Since the formation of their group in 2011, the Austin- native band Yuma have created a musical sound that is completely their own— a sultry blend of indie rock and R&B that is shatteringly beautiful. The band, which is composed of Jesse Liberty, Alex Hartley, Andrew Framsted and Tyler Edmunds, blends bright tones and driving rhythms with a certain cinematic flavor that is captivating to audiences.

On Vinyl has been covering music, news and events for over a year now. In that year we have established a litany of connections with artists, venues and companies across Austin. Every time a new band or artist gets brought to my desk [Editor’s Note: Jake’s desk is a dirty mattress in the corner of his “room” which, in and of itself is nothing more than a shack] I am so excited to be a part of not only the growth of On Vinyl, but the growth of another great artist.
