About Yo Soybean
Yo Soybean is comprised of three longtime friends. Nicholas Mallis, the primary songwriter, leads, and drummer Ryan Sedgewick, and banjo player Andrew Klein, provide accompaniment. On any given night, different friends will join the primary three to create a communal experience on stage. Following the traditions of Dylan and Oberst, Mallis crafts insidiously honest lyrics, which the band surrounds with edgy americana and newgrass. The songs are modern tales wrapped in sounds evoking simpler times. Lead single "Anticipation" bounces with slide banjo and djembe as Mallis delivers an impassioned stream of consciousness concerning the mundane intricacies of twenty-something year old existence in the twenty-first century.
