Get Out Of The Garage 2014 Winners Yorke Drops New Single

Yorke Pic 1YORKE are an Independent band from Durban, South Africa. They were formed early in 2014 and since then have steadily been making a name for themselves in South Africa and abroad.

In 2013 Singer/Song-Writer, Jordi van Dyk, and long time friend and Drummer, Bryn Scott, took part in the ‘Converse Get Out The Garage’ Competition. After making it to the top 10 and going on to win, Converse gave them the enormous opportunity of flying both of them to New York City to have a song recorded at the famous Rubber Tracks Studio in Brooklyn and then on to Paris where they performed at the incredible Café Charbon.
