Yaquina Bay is a 5-Piece, ever-evolving, folk-pop group from Oregon’s Capitol City of Peace.
Their debut record The Valley In Autumn was a tribute to all things Old World. On their second record, The Eastern Desert their sound has developed into a more communal, shared experience. While still tipping their hats to an era long-past, Yaquina Bay has injected a healthy amount of pop in to this effort. It’s both nostalgic and fresh, familiar and new.
I grew up in the deserts of Eastern Oregon. A normal childhood really. Tree forts by the river, dogs, summer, winter, love and joy, heartbreak and sorrow. The Eastern Desert is an exploration of that childhood. The deep attachment and indifference I have toward the land in which I grew. The wonderful and terrible memories etched in to my core.
