YVETTE YOUNG Taps Her Way Onto EMGtv

We’ve been following Yvette Young for a while now, and I believe what we’re seeing now is the very beginning of a meteoric rise to…. something. Maybe the top of math rock, but I see her going a lot farther than that.


She plays some of the very cleanest two handed hammer-ons you’ll see anywhere, coupled with an amazing sense of rhythm and composition that raise her head and shoulders above the rest.

Her mastery of the guitar is but the tip of a very large iceberg of talent, some of which can be seen here in the first of what is hopefully a bunch of videos of her playing:

Yvette and her band Covet are doing a small tour of California with Chon and Polyphia next month, go see them during July at the following places:

As Editor-in-Chief of Gear Gods, I've been feeding your sick instrument fetishism and trying unsuccessfully to hide my own since 2013. I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.

  • Tobin who?

  • Could use some more dynamics. Stays at the same energy level the whole time. She’s very good, though.
