Americana Music Fusing Appalachian Folk and Traditional Country Groove with Exceptional Vocal Harmony


“The Old Yellers join in Harmony at the Intersection of Appalachian Folk, Rock and Bluegrass evoking the sweet country sounds of the golden era”


Beloved in Portland and beyond for over a decade, The Old Yellers present their new release “Ten From Town” which blends memorable songwriting and deft musicianship with incisive percussion and a contemplative feel anchored by Berly’s resonant baritone, while Hartless weaves inventive high-lonesome harmonies throughout in a smoky tenor recalling early Neil Young.—Jeff Rosenberg Willamette Week Writer and KBOO Radio DJ

“The Old Yellers dial the hotline to the heart of music lovers everywhere with their tried and true brand of Indie Folk”

With excellent original songwriting, old school country charm, rock and roll roots and well crafted ballads, their edgy style, transcendent harmonies and rollicking roadhouse twang and holler has compelled fans from Portland, Oregon to Dublin, Ireland to raise their glasses in triumph, open their hearts in connection and laugh out loud in joyous revelry.


“The Yellers–who alternate between the modifiers “Old” and “Auld”–are relative “newbies,” having formed in early 2003. But their deft Americana is at least four decades old, recalling the boogie of Canned Heat, the sweet melodicism of The Band, and the nimble guitar work of the Grateful Dead.”
—Matthew Singer   Willamette Week
