Take Berlin

In early 2011 beat-up cassette deck was discovered under a pile of snow in Crown Heights, Brooklyn.

Several months later, two musicians meet backstage at the Baltic Soul Weekender music festival on the Baltic Sea.

Take Berlin is the culmination of these chance encounters. Lionize, their debut EP is a lo-fi collage of stories assembled with perspective from Brooklyn and Berlin, linking up somewhere along the way. It is a dialogue between captured moments, recorded directly onto the forgotten cassette deck. Take Berlin is Jesse Barnes and Yvonne Ambrée.

Years of friendship, youthful journeys, and passion have lead to the formation of this awe-inspiring duo. With only an acoustic guitar and two drums, Maitland catches your ear with angelic melodies, slow anticipation, and energetic percussion. In February 2013, a year after the formation of the band, the two moved to Philadelphia and have quickly become part of the welcoming music scene.
