The Breaking Yard is a Portland, Oregon based quintet whose intricate instrumentation, haunting harmonies and swelling energy has enthralled many audiences throughout the United States. Primary songwriters Mel and Stephen Baker have drawn from differing musical backgrounds and influences to write songs full of musical and lyrical vibrancy that have been described by many as, “cinematic" and "healing."

While in the very beginning The Breaking Yard was an acoustic duo with guitars and voices, the band’s sound---while maintaining its intimate nature---has ramped and evolved into a torrent of musical parts. The band of multi-instrumentalists uses the violin, hammered dulcimer, glockenspiel, drums, chains, electric guitar, harmonium, bass and 8-string ukelele to create a beautiful and powerful experience.
