YellowTieGuy “Information” Lyric Video Conveys Music With a Message

This DIY, yet official lyric video was produced by YellowTieGuy bassist Jamie Rasmussen featuring the lyrics from the July 2020 release of “Information” written and released with the intention of drawing attention to racial disparities within the United States, and to the importance of learning to live peaceably with those whose beliefs differ from ours. The song also speaks on how social media is lacking in its ability to provide a healthy discourse for listening, learning, and sharing personal views about important topics.

In addition, the second single from forthcoming YellowTieGuy album The Inevitable Unexpected was just released today. You can hear “I Cry” on Spotify (below) and you can get more details about all YTG releases at
