Biography

The Yum Yum Tree, the brainchild of Texas transplant Andy Gish, has been an edgy pop mainstay in Atlanta since its inception in 2000. Known for its infectious pop (some may say “confectuous” – the band distributes candy at its shows), the band’s name has become synonymous with catchy hooks and crunchy guitars.

The band’s rise in 2000-2002 was meteoric, going from four-track sketches to regular rotation in a matter of weeks. – even before a regular lineup was in place! Eventually, permanent members were installed, an EP was recorded, and the band became a popular live draw around Atlanta.

The band would release its first full release, Reverse Engines, in 2002, to much critical acclaim. The record made the Best of 2002 lists in both the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and Creative Loafing, and dented college radio playlists around the country. The band was also cited for its energetic live performances.

After a series of lineup changes, the band released The Tetherball EP in 2005. Again, the record was received favorably at home and abroad, showing that the band’s early success was no fluke.

2007 marks the release of the band’s second full-length record, and its first on the Two Sheds label. Paint by Numbers was recorded by Jason NeSmith (of Casper & the Cookies) at his Bel Air Studios in Athens, and was mixed by Curt Wells at Big Ed’s Used Farms in Atlanta. The artwork features the fabulous “One Tree Hill” by Yi Wen Seow of New Zealand.
