Welcome back to another episode of Behind The Dream! Watch and listen in as we interview accomplished dreamrs from around the world – from entrepreneurs to artists and visionaries of all kinds. They share wisdom from their experiences about how to chase a dream that we can all apply on our own journey.
On this episode we sit down with a group of four High School friends from Minnesota that all quit their day jobs to pursue their childhood dreams as musicians and formed together to create their own band, Yam Haus. Tune in as we talk about how they got started, filming over 365 daily vlogs on YouTube, and their recent tour with Blue October.

“The ‘Yam’ in our name stands for ‘You are me’,” explains Jake. “It’s our take on treating people well and with empathy. At our live shows, we want anyone to feel like they’re welcome. It’s a space where you don’t have to look a certain way or belong to a certain group. You can just dance and let loose.”
“Personally, we try to live by ‘You are me’,” adds Seth. “It informs so much of what we do as a band. We’re friends first and musicians second. We’ve worked really hard to support each other. That’s our biggest strength. Hopefully, it bleeds into how we support listeners and how they support one another. Being committed to people you care about is a cool thing. I’m grateful my island consists of these three guys. It’s a big piece of our identity.”
