Poor Yorick

No, I'm not about to start quoting Shakespeare to you... I'm going to introduce you to one of the coolest indie bands that SoCal has to offer.

THIS is Poor Yorick!

Now, if that's not a proper introduction to Poor Yorick, well then, you're reading the wrong blog people!

Poor Yorick is a Los Angeles, CA, USA based indie band led by Rome Balestrieri on vocals and piano and featuring Michael Holowatch on drums, Mars de la Mancha on lead guitar, and David Gielan on guitar/bass/backing vocals.

The best compliment that I think I can pay this awesome band is to not try to group them into one genre or another. As you can see from the video for  Still Not Over You, Poor Yorick can rip it up with the best of them. Give 'em a listen and you'll find jazz influences (Here Again & Kissing You (Des'ree cover)), pop influences (Water and Sky & one of the coolest covers ever recorded, Wicked Game) to alternative (Oblivion) and some good old fashioned alt/rock (Sea of Conundrum).

There is definitely something here for everyone's taste... but why just savor one flavor when you can get the full 7-course meal all at once?

Check out Poor Yorick today, and pick up their new EP Oblivion on iTunes today. Your iPod will be much happier... I know mine is!
