Bilingual singer-songwriter Arthur Yoria quickly established himself as one of Houston’s most tantalizing acts seventeen years ago with the release of his self-titled EP. Nearly a generation and several albums later, Yoria still pleases crowds with his masterful use of harmonica, drum loops and keyboards on top of his essential guitar and vocals to form a unique new wave indie Americana ambiance. Yoria’s latest offering is the full-length After You, nine tracks that cover a whole spectrum of sounds as well as Yoria’s seemingly effortless multi-instrumental and lyrical talent. Yoria’s causin’ a ruckus this Friday night at the Cactus Cafe for the physical release of After You, and you can enjoy his rustic yet spacey sound right now with “I Just Want To Sit Here”.
