The Beautiful New Stranger In Town – Winston Yellen Performs Live for Fuel/Friends

Winston Yellen and his brother, Abe, returned to their hometown at the end of last year to perform a few songs for Fuel/Friends. The beautiful session includes a heartbreaking cover of Damien Jurado’s “Everything Trying,” plus two originals off Night Beds’ Country Sleep, released just yesterday. Watch all three songs above!

Night Beds are wasting no time in conquering the road and world of touring. Winston and the crew will perform on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (win tickets) this Friday, February 8. They also stopped by the NPR offices today for their first Tiny Desk concert. More details on that performance to come, but check out these photos – #1 & #2 – until you can watch the real thing.

Lastly, Winston talked to The Tennessean’s Kevin Walters on the Music City Podcast. Listen to the interview HERE.

Night Beds – Country Sleep

“The guy is blessed with jump-out-of-the-gym vocal athleticism…the beautiful, new stranger in town.”
- Pitchfork

“Gregarious and unassuming in appearance, he looks like any other 23 year-old from Colorado Springs, but when he sat down at the microphone and opened his mouth to sing the a capella “Faithful Heights,” we all fell completely silent. Dumbstruck. That voice just flies out of him, with no warning….I think Winston’s efforts could be one of the most notable and promising of the year that lies ahead of us.”Fuel/Friends

“There’s a lot of dudes out there with sad tales of heartbreak and failure, but to be honest, they never sound this good.”MTV Hive
