Yellabird is the musical collaboration of lead singer/guitarist Martin Stubbs and drummer Felipe Gaviria. Citing influences ranging from Queens of the Stone Age to Black Sabbath, the duo combines stoner rock riffs, big harmonies and driving drums for a sound rooted in the present, yet reminiscent of the past.
The pair self-recorded and released their debut EP Mountainosaurus in August of 2012 and quickly took to the stage to hone their live sound. In just a few short months, the band performed a slew of gigs at Boston mainstays including O’Brien’s and Great Scott, and released Live @ The Barn, a two song video performance series.
The success of Mountainosaurus brought a growing following, and the inception of their follow-up EP, Little Brother, which was recorded over a number of months at Q Division studios. The EP showcases guest drummer Ben Hughes (Sand Reckoner), and allows Little Brother to stay true to the foundations laid on Mountainosaurus, while expanding the group’s sound with an even greater sonic footprint.
With the EP completed, Gaviria has since rejoined the fray, and Yellabird is once again ready to hit the stage. The duo will be performing in the New England and NYC markets throughout the fall of 2013 and into 2014.
