b. Kingsbarns, Fife, Scotland. The sleepy acoustic folk stylings from the 70s cult musician Nick Drake may be the prototype that UK singer-songwriter Yorkston strives for, as evidenced by his 2002 debut record, Moving Up Nation. Raised within the community of Kingsbarns, Yorkston started playing music when he was just eight yrs . old, and continuing to create his own tracks throughout his adolescent years. When he was 17, the budding musician relocated to Edinburgh where he started playing single acoustic displays. Additionally, for this period Yorkston performed bass for a short spell with regional garage area punkers Huckleberry, before coming back back again to his single acoustic profession. In 2000, Yorkston delivered a tape to UK disk jockey John Peel off, who played among the tunes, ‘Shifting Up Nation, Roaring The Gospel’, on his radio display. A month-long tour assisting John Martyn adopted in 2001, and along with his profession clearly within the upswing, Yorkston made the decision enough time was to assemble a complete backing music group. Dubbed the Sports athletes, the group presented Faisal Rahman (percussion), Reuben Taylor (keyboards), Holly Taylor (tube/whistle), Doogie Paul (bass), and Wendy Chan (violin). Authorized to Domino Information, in 2002 they released the four-track EP St. Patrick, in addition to their debut record. Manufacturer Kieran Hebden (Refrigerator, Four Tet) helped put in a darker advantage towards the 2004 follow-up, Simply Beyond The River.
