Yassou Benedict creates music that is highly composed and tight knit like the grid of a city. Pop, shoegaze, hip hop, and rock - each make their way into their songs, creating unique rhythmic structures anchored by vocal melodies ranging from the soulful to the haunting and ethereal.
Calling the small city of Hudson New York home, Yassou Benedict have carved themselves a place in the town's thriving and ever growing music scene. Opening for such acts as Melissa Auf der Mauer, and Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds, the band feels that to put on a great live show is the greatest gift musicians can give, and look forward to exploring each performance as a chance to experience their songs in a new way.
Inspired by coming of age in this turbulent time of progress and destruction, their songs convey feelings of longing: for identity, love, hope, and change, with lyrics both personal and political. Yassou Benedict is a group of young driven individuals, working to create music disconnected from any trends or revivals, music intended to grow in its relevance and help shape a better and more artistic world.
