yarn. has a distinctly indie rock feel, moving easily between soft and more classic rock sounds. Lead singer, Sophia Calder, uses jazzy improvisation and trades riffs with the lead guitarist to produce a playful, harmonious effect.”
Guitarists Liam Manion and Sawyer Bush began playing together in 2018 in a Vassar College dorm room. The duo performed shows at colleges and open mics around the area before connecting with singer and Vassar a cappella star Sophia Calder. Her voice, reminiscent of neo-jazz artists like Norah Jones and Jorja Smith, presented the missing piece to their puzzle.
By the end of 2020, along with bassist Eden Forbes and drummer Miles Schulman, they established the name yarn. and continued to play shows together, but this time with a fully defined roster. The chemistry immediately clicked, and the band was inspired to take the next step forward with their music. They recorded a series of songs in basements remotely, culminating in their debut EP “I Said Goodbye And Then…” which was released in December 2021 on Spotify.
