The Yearlings 

Two guitars, two voices.

Quiet, intimate, raw and powerful, producing a new strain of acoustic music, distilling Americana through the filter of distinctly Australian life.

Robyn Chalklen and Chris Parkinson (The Yearlings) combine warm two part harmonies, acoustic guitar and rich electric tremolo landscapes to create a sound that is aged. Old, just the right amount of haunting.

Their “Highway Dancing” album (2008) took them to Brooklyn, New York, to work with legendary performer producer, Larry Campbell (of Bob Dylan, Levon Helm fame), and members of NYC roots band Ollabelle.

Reminiscent of the great alt. country Americana genre, but born out of Adelaide, Australia The Yearlings’ sound is all their own.

They straddle old and new, bitter and sweet, darkness and transcendence – modern day porch music.
