The Milwaukee-based genre melting pot, No No Yeah Okay, took form in 2014 when Mark Gage (producer) and Christopher Quasius (guitar) would jam in-between weekend beers. As their library grew, they sought out friends Colin Plant (vocals) and Joshua Paynter (bass) to help turn interesting samples into songs with depth.
The goal was to discover how each of their four unique musical backgrounds would collide to build a project. In 2015, No No Yeah Okay released their EP, ‘Dual’. Through the stylistic twist and turns of each member’s influence, No No Yeah Okay had quickly become established as a unique sonic presence, delivered by an elevated focus on aesthetics and narrative substance.
For a group still discovering their own identity, the attention on No No Yeah Okay awarded them with opportunities to take their sound to larger than life stages, encountering everything from Summerfest to NBA halftime shows to signing with LA-based independent label, Little Assembly, in 2017.
As No No Yeah Okay are set to release their follow up EP, ‘Cabal’, the band showcases their maturity as musicians. Similar to their previous EP, ‘Cabal’ centers around a deceptively common yet personally experienced narrative.
