“A ‘yoke’ is something that holds things together. ‘Lore’ means a set of stories or a collection of ideas about an event, time, or culture,” explains Adrian Galvin, when asked about the meaning behind his musical moniker Yoke Lore. “I want to tell stories about how things are bound and held together. I think something’s value is in its relationship to everything else. Work in the joints; where things connect.” Brooklyn-based project Yoke Lore is the new musical venture of Adrian Galvin, previously of Yellerkin and Walk the Moon. Yoke Lore layers the harmonies of Panda Bear, the soulful beats of M83, and the modern pop of Blackbird Blackbird to tell “the stories of how we are bound.” Galvin’s songs start with the folksy timbre of a banjo and add echoing waves of vocals and percussion to create unforgettable pop music with tactile sincerity and conviction.
Galvin grew up in an artistic family, his mother a director and his father an actor and sculptor. He was immersed in painting, photography, and ballet from an early age, eventually finding his first musical passion in the drums. While pursuing music, his artistry in other disciplines has not faltered, even lending his own artwork as the cover of his 2016 debut EP, Far Shore. It received glowing reviews from Consequence of Sound, Pigeons & Planes, The Fader, NYLON, and more. Far Shore achieved over 4 million Spotify streams, 3 Hype Machine top ten singles, and songs from the EP were featured in MTV’s The Real World and Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet. Galvin ended 2016 on a fall tour with Elliot Moss and a winter run of dates supporting Handsome Ghost.
When he’s not writing and recording new music, Galvin can be found teaching yoga or performing with his modern dance company Boomerang in Brooklyn. The physicality of his dance background helps Galvin communicate his message and connect with an audience while performing on stage as Yoke Lore. The live show finds Galvin using his entire being to connect his words and movement in a physical performance of the songs.
After kicking off 2017 with shows playing alongside Shura, Wild Child, and Urban Cone (as well as at Savannah Stopover and SXSW), Yoke Lore spent most of his spring and summer on the road. He supported Overcoats in the US and then traveled overseas for The Great Escape and a UK tour with The Pains of Being Pure at Heart. In June, he released his sophomore EP, Goodpain featuring the single of the same name that has since hit over 3 million Spotify streams. Yoke Lore played festivals all summer on the east and west coasts, leading up the the Billboard Hot 100 Music Festival in August. That same month, he recorded a cover of Savage Garden’s “Truly, Madly, Deeply” for Spotify Sessions that hit Spotify’s Top 10 Viral chart. In the fall, he toured with Overcoats again and then supported Aquilo to end the year. Yoke Lore began 2018 with his first headline tour, and he’ll be supporting FRENSHIP on tour through the spring
Young Aussie Quinn Lewis bears honesty on his sleeve through his soulful yet modern pop music. Heavily influenced by the likes of Sam Smith and Frank Ocean, it is easy to hear Quinn's rich timbre powered by personal lyrics and melodies.
After moving from Brisbane, Australia at a young age, he finally calls Nashville his home after stops in North Carolina and Los Angeles throughout his childhood.
Lewis made the move to Nashville in pursuit of a music career by enrolling in Belmont University. Two years into his studies, Quinn was working a full-time job serving tables and writing every day. During that time, his local reputation for pop-leaning melodies coupled with modern production caught the ear of Prescription Songs’ Co-Head of A&R, Katie Fagan whom then signed the 21-year-old to his first publishing deal in 2017.
Lewis left 2017 having achieved a #1 chart position on HypeMachine with his single “Slipping”, a pub deal in his pocket, and lots of plans for the year ahead. Working closely with AWAL (Artists Without A Label) and Prescription Songs, Lewis is set to roll out a handful of singles in 2018 the first of which "In Between" is out now.
