Michael Tapscott / Yea-Ming Chen / Andrew Cervantes

Michael James Tapscott -

Yea-Ming Chen - 
The songs on Yea-Ming and the Rumours’ debut album, “I Will Make You Mine,” are some of the sweetest, sunniest '60s-evoking folk-pop you’ll hear — except for the dark, even menacing bits that unexpectedly peek out of shadows that you might not even have noticed. “Gunshots ring out on the street,” the Bay Area native Yea-Ming Chen sings in the middle of the otherwise bubbly opener, “Where Did Our Moment Go,” a little pathetic fallacy of the lost moment. - Steve Hochman / KQED

Andrew Cervantes - 
Andrew Cervantes was born and raised in San Diego and now lives and records in San Francisco. Influenced by songwriters like Leonard Cohen, Townes Van Zandt, Merle Haggard, and Guy Clark, Andrew's lyrics are distinctly his own, with beautiful, haunting images of landscapes both internal and external; stories of traveling, searching, rambling, and experiencing the impermanence of life and love.
