Curt Yagi & The People Standing Behind Me

Curt Yagi & The People Standing Behind Me

Once voted the Best of the Bay Singer Songwriter by the San Francisco Bay Guardian, Curt Yagi has been on a tear through the Bay Area music scene. Curt and his full band, The People Standing Behind Me, are always-engaging to the crowd and bring a blend of happy acoustic rock with a touch of funk for flavor.

Best of all, Ben Fong-Torres, former Senior Editor, Rolling Stone had this to say, "People keep comparing him to other artists, but I think he just sounds like Curt Yagi, and that is plenty good enough. This is one excellent singer and songwriter."

On December 1st, 2012, my new EP, Racing September was officially released. This project was a so much fun; releasing it was somewhat bittersweet. I had the opportunity to work with some amazingly talented people, who helped me bring my vision to reality. Racing September was inspired by the past few years, where I was lucky enough to marry the woman of my dreams, build on my relationships with family and friends, and anxiously await the birth of my son (born September 9th 2012). I am truly in a happy place. My push to become the man that I want to be is stronger than ever. Even through tough times, where I was forced to move on or let go, it has all had its purpose; and every moment led me to September.
