"Preview: Yesway Thursday at BOTH"

If you’ve never heard the floating, flowing faucet of magical unification that is Yesway don’t panic, they are not very searchable on the interweb, they have been a band for less than a year, and they apparently do not like to go to bars. Worry not, you can catch them tonight at Bottom of the Hill supporting The Botticellis.

You probably know the members of the duo individually by the other projects they are involved in. Emily Ritz is also the main vocalist and ukulele strummer behind the group Honeycomb and has played with Devotionals.

Kacey Johansing not only has quite the solo career but also plays with Honeycomb, The Botticellis, and previously played with The Blank Tapes and pop sensations Geographer. That was her you saw providing backing vocals and keys in the new Thao & Mirah videos.

It always amazes me to see artists who are so immersed in such fantastic projects continue on to have successful offshoots. Who has the time, I wonder, to expend so much energy in so many directions? Those who are fully committed to living and loving creation, and these two definitely expel that sentiment from the very core of their being.

Live, their voices literally melt together, their union wholly complimentary and almost completely necessary as if, after the first note, you can’t imagine life without these very tones falling through the air. Their performances are intimate, like a private conversation in front of a room full of voyeurs. I had the chance to throw a couple of quick questions their way before the show on Thursday in order to try to catch a glimpse of the inner workings of the exquisite pair, and here is what I got in return. - SFStation

"Broke-Ass Band Interview"

Here’s what’s up. Kacey Johansing was once in in The Blank Tapes and Geographer. She currently performs under her own name and in Honeycomb and The Botticellis . She sings like an angel and plays percussion like nobody’s business. Emily Ritz has played in Devotionals, heads up Honeycomb, and somehow conjures Jolie Holland, Aaliyah, and “Sexual Healing” all at the same time. Put the two ladies together and you’ve got Yesway, the hottest new supergroup in San Francisco. And I know what you’re thinking. Can a supergroup be made up of just two people? YESWAY. - Broke-Ass Stuart


Still working on that hot first release.
