“With an electric cello in hand and a loop pedal under foot, Yanover is her own one-woman band. Playing and layering her melodies, she crafts instrumental atmospheres that grow and transform onstage.” - Maggie Molloy — NPR Slingshot

Cellist Gretchen Yanover wears two musical hats: one as a composer, primarily for her electric cello with looping pedal—and one as a classical cellist. Gretchen went through Seattle public schools, falling in love with the cello's deep sound in 6th grade. She pursued performance and music education at University of Washington, embracing an interwoven path of teaching and performing. Ms Yanover guided students in music for 17 years, while at the same time growing her own solo performing career. Gretchen started playing with a loop sampler around 2001 and it changed her musical life, inspiring her to improvise and compose spacious string atmospheres woven with warm melodies.
