Description

Take Shape on CD

Guided by principal singer-songwriter Ben Gmetro's constantly evolving and ever-improving songwriting, The Dreadful Yawns have undergone numerous artistic and personnel transformations in their tenure as a band. With their 2003 debut release Early on Chicago's Undertow Music, The Dreadful Yawns drew heavily upon, and gained glowing comparisons to, folk-pop luminaries such as Nick Drake and Neil Young (PopMatters). Following the critical success of Early, The Dreadful Yawns became the last band to sign with Greg Shaw on Bomp! Records, and released their beautifully executed self-titled album in 2005. This release saw a more psychedelic incarnation of the band, garnered them critical acclaim from such storied publications as the Wall Street Journal, and earned them numerous comparisons to both classic and modern psych-folk bands such as Beachwood Sparks and The Byrds. In keeping with the fluidity of the band's history, The Dreadful Yawns are once again in the process of reinventing themselves musically. Ben Gmetro has assembled a new band in order to achieve his ever changing musical vision which has segued from country and folk sentiments to a looser, more adventurous manifestation of The Dreadful Yawns. The current line-up is comprised of: Ben Gmetro on vocals & guitar, Elizabeth Kelly on vocals, keys, bells, & tambourine, Chris Russo on drums & vocals, Clayton Heuer on keys & violin and Eric Schulte on guitar & vocals.
