Yokko

Born January 15th 1985 in Berne, Switzerland, he spent most of his childhood behind the drums. As a well-behaved boy, he only left his drumset to give his neighbours a short break. From the very first day, he took lessons with Stefan Kurzo (i.a. drummer at Beijing Symphony Orchestra). Just months later, he competed in several drumset-Championships in Switzerland successfully.

Today he is the drummer of the Post-Indie Band «YOKKO». Founded in 2010 and named as Rockstar Magazine's «Band To Watch» in 2011, YOKKO signed an US-Label deal just months later. Since then, YOKKO won a Swiss Music Award as «Best Talent», were nominated as «Best Live Act» and released two Albums «Seven Seas» (Top 10 Album Charts) and «To the fighters. To the boxers.» (2nd Place Album Charts) as well as two EP's «Soliva I & II» with Muve Recordings. 

YOKKO performed with international artists including White Lies, Nada Surf, Kensington, Mike + The Mechanics and The Temper Trap. They played over 400 Headline-Shows in Europe and Japan.
