ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Roots/alt. country duo The Yearlings combine warm harmonies with delicate flat-picking and sparse country blues to create songs that are at once haunting and soothing.

Robyn Chalklen and Chris Parkinson have wasted no time in getting down to the business of making music since meeting at the Tamworth Country Music Festival in 2000. Their successful self-titled debut album (released on Reckless Records in 2003) was recorded live in 8 hours and long-listed for an ARIA nomination.

The Yearlings joined the ranks of the great duos of alt. country/roots music with the release of their second album “Wind Already Blown” (Mixmasters Records) and their trademark skeletally sweet harmonies and sparse, but alive, playing style. Two tracks from this album were chosen for Claudia Karvan’s award-winning television series, ‘Love My Way’.

The Yearlings performed at the prestigious New York Guitar Festival in February 2008 sharing the bill with Teddy Thompson, Jim Lauderdale and Ollabelle. After which they stayed on in New York to make their third album, Highway Dancing.

Robyn’s voice demands attention - smooth, breathy and fragile, you listen to each syllable pass you by as you lean in, turn it up and immerse yourself in a story told by a fine songwriter devoid of pretence. Her beautiful, ethereal and mysterious songs are the perfect counterpoint to Chris’s earthy compositions, while his “hang-on-every-note” guitar playing remains as compelling as ever.

The Yearlings continue to garner praise for their mesmerising live performances and won a SAMI award for the AWESAM ‘Most Popular Australiana Act 2005’, and have been nominated for a Golden Guitar Award (Australia’s country music holy grail). They have continued to tour nationally to sell-out crowds and performing at festivals, including Port Fairy, the National Folk Festival, Queenscliff, FUSE, Nannup and Apollo Bay.

The Yearlings songs rock, sad and slow . . . like a chair on an old wooden porch.
