Equal parts Texas grit and New York energy, Yella Belly is a feeling set to a rebellious holler, a firecracker spark in a world on fire, a bunch of soft boys making music for a hard world. After wandering the New York City music scene, the band found themselves writing together in 2019 by way of their previous projects Elliot & The Ghost and Toma. The group brings together their rock roots and lust for infectious riffs both live and in their recordings. In their very first performances, the group was invited as direct support for Johnny Marr on his Call The Comet 2019 U.S. Tour.
Yella Belly is singer/guitarist William Thompson, bassist Connor Jones, drummer Jake Hiebert, guitarist Jack McLoughlin and keyboardist Steve Vannelli. Yella Belly’s debut release, in the form of a double-sided single entitled ‘Bad Dog / Last Days’ is out now.
