In 1998, Jackie G and DJ Wade (Peter) decided to move to NYC and be roommates. Wade got a night shift job (getting coffee...) at SONY Music Studios and Jackie, a painter, eagerly accepted a job at a wallpaper factory in Queens. THE YEAH was their basement studio creation on the 4th floor of an industrial loft building in Brooklyn. Wade made beats. Jackie sang along. The goal was to make true reflections of daily life via the poppiest songs EVER. Their first song was 'Come on Let's Go', an autobiographical pep-song that gave homage to their many influences; oldies, indie rock, reggae, hip hop, classic rock, new wave, techno, R&B, folk, country and western, soul, show tunes and top 40. The song was passed along from friend to friend and fell into the hands of Duane at Other Music in NYC. Duane encouraged The Yeah to put something out ASAP... The Yeah agreed and released a homemade Limited Edition EP that quickly sold out at Other Music. In 2001, the Yeah made their true indie DEBUT with their self titled record, which quickly climbed to the top 20 on CMJ's college chart. The album, like the EP, was only available at Other Music. (Now it can be found on iTunes and any other online distributer) THE YEAH no longer live together in Brooklyn. Pete has moved his own apartment in manhattan and is producing the likes of music giants such as Jennifer Lopez, Natasha Bedingfield, and Lindsay Lohan. Jackie is living in Brooklyn and showing her paintings around town and in other cities outside of NYC. THE YEAH has continued to refine their anything goes pop sound. The band is presently 'almost done' with their second full-length album recorded entirely in pete's parent's basement and the songs keep getting catchier.
