Youth Rescue Mission is the sound of a childhood spent in harmony. Growing up together in Bigfork, Montana, Jesse, Luke, Daniel and Hannah Williams were raised in a home full of song and wonder. While their self-titled debut album is their first release, it’s hard to categorize them as a “new band.” In truth they’ve been making music together for decades, as their parents cultivated four creative young minds that sang together. A lot.

That harmony was quieted in 2000, as oldest sister Hannah left the nest and their parent’s marriage came to an end. Over the past decade, brothers Luke and Daniel also left home. and the Williams family struggled to redefine itself. In 2008 all four of the Williams kids found themselves in Seattle, singing together as adults and making Christmas recordings for their family. When they heard their voices together again, it was clear that creating and singing together should soon require their full attention. It was then that Youth Rescue Mission was formed.

As the first artists to record with Gary Mula in Columbia City Theater’s Bani Love studio, the Williams clan came together to write the first chapter as a new family. Trains from Montana brought their father Curtis and young brother Jesse to the session and through the magic of recording technology, Mom Amy and her string quartet accompanied from her living room in Many Lakes, Montana.

With each of the Williams’ kids contributing original songs, Youth Rescue Mission are a rare band of four individual songwriters who have managed to blend four distinct voices and produce a cohesive work. On their self-titled debut, released on March 5th on Red Kettle Records, The Williamses pull their shared experiences and and combined their individual voices in honeyed harmonies to tell their story. The album is expansive and diverse, spanning the comfortable ease of Laurel Canyon to the drama of Tin Pan Alley. With a soaring chorus, swelling strings, driving edge and heart-aching anthems, Youth Rescue Mission has taken the best of what bonds them and made something beautiful.

Youth Rescue Mission has played a number of local shows in the past couple of years with bands such as Grand Hallway, Birds and Batteries, Pickwick, The Young Evils, Lemolo etc... and will be touring in the summer of 2011.
