Country

Profile
Yonder Pond is the brainchild of Swiss drummer Rémy Sträuli. Gaining his chops in numerous bands from Basel, ranging from avant-jazz, glam punk, Zappa tribute, psych and power pop (Yolk, Fido, Spaltklang, The Friendly Neighbours, Fucking Beautiful – to name a few) he considered his 40th birthday to be the right time for his own solo project, which musically takes place in the wondrous world of progressive rock, his first love (along with The Beatles of course).
