The future exists first in our imagination, then in our will, then in reality ”

Lyrics from Paradise Engineering

Formed in Portland but now based in Los Angeles, YACHT is the moniker created by electronic musician and multimedia artist Jonathan “Jona” Bechtolt. Fellow media artist Claire Evans began to perform full-time with YACHT in 2008, and the group further expanded to include musicians Rob "Bobby Birdman" Kieswetter, Jeffrey Brodsky and Katy Davidson during their live shows. The band’s latest full length release “Shangri-la” dropped in June 2011 on DFA Records. It was later accompanied by art pieces and even a Shangri-La fragrance. Shangri-La was the follow-up to the band’s first full-length See Mystery Lights (2009), which showcased YACHT in its current two-piece form. Jona previously released three solo albums under the YACHT name, Super Warren MMIV (2003), Mega (2005) and I Believe In You. Your Magic is Real (2007).
An indie dance duo embraces exuberant fun and inspirational philosophizing on a quest for utopia
