The Bills are known the world over for their exquisite songcraft, superb arrangements and dynamic live performances. The Bills do not disappoint fans on this long-awaited album. Yes Please features some of their finest collaborative songwriting to date, including the bluegrassy "Blackberry Ivy and Broom," the Gypsy-flavored "Gale in My Sail," the sea-faring song "Pandora's in Flames" and of course, their rollicking anti-apocolypse song "Not the End." Showing off their first-class musicianship, the album also features several instrumentals, including the Celtic-inspired "Scotch Bonnet" and Richard Moody's melodic "The Gardenton Waltz."
With twelve original compositions and one lush arrangement of a medley of gypsy-jazz ballads, these tracks draw all the beauty and energy you can imagine out of acoustic instruments and multi-layered vocal harmonies. Influenced in equal parts by Django Reinhardt, Sam Bush, Stan Rogers and Chopin, The Bills have crafted an album that appeals to acoustic music fans of all ages and styles--from bluegrass and gypsy jazz to classical and folk music from around the globe. When asked if they want another helping of The Bills' tasty tunes and lively performances, folks everywhere can't help but say "Yes Please!"
An enhanced CD with additional lyric booklet and other special content, Yes Please also includes a video of "Shining Face," one of the fan favorites on the album.
