When it comes to Yuca’s music, the band writes what comes naturally. And what comes naturally is best described as “infectious, uplifting, emotional & passionate music. With hints of U2, Radiohead, Muse and Elbow, YUCA are constantly being compared to the greats. “We don’t try be anything we aren’t, we write songs that move us emotionally, spiritually and physically. We try to be uplifting without being pretentious and catchy without being slick”.
Their live shows, dubbed “a live experience”, are celebrated, untamed a airs that see their soulful songs expanding endlessly and incredibly. With over 375 plus tour dates under their belt, Yuca has been hitting the pavement and touring for the past few years from their hometown in Langley BC across Canada, the US and into the UK garnering a reputation as an electrifying live attraction. This is a band with a hard working, do it yourself, attitude and they have set huge goals for themselves.
“We tour as much as we can selling our albums every avenue possible town by town, country by country and we focus alot on our live show. We spend alot of time writing new music and we dedicate to spending equal amounts of time working on our live show.”
With powerful songs and a live show to back it up, Yuca has been asked to share the stage with many great bands such as: The Killers, AFI, Metric, De La Soul, The Trews, Lifehouse, Hot Hot Heat, Billy Talent, Theory of a Deadman, Default, Kim Mitchell and Econoline Crush.
