YYNOT was the coming together of award winning-Grammy ballot nominated Guitarist/Songwriter/Producer Billy Alexander (John Waite, FEEL, Ron Blair-Tom Petty) out of Southern California and Florida based virtuoso bassist Tim Starace. After being inspired from the last ever Rush R40 concert, Alexander wrote and recorded an instrumental piece entitled "YYNOT" that captured tinges of early Rush music that had inspired him as a child.
YYNOT soon thereafter became an internet sensation by creating collaborative videos but have now developed their live show into a full concert-like experience, wowing audiences coast to coast throughout the United States. Their debut album garnered praise from the rock world including Prog Magazine and Classic Rock Magazine. The record has continued to sell in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Brazil and more. YYNOT has accumulated devoted fans all over the U.S. and abroad. They released their second original album "Resonance" late summer 2019 to rave reviews, along with the "Pieces" vinyl EP featuring "Burning Bridge" in 2020. Look for their latest release "Light and Shade" in the fall of 2021.
‘YYNOT’ material stands up against some of the strongest progressive/hard rock music out there. Their live shows are designed to take the fans on a journey back in time as well as deliver a fresh new spark and bring back the power and majesty of hard rock that the fans have an undeniable hunger for.
