The Mad Yaks - EP Summer 2005


Feeling a bit camera shy


Literate Country? What at first seems as much an oxymoron as 'Military Intelligence', The Mad Yaks prove that country roots can grow complicated and beautiful things.

Although The Mad Yaks formed in the summer of 2005, Andy, Shawn and Erin have been playing together in Colorado for more than half their lives. During this time the sound has evolved from folk to funk to rock to country and back again. With the addition of Clint Carlson on drums and Dave Drago on bass, the dynamic rhythm section has deepened and expanded The Mad Yaks Sound.

This sound is a combination of rock, country, folk, and other root music. Alternative Americana, Country Rock and Roll.
