Yellow Ostrich Background
Yellow Ostrich began as the brainchild
of lead singer Alex Schaaf, who first dabbled in recording music with a 4-track recorder in his bedroom. Because of his passion
for music, Schaaf decided to pursue a music degree at Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin. It was there that he met
drummer Michael Tapper, and the two musicians decided to pursue their musical dreams together and moved to New York. When
the duo arrived in New York, they realized that they needed to decide on a name for their group, and found that Yellow Ostrich
suited their musical styles well.
The duo wrote and recorded their first studio album, The Mistress, while living in
Brooklyn. Multi-instrumentalist Jon Natchez jumped on board with Yellow Ostrich to help them define their sound and create
a catchy album. The band then embarked on tour to promote their debut album, and attracted so much buzz while touring that
they caught the attention of Barsuk Records. In 2011, Yellow Ostrich officially transitioned from an independent band to a
signed band thanks to Barsuk Records, under which they released their sophomore LP, Strange Land.
In 2013, Natchez decided
to leave the band to pursue other career options, so Schaaf and Tapper brought on Jared Van Fleet and Zach Rose to complete
the group. The band's official lineup still remains this way, and the quartet has been performing knockout shows at events
all over the country over the past couple of years. Whether Yellow Ostrich is performing one of the songs from their first
EPs or from their most recent album, Cosmos, there's no denying the fact that this talented group can produce some seriously
infectious indie tunes. As Yellow Ostrich heads back out on stage this July, make sure that you are in the audience to experience
the incredible energy of this up and coming indie band as they perform live. Head to StubHub today to secure your Yellow Ostrich
