Where The Yard Used To Be


Feeling a bit camera shy


When Shaun McGyver and Tyler Priest first met in Chicago Illinois, they knew they were meant to play music together. After performing and writing for over a year, they felt something was missing. They turned to friend, and fellow Chicago musician, Eli Taber, who brought his blues-infused style into the fold. After performing together for several months, they felt it was time to add another component to the group, tapping long-time friend of Tyler, Kwame Martin. Together they found the sound they had been looking for, and began playing around the city on a regular basis. They found the answer to that problem of a regular bassist; Thomas Gumbel.
