first solo album, Shapes That Kiss The Lips Of God, with Cartouche Records out of Davenport, IA. On March, 3rd 2017 he released is his sophomore record Now I Feel Adored. Featuring vocals by Monica Martin of Phox, the album is described as “an exercise in careful subtraction....it takes some time to notice how little is going on with the richness of what is heard.”
