Brooklyn-based Americana/Alt-Country band Yarn's sound owes as much to Gram Parsons and Earl Scruggs as to Jerry Garcia and Exile On Main Street-era Rolling Stones. Following in a fine tradition that includes forward thinking roots bands like The Flying Burrito Brothers and New Riders of The Purple Sage, Yarn weaves roots music idioms into a fresh sound. Their self-titled debut record reached No. 14 on the AMA and R&R Radio Charts, and ranked No. 79 on the AMA's Top 100 Albums of 2007. Their 2008 follow-up, Empty Pockets, spent months in the top 5 on the AMA chart and received eight first round 2009 Grammy nominations. Yarn is touring intensively and their impressive live shows continue to build the buzz and the fan base fueled by their first four records.
