Still working on that hot first release.



Yankee & The Foreigners was formed by a group of friends attending Berklee College of Music, who gained attention as a group by busking in animal onsies on the streets of Boston's Back Bay. In a quick flash of improvised creativity, Sam, the British kangaroo/lemur, declared their band name was "Yankee & The Foreigners" to an inquiring promoter. Though the name came quickly, Y&TF took many months developing and honing their sound, wanting to retain the folk elements that made them popular in the streets, but also hoping to incorporate a shared love for edgier sounds. Finding their personal blend of these two styles, they embarked onward to writing and performing, finishing their debut EP Don't Wake Me Up midway through their first year together. Boasting citizenships from the United States, Canada, the U.K., and Norway, each member of the group brings their own distinctive voice to the music, both as writers and vocalists. After a successful tour of the United Kingdom in the summer of 2016 Yankee is now continuing to perform around Boston and is working on their debut studio album set to be released in June of 2017.
