Forkner Joins Yacht


02/17/2009
.
(PR) Adam Forkner, of Portland's White Rainbow, will be joining Yacht as a touring member for all forthcoming shows, beginning with their upcoming Australian and U.S. tours. The addition of Forkner has been both organic and much anticipated by Jona and Claire, who consider Adam to be the "third vertex" of the Yacht triangle, responsible for balance and affinity.

Forkner has collaborated with Yacht since its inception, from a short-lived improvised live incarnation in 2002 to recent guitar work and mixing help with Yacht's forthcoming See Mystery Lights album, due this spring on DFA Records.

After years of spatial exploration with his bands Yume Bitsu and Surface of Eceyon, as well as stints as a hired gun for a string of artists including Little Wings, Dirty Projectors, Jackie-O Motherf*cker, Devendra Banhart, and Atlas Sound, Adam's Swiss Army Knife of energies will add an extra dimensional quality to Yacht's already megaphysical live performances.

Forkner's forthcoming album New Clouds will be the sixth White Rainbow release, and the second for Kranky Records.
