Yusif! (10-song eponymous debut record released October 2011)



Yusif! is an alternative rock singer/songwriter project based in Seattle, Washington.

In the spring of 2010, utilizing friends and studio musicians, Kuwaiti-American singer/songwriter Yusif co-produced a 10-track debut album of all-original material with Joe Reineke (Gil Norton, The Meices, Alien Crime Syndicate) at Orbit Audio. Recorded in the heart of downtown Seattle the album incorporates a bright and gritty guitar-based sound that is centered around lyrical introspection and politically charged rock anthems.

The sound has been compared to Tom Petty with Cat Stevens vocals. With influences ranging from James Blunt to Stevie Wonder, the live show is infectiously energetic and upbeat. ItÂ’s not uncommon to find audience members dancing during the show and humming a chorus on the way home.

With a unique Middle Eastern perspective and background, a summer record release party soon to be a announced, live upcoming radio spots in the Washington area in June, the start of a partnership with local indie label Critical Sun Recordings, and a 2012 west coast summer tour in the works, the future is bright for this talented up and coming Seattle solo artist.

Look for a new single or two to be released on Critical Sun in the fall of 2012 as well!
