CROSSTOWN CONCERTS PRESENTS: OLDEN YOLK
Olden Yolk is the project led by songwriters Shane Butler and Caity Shaffer. Their 2018 self-titled LP enveloped listeners in a sound uniquely of-the-moment yet simultaneously time-tested, oscillating between art rock tendencies and delicate, yet angular ballads. The project was initially conceived in 2012 by Butler as an outlet for one-off songs and visual art while touring and releasing albums with the band Quilt (Mexican Summer).
Following the release of a split-record with Weyes Blood in 2014, the duo released their first full-length LP on Trouble in Mind in 2018. The record grew from a poetry collaboration Shaffer and Butler started in 2016, in which they would write a poem to each other each day.
With support from Katy J Pearson
Combining an incredibly unique voice with a penchant for timeless melody, Katy J Pearson pens tracks that only could have come from her years growing up in the rolling hills of the West Country. Having first explored songwriting as one half of dream-pop duo Ardyn, her new solo project casts an intimate light upon her distinctive lyricism / vocal combo, all the while refining her portrayal of the wondrous world around her. Her songs convey a glorious nostalgia, refreshingly at odds with the rush and fury of modern life.
