The best kept secret in music


"Sawing Guitars Backed By Pumping Bass and Strong Drums."

"The first track, “Cross the Line,” starts with a moody drum and bass line, shortly joined by a solo guitar ringing out a beautiful, melancholy melody...The second track, “Run For Your Life,” is more revved-up....The band's energy shines through sawing guitars backed by pumping bass and strong drums...The group definitely sounds like it'd be fun in a late-night city bar...All the pieces are there for something truly unique." -

"A Band Keen on Atmosphere"

"The Yesterdays are infusing New York's sound with some much-needed texture...this is a band keen on atmosphere, capable of subdued lows and confident highs...David Silverman's vocals infuse an edge on the lyrics that underscores and emphasizes, making the words leap off the page rather than mingle in the background...Adam Swiderski's vocals are an appropriate contrast...the moody opener, "Cross the Line"...sounds like vintage Eagles...except not 17 minutes long and with better lyrics..."Hey, You Astronauts" is an optimistic highlight...THIS IS JUST AMERICAN ROCK, SOLID AND STRAIGHTFORWARD, BUT CERTAINLY NOT ORDINARY." -


Demo: Fourteen Blocks of Glory (September 2002)

Feeling a bit camera shy


Melodic rock, New York style...that is what happened when singer/songwriters David Silverman and Adam Swiderski met at a diner in Hoboken, NJ and decided to play music together. The addition of Brian Bair (drums) and Peter Niessen (bass) made the package complete - creating a band that has been compared stylistically to the likes of the Replacements, the Gin Blossoms, Wilco and the Counting Crows.

Now, after nearly two years of rocking in and around NewYork City and the eastern U.S., the Yesterdays have honed themselves into a finely tuned music-delivery machine. The Yesterdays entered the studio in late 2003 to record their first EP, Everything You Never Knew.

According to one reviewer, "the band's energy shines through sawing guitars backed by pumping bass and strong drums, showcasing a band capable of exploring diverse musical territory." Ranging from searing to introspective, Everything You Never Knew captures a young band experimenting with different styles, but always linked by a love of melody and guitar.
