23-year-old Winston Yellen, better known as Night Beds, possesses a voice of tremulous, outstanding beauty. It’s something he is highly aware of, that much is evident. For on debut album ‘Country Sleep‘, when Yellen unleashes his vocal gymnastics of heartbreaking vulnerability over lashings of rumbling Americana, he holds nothing back.
Hailing from the comparably culturally deficient Colorado Springs, the formative Night Beds migrated east to Nashville, entered the heart of America’s alt-country scene and took up residence in none other than Johnny Cash’s former abode. It was here, in the company of the ghosts and atmosphere of rock and roll history that Yellen’s music was formulated and his extraordinary voice refined.
