A warm howdy to you and thank you for joining our monthly(ish) newsletter! Cheers! Now, on to the fun stuff…
There’s so much happening in the Y&Y camp, it’s hard to know where to start. We have our debut full length album coming out this mid-March with a string of shows to follow, we started a YouTube series, and we’re about to start mapping out our Summer Tour! There’s also some other fun stuff we’ve been up to! After a little time and thought, we’ve come up with a title to our debut album.
It’s going to be called “Three Rivers” and no, it’s not a song title on the new album. It’s actually a city in south Texas that just so happens to be approximately halfway between Corpus Christi (Jimmy’s hometown) and San Antonio (Josh’s hometown). We love this title because it creates a bit of mystery on the surface but also really symbolizes the fact that we both brought our individual songwriting styles to meet in the middle and work together to tell a bigger story.
So it’s true that we are actually finished recording and mixing the album, but we still have the final hurdles of getting the album mastered, distributed to radio stations, and printing physical copies. If you already donated, we love and appreciate your support! If you would like to donate now, here’s a fun way for you do so: Guess the change in the tip jar featured in our “change video” on Instagram, and the person closest to the official grand total (without going over) will win a #YoshAndYimmy Prize Bundle (including a signed copy of the new album, stickers, and a TON of other exclusive content).

Starting last summer, while we were staying in Skidmore, Tx recording our album at Sound Machine Studios, we killed some time by starting a little game we called “Roll the Dice with Yosh & Yimmy” (episode links above). It’s one part drinking game, one part playing music, and all parts ridiculous and sometimes a little crude. We had so much fun doing it, we did a few more and now we’re releasing the first two episodes, OUT NOW on our YouTube page, with new episodes out every Tuesday. We hope to improve quality as we go along but are really excited to share these with you. Please like and leave us comments, even to say you think we’re complete idiots for doing this.
