A computer scientist, music producing fellow, Yarley Geffrard was destined to bring positivity back into the world of music. A migrant from Haiti, who faced some of the dangers and hardships of his homeland from his youth, Yarley’s passion for music has manifested from his youth ‘til now. Holding degrees in audio engineering, music, and creative design, Yarley credits a large part of his passion [for music] to his upbringing. Starting out playing the saxophone in church bands and strategically holding his own in various school bands, Yarley has shaped and transformed his talent and is now ready to share it with the world.
When asked why he chose to engage in such a field, Yarley simply stated, “the soul and beauty that comes from music takes me to [Z-space]; a colorful universe within me, that I am only at the tip of exploring.” Music for Yarley is more than just a field, it’s more than just a talent; it’s apart of who he is and that’s what enables him to make his statement in this industry.
Over the course of several years, he has produced countless tracks and full songs, which have been featured on some of the top mainstream networks such as MTV, BET, Oxygen, and The Style Network. But it doesn’t stop there, Yarley has also composed for several high-end commercials including theme song for Frosted Flakes, Chevy, and Smirnoff. He has also been awarded the best ‘Mix and Master of a Song’ by the Institute Of Audio Research.
Yarley once said “in order to build [a] legacy, one must create something that no one else has created.” And he is doing just that. His ultimate goal is to show the importance of music and art around the globe, with the hope of helping those unable to explore the joy of creating music.
Though he has a few artists under his belt, Yarley is currently working on a co-venture with Martial Arts/Hip-Hop artist Zig Short, as well as partnering with the LuxtreauxTM Brands.
Multi-genre producer Yarley G who has produced tracks for a number of television shows releases the first video, Super Alo Fragilistic off of his upcoming music project. It's a song that carries a very positive message that everyone is "Amazing" in their own way. The video starts off with an acoustic performance with vocals by Gio accompanied by a warm piano and classical strings, then suddenly hits a spin with an EDM vibe over the famous 'talkbox' vocal instrument, which has been used on #1 songs by J Cole and Bruno Mars.
You might not know his name but you have probably heard his music on your favorite television shows. With credits that include most recently placements on CBS’ hit show Hawaii Five 0 Yarley G has been producing music that has been setting the atmosphere for many of the most memorable moments on tv shows. But now, Yarley has decided to enter the consumer music world to reach fans of his music directly.
“Writing music for shows is wonderful. You get to help paint the scene for show, but ultimately the feeling, the mood, what a person sees is created and almost dictated through the show’s director’s eyes or vision. I always wanted to see what people would get from my music without the filter of TV. If it was just given to them or I had more control of the visual."
