Yam Haus is a band from Minneapolis, MN.
They have built a devoted grass roots following in the Midwest and across the US, sold out the iconic 1,500 capacity First Avenue venue in Minneapolis, and have gotten their music added to regular rotation on the Twin Cities iHeart station Cities 97.1 as an independent band. They have a new body of songs made in Nashville with producer Mark Needham that they hope to soon share with the world.

Minneapolis musician Landon Conrath found his voice almost by accident. A drummer by trade, Conrath spent his formative years keeping the beat in bands rather than fronting them. It wasn’t until he opened up to a friend at a pool party with a new composition, he was encouraged to hone in his sound. Conrath immersed himself in the recording process with reckless abandon. Since making his debut in 2020, Conrath’s distinctive brand of hook-laden indie-pop has seen him become a viral sensation on Spotify landing on influential playlists virtually overnight. His authentic, off-the-cuff style has resonated with listeners around the world amassing millions of streams. “I never wanted to make anything that was based on a trend. It’s exciting to have the freedom to really choose who I want to be and what I want to say. My goal is to make music that people can connect with.” There’s a palpable energy on singles “Papercuts,” “lowercase,” and “2AM,” as honest lyrics reflect on the perils of youth and “letting your heart do all the thinking.” Conrath’s uptempo groove full of glistening guitar licks and late-night revelations have been praised by the likes of Early Rising, The Current, and more. Landon uses music to grapple with his uncertainty. He graduated college in the midst of the pandemic, found a new relationship, and signed a record deal with Nettwerk. Through it all, he’s found a way to stay true to himself.
