Yngve and The Innocent

Following the success of his solo releases "Tell Men This" and "Have You No Love" in 2008 & 2009 and the Debut Full Band EP "Nothing Was Delivered" in 2010 critically acclaimed Irish/German americana artist "Yngve" returns with his band "The Innocent" and their new Single.

“Draw A Line” and B-side “Changing Tracks” build upon the traditions of The Band, Bob Dylan and Tom Waits, marrying great Americana with a folky, bluesy heart. To achieve the rich warmth on the recording, the band laid the tracks down live on to 1” tape, on one of the last analogue set ups left in the UK at Soup Studios. With Simon Trought (The Kills, Treetop Flyers) recording, the band have achieved a depth of sound that matches Yngve’s soaring skills as a songwriter.

German-born and Irish-raised, Yngve (pronounced Ing-Vuh) has been simmering under the skin of the music industry since 2004. Growing up in rural Sligo in the eighties, his dad’s weekly blues sessions fueled his interest in music. Fast-forward to 2008, Yngve formed new touring band, The Innocent, andhas been making a name for himself since in the London scene. Yngve has (amongst numerous headline appearances both solo and with a full band) shared bills with acts as diverse as Deathray Trebuchet, Danny & The Champions of the World, Katell Keineg, Treetop Flyers, Television Personalities and Paul Weller. They have also played storming sets at festivals including The Belfast Arts Festival, Secret Garden Party, Castlepalooza and a BBC Showcase at the London Thames Festival.

The band have already won great acclaim in Ireland and have featured live on shows by RTE's Pat Kenny and Jenny Greene and Today FM's Tony Fenton amongst others. Past release 'Tell Men This' was selected by Jump.ie as one of the Best 3 Irish Indie Albums Of 2008. The album track 'Little Boy'was also selected by Irish music mag Hot Press to have a video made for it by the famous New York Tisch School for the Arts. This video was subsequently nominated in the 'Best Solo Male' Category in the 2009 IMTV Video Music Awards.
