Riding an intrepid wave of charismatic indie rock throughout the musical stratosphere, The Yarrow is proving themselves to be one of Utah’s hottest commodities around. This six piece powerhouse isn’t only garnering the attention of press throughout their local community, but drawing statewide support from radio, television, and newspapers. As if this weren’t enough, the band is utilizing their socially conscious musical skills to work with charities and make significant differences throughout their community.
Remaining completely independent in their approach to music, while crafting inspired, thoughtful songs, The Yarrow have focused on developing a concrete solid fan base in their hometown of Provo. The group’s intelligent and talented lineup consists of Mitch Mallory (lead guitar, vocals), Jeff Harris (keyboard, violin), Morgan Williams (rhythm guitar), Kyle Owen (bass), Thomas Knight (drums, percussion), and Nicholas Dudoich (horns, arrangements). By combining traditional musical elements with classical training on horns and strings, The Yarrow is quickly establishing themselves as a versatile, captivating act within the indie rock genre.
In a complete departure from many other bands and artists within the music industry, this Utah outfit has donated all of their profits to a local charity. The Yarrow’s chosen target is Community Action Services and Food Bank in Provo, a non-profit organization which aims to assist in the fight against nearby poverty by providing food and other support programs for citizens in need. With over 100 live performances under their belt, and an upcoming EP in the works, Mallory and company are influencing their community in multiple areas at once.
The Yarrow’s music and social activity quickly attracted positive media attention, as Utah’s top three newspapers (The Salt Lake Tribune, Deseret News, Daily Herald) all covered the group’s activities, along with a host of other magazines. They continued to spread like wildfire, making live television appearances on KUTV in Salt Lake City, and eventually KXLU in Los Angeles.
With a wide spectrum of influences ranging from Bob Dylan and Radiohead to Arcade Fire and The Doors, their music continues to impress fans around the country. A music video for “Every Day is the Hardest, Every Night is the Longest” was recently released, and the band is working tirelessly on their debut EP, Favor Fire, which they hope to release during the winter of 2010. Look for more live performances around the greater Salt Lake City area soon, and keep up with all things The Yarrow on their official Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace pages.
