The real original deal...propulsive prog epics...”

— Classic Rock Magazine

I think YYNOT are a dynamic and talented band...wishing them a great future.”

— Ian Grandy: Rush's first roadie, soundman/head of concert security 1969-1983


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. Not long after, Alexander saw Bassist Tim Starace post videos of his mind-blowing and accurate Rush bass covers, Alexander recruited then 20 year old Rocky Kuner after seeing her perform a jaw-dropping version of Deep Purple’s “Highway Star” while she was still in highschool! Drummer Joel Stevenett came into the fold coming from a stellar career as a national touring/session drummer. 

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., Brazille and more. YYNOT has accumulated devoted fans all over the U.S. and abroad.They will be releasing their second original album "Resonance" late summer 2019.

‘YYNOT’ material stands up against some of the strongest progressive/hard rock music out there.Their originals have already garnered national airplay as well as in Canada. 

YYNOT’s 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.
