Jekyll/Hyde is the debut EP by Your Friend, the moniker of Taryn Blake Miller. The six tracks that make up the EP were honed during a whirlwind few months that saw Miller graduate from playing house shows to bigger venues.
The Dalton and Austin Paley-directed video for "Tame One" is now available, which shows Miller's life in her adopted hometown of Lawrence, KS, and performing live with the tight knit community of musicians, some of whom recorded with her on the EP.
In the fall of 2012, Miller and co-producer Jordan Geiger, bandleader for Hospital Ships, set out to capture Miller's intimate live energy but with refinements. Though her bare-bones stage show was in high demand, she wanted the songs more fleshed out for the record. Bringing in bass, drums and keyboards, as well as layered guitars and vocals, Miller self-released Jekyll/Hyde in August 2013 to an already devoted fan base that quickly multiplied. For the Domino release, Miller and engineers Danny Bowersox and CJ Calhoun added even more depth with freshly recorded live drums and vocals. The result is a captivating debut that sounds fully realized in its ideal form.
Your Friend will be performing at SXSW and announcing more shows soon. All dates below.
