Yarborough Brothers Band is a Country Rock Band that originated in Columbia, South Carolina with Jason Scott on rhythm guitar and vocals, Matt Yarborough lead vocals, Scott Hoult Lead Guitar, Nolan Ross Bass, and Adam Shealy on Drums.

The group of South Carolina college students (currently attending USC and Winthrop) that call themselves Bellavida formed only a couple short years ago but possess a positive musical vision that belies their youth. The 2016 EP Letters To Rose contains the seeds of what has grown into a formidable live act with a full-length recording in the works.There are echoes of the eclectic pop-rock of Dave Matthews Band in the various twists and turns of “Look At How She Lays,” which features singer/guitarist Logan Baldwin, while “Fool” shows off the Amy Winehouse tendencies of singer/keyboardist/violinist Cat Galan. While the group lists those two acts along with Grouplove, Moon Taxi, and more as musical touchstones, there is no clear style being proffered by the band’s output to date. Every song has its own feel, and the concepts are simple while the structures are musically complex. The result is an expansive acoustic/electric hybrid that’s equal parts indie rock, classic songcraft, and groove-laden experimentation.
