Yours for Now formed in 2008 in Brooklyn, New York; however, various members had been playing together from as early as 2006. Zach and Doug used to meet for hours every Friday in a basement apartment to practice and write songs. Most of the projects reflected only an individual writer until they wrote "San Francisco." Doug had previously written the song while living in Dallas, TX, but was unsatisfied with the vocal arrangement. Zach rewrote a new melody and new lyrics and the band's first song was created.
Brian and Linda joined Zach and Doug after moving to NYC . Brian had been playing drums with Heads Up Display, but left to pursue music with his wife (Linda) and his cousin (Doug).
After several practice sessions and band meetings, the group finally settled on the name Yours For Now.
Mai Nemoto Kelly joined the band in January of 2009 as the band worked to develop a new varied sound -- a sound that relied less on "mass volume" (as Zach would say), and more on the inclusion of the harmonium and clarity of lyrical presentation.
