Westone endorsed artist YB is one of the most wildly popular bands in South Korea and the band is quickly gaining popularity around the world. YB (also known as Yoonband or Yoon Do Hyun Band) consists of 5 members, Yoon Do Hyun, Huh Joon, Kim Jin Won, Park Tae Hee, and Scott Hellowell. The band wears Westone in-ear monitors on stage.
YB has released nine albums and one DVD to date and has toured around the world performing in Asia, Europe and North America. These international rock stars have already accomplished so much, including the “Best Music Award” from top radio stations in South Korea and winning the title of “Best Musician” due to their immensely successful concerts and albums.
YB was recently named “Korea’s Biggest Rock Band” by the United States Revolver magazine. The acoustic version of their first English language single, “Cigarette Girl” caught the attention of the magazine and to be mentioned by Revolver is a great honor for any band in the industry. For those who are not familiar with the magazine, Revolver releases 2 issues a month and each magazine features only the best artists in the rock and heavy metal scene.
On the YB’s official website, lead singer Yoon Do Hyun reflects on their success in 2013 and discusses what is in store for them in the coming year. He says, “What kind of year will 2014 be for me and YB? There is one thing that I can do. Just do the best in every single moment.” That is a great mentality for any artist, and Westone is proud to support YB along their journey.
