After being part of well known bands of Istanbul’s alternative music scene such as Nekizm, Pitohui and Selim Saraçoğlu, Yank released his first solo album I/I on November 2016 via Istanbul based online table Who Are We Who We Are, which he composed and produced himself in Utrecht. After a series of tours in Europe and Turkey, Yank is currently working on new material and will soon be releasing a new single.

“Turkish multi-instrumentalist Yank brings the joyous melancholy on stage, combining sweet melodies and unique harmonies with lyrics in his mother tongue. Though his compositions stem from singer-songwriter traditions, he definitely enjoys mixing up many influences in his genre-bending approach.” -Tivoli Vredenburg
