YARD OF BLONDESÂ boasts influences beyond folk music by incorporating stoner rock, pop-rock and indie bits in their music, as well. The band is already well known on the west coast, having performed at more than 100 shows with other great bands such asÂ Hermane DÃ¼neÂ orAlain JohannesÂ (Queens of the Stone Age), and they have been growing as a full live band on the stages of L.A.Â clubs such as The Bootleg Theater, El Cid, The Viper Room, TAIX, Skinnyâ€™s Lounge,Â Hemingway, the Whisky A Go-Go and more.
In 2010, Vincent W. Jacob, a French songwriter and author met Fanny Hill, another French musician in Los Angeles. They were both looking for something new on the other side of the world. They startedÂ YARD OF BLONDESÂ together and soon took the desert roads to confront themselves to their rock, folk and stoner influences. In addition to Vincent on vocals / guitars and Fanny on vocals / piano / organ, the two are joined by Dean Chamberlain on bass guitar, Will Schlich on guitars, and Ben Lecourt on drums.
