Bio

Hearing Yonat & Her Muse play eclectic and groovy folk-soul songs will break your heart wide open.

Yonat Mayer, the band's front woman, songwriter and singer has been crafting songs for over a decade and performing as a solo artist. Her songwriting is reminiscent of Norah Jones meets Feist meets Lauryn Hill. She has released 2 full length albums on CD Baby.

In collaboration with bassist Mark Bailey and drummer John Russell, the trio is currently performing at Bay Area venues and quickly gaining popularity. They are recording their debut album and hit single "Wild Hearts" in the Oakland hills to be released soon.

Born in Milwaukee, her original vocal role models are
powerful women such as Aretha Franklin, Dinah Washington, Ella Fitzgerald, Lauryn Hill, and other soulful heavyweights like Joni Mitchell and Carol King. Having spent ten years in Israel she is also deeply influenced by Jewish prayer and Israeli soul music. Yonat studied music at Israel's leading contemporary music school, Rimon and has also been trained and inspired by a practice of Indian Classical training under the tutelage of Veena Sahasrabuddhe.

Yonat released one live album in 2006, "Yonat - Live in Milwaukee" and a fully produced studio project in 2009 called "City of Longing". Her recent and most intimate live recording, "Hineni" was released in May 2011.
Yonat is available for performances in the Bay Area and beyond.
