"Yes Now IS"

Every decade has it’s music that reflects the signs of the times. As we shift into the Age of Aquarius, enter Tidewater’s newest band Yes Now IS leading us into the new era with uplifting songs of awareness and consciousness. With bells around her ankles, Amaris Ziayanah and partner Jason W. McKinzie create an array of sounds that are not confined to, but are reminiscent of the late 60’s flowers in your hair folk music while also bridging over to an Indie style of more modern times. Experimental music of the new age fused with acoustics and exotic sounds of the world. - Splash Magazine

Yes Now IS (2009)



Yes Now IS are known as the lovebirds of the Americana scene. Their chemistry is immediately evident upon meeting them, and their performances are a cool refreshing breeze. Whether performing their heartfelt and fun original compositions or seamlessly blending a wide range of classic tunes, this ever-evolving brainchild of the accomplished Jason W. McKinzie and his partner in all things Amaris Ziayanah is a proposed journey into extreme positivity.

Jason W. McKinzie follows in the tradition of tunesmiths throughout time immemorial, dipping his musical cup gratefully into the river of those who have come before him. Not a stranger to the universal music of Now, Jason finds his inspiration in love, unity, compassion and peace. Genres are no obstacle for this composer. Walls are meant for climbing, and the illusory walls of art are no exception.

Amaris Ziayanah has long been involved with the writing and performing of soulful, heartfelt music of many varied styles, and her captivating voice has been described as heavenly. As an accomplished bellydancer, Amaris is recognized by many as "the One who Dances with her Eyes." The love and fluidity that she expresses through dance is an intriguing and captivating experience.

Yes Now IS are available for functions both public and private; anything from a Renaissance Fair to a Fundraiser to your wedding. Give us a call!

Love and light to all...
