Check out some of his music at http://www.reverbnation.com/yohe

David Yohe was first introduced to hip hop when he bought two cassette singles. 2pac “Dear Mama” and Shaq “I’m Outstanding”. It wasn’t long until he memorized every line and would rap along to the tracks. He would ride his bike to the store every Tuesday and buy the new hip hop releases. The music became his passion. He would write lyrics and listen to music whenever possible. After awhile he stopped writing but continued to listen to the music, with influences ranging from hip hop and R&B to heavy metal, rock, and country.

He met producer/beat maker Austen “Koncept” Medek working at Best Buy in 2009. This was the first time he had ever met anybody who shared the same passion and also had the talent to make music. David then realized that it was time to act. He began writing again. Shortly after, one of his best friends Ryan Justus suddenly passed away. He spend 5 months writing a tribute song in his memory. Although it was one of the hardest things he ever had to do, he felt that it was what Ryan would have wanted and also it was a way of paying his respects. David views meeting Austen and dealing with the loss of his friend Ryan as the two biggest life events that led him to pursue his dream. Its not about chasing money or fame. Its about waking up and putting in work every day knowing that you are doing what you were born to do. Doing what makes you happy. David Yohe was born to make music.
