You might expect a band that calls itself Yarn to, naturally, tend to spin a yarn or two.
“That’s what we do, we tell stories, live and in the studio, truth and fiction,” singer/songwriter Blake Christiana insists. “We don’t always opt for consistency. There’s a different vibe onstage from what comes through in our recordings. There’s a difference in every show as well, you never know what you’re going to get.”
And this approach is really paying off for Yarn, with a Grammy nomination, nods from the Americana Music Association, and inclusion in the top five on both Radio and Records and the AMA album charts.
In addition to sharing stages with such superstars as Dwight Yoakam, Charlie Daniels, Allison Krauss, Leon Russell, and The Lumineers, Yarn has performed for their growing legions of fans at prestigious venues like Mountain Stage, South by Southwest, the 9:30 Club in D.C, Rhythm and Roots, Meadowgrass, and more!
