Yoke Lore is currently on the road, touring the US with Overcoats & the UK with The Pains of Being Pure at Heart. He made his UK debut at The Great Escape Festival this past weekend and will be headlining Brooklyn, NY’s Baby’s All Right on July 7th!
Yoke Lore is the new musical venture of Adrian Galvin, previously of Yellerkin and Walk the Moon. Galvin grew up in an artistic family, his mother a director and his father an actor and sculptor. He was immersed in painting, photography, and ballet from an early age, eventually finding his first musical passion in the drums. While pursuing music, his artistry in other disciplines has not faltered, even lending his own artwork as the cover of his 2016 debut EP & the forthcoming Goodpain EP.
Yoke Lore’s debut Far Shore EP included “Hold Me Down” which has over 3.8 million plays on Spotify and was a top 10 Hype Machine track. 2017 kicked off with a bang for Yoke Lore, playing shows alongside Shura, Aquilo, Wild Child & Urban Cone and making his SXSW debut which saw him as the face of Spotify’s Best Indie SXSW Playlist!
