Sahar, an Iranian/Lebanese-American, brings the rich textures of Middle Eastern melodies colored with Western pop/soul, while Cameron infuses the raw edge of Bluegrass and the casual coolness of the Country crooner. Most importantly, at the heart of Yeller Tooth’s music are stories—songs that breathe life into characters, conjuring narratives that resonate across cultures and histories.
