Expressive vocals, a soothing piano style, and musical influences ranging from Sarah MacLachlan to Sarah Vaughn. Yvette has an intimate rapport with the audience that is refreshingly sincere and touching, as well as are her songs of love and life.

Biography

Born June 22, in a rural South Georgia town, Yvette's childhood home was located directly across the street from the local honky-Tonk and pool hall, where every evening, starting about five o'clock, she would hear country and western, and other popular music styles of the day leaping from the jukebox within. So the dream began. At an early age she began to imitate many of the singers and practicing stage routines. Yvette started performing for friends and family members alike. Soon after she began singing in her church, local talent contest, school chorus, weddings and private parties. While developing a love for piano, Yvette found she had an aptitude for composing songs.

As was the fashion for young girls in her town at the time, Yvette married and began a family, putting away, but never forgetting, her dreams of, some day, recording and performing her own songs.

Many years passed before Yvette once again had the chance to pursue her dreams. And so, in 2002, with home made and children raised, she headed to the woodshed to polish her piano and vocal skills. Nearly a year later, she formed the "Intrepid Souls" with two other likeminded and gifted songwriters. Taking a hiatus from the "Souls" in 2004, she spent the last year on an internationally reaching tour singing with the Celtic rock band "Keltic Kudzu".

Since then Yvette has devoted much of her time to working on her own solo project, with a CD expected to be released in March 2006.

In December of 2005 Yvette started bringing other members into the circle of her music.
It has been exciting to see such a talented group of people work so well together and as a whole the band looks forward to many great successes in the future.

Lyrics

"Far Away"

Written By: Yvette Tilton

“Far Away”

Far away from here, I won’t be coming back for more, ‘cause I know
there is a place for me.

I didn’t sleep again last night; all we do is fuss and fight; what happened to the friends we used to be.
Was it just some kind of fairytale that turned into a living hell?
Oh Lord, I pray I’ll find my destiny.

Far away from here, I won’t be coming back for more, ‘cause I know there is a place for me.
Far away from here, I feel the wind beneath my wings. You can stay, ‘cause I’ll be far away…from here…

The time has come for a change of plan, a journey to some foreign land, where I know something better waits for me.
So, I packed my bags, set them by the door,
Slung your keys across the floor,
And when you return that’s all you’ll see…Because I’ll be…

Far away from here, I won’t be coming back for more, ‘cause I know there is a place for me.
Far away from here, I feel the wind beneath my wings. You can stay,
‘cause I’ll be far away…from here…
