We're honored to announce the newest addition to the Domino family, Your Friend, and her debut EP, Jekyll/Hyde. The release is available digitally now and will be out on CD and 12" on April 8, 2014. 

Watch the Dalton and Austin Paley-directed video for Jekyll/Hyde track 'Tame One' below, which gives a glimpse into Taryn Blake Miller’s (AKA Your Friend) life in her adopted hometown of Lawrence, KS, and performing live with the tight knit community of musicians, some of whom recorded with her on the EP. 

In the fall of 2012, Miller and co-producer Jordan Geiger (Hospital Ships), set out to capture Miller's intimate live energy but with refinements. Though her bare-bones stage show was in high demand, she wanted the songs more fleshed out for the record. Bringing in bass, drums and keyboards, as well as layered guitars and vocals, Miller self-released Jekyll/Hyde in August 2013 to an already devoted fan base that quickly multiplied. For the Domino release, Miller and engineers Danny Bowersox and CJ Calhoun added even more depth with freshly recorded live drums and vocals. The result is a captivating debut that sounds fully realized in its ideal form. 

Pre-order Jekyll/Hyde on CD or 12” from the Domino Mart and receive an instant mp3 download of the entire EP. 

Your Friend will be performing at SXSW and announcing more North American shows soon. All dates are below.
