With "electro-poppy grooves and swooning vocals” (Star Tribune, June 2018), Minneapolis-based pop group, Yam Haus, is challenging the indie dominated scene of the Twin Cities. Tight guitars, dreamy synths, and clean production from Grammy award-winning producer Mark Heimermann, helped drive year one successes.

Their debut album, “Stargazer,” lands with the energy of WALK THE MOON, the charisma of Coldplay, and the emotion of Ed Sheeran. Strong melodies and thoughtful songwriting become even more apparent and powerful when big production and synth-heavy tracks are stripped back with the minimal arrangements of their acoustic EP, “Stargazer Sessions.”

“Most ready to pop: In the night's final slot, collegiate rockers Yam Haus seemed like the band most in line for commercial success.” - Chris Riemenschneider, Star Tribune

"Upon the first chord they played Yam Haus had my complete attention. Infectious energy, clever songwriting, and catchy melodies... these guys could be the Midwest’s better version of Maroon 5." - Jordan Alamat, Go 96.3

“Arena-level pop has to start somewhere, and with Yam Haus, that’s the Amsterdam. The sparkly synth-pop band stunned at the Current’s Best New Bands showcase in early 2018 and followed up with a too-big-for-the-venue performance at their June release show. A year later, their debut, Stargazer, feels even more purposeful, even more ready to bubble over to wider and more hook-hungry audiences. If they strike soon, the exuberant group of Lars Pruitt, Zach Beinlich, Seth Blum, and Jake Felstow could be bound for stadium-size receptions. The spirit in them calls for it.” - Jerard Fagerberg, City Pages

“[They] made a big splash last month as a last-minute fill-in opening act for Bishop Briggs in front of a packed First Ave crowd. That was a perfect setup for their slickly produced, radio-friendly debut album coming this month, “Stargazer,” with a mix of electro-poppy grooves and swooning vocals that suggest an Ed Sheeran opening should be next.” - Chris Riemenschneider, Star Tribune

"The Amsterdam was flooded with people from the front of the stage all the way back to the entrance... From start to finish Yam Haus had the crowd going absolutely wild... To say it was infectious would be an understatement." - Emily Hoffmann, Twin Cities Media
