New Project: Team YACHT

Posted on February 18, 2009


Jona Bechtolt, shareholder, co-founder of UrbanHonking, and design consultant on KmikeyM, has offered Mike Merrill a position with YACHT, his all-encompassing band, life-project, and multi-media undertaking.

Bechtolt and Merrill have a long history of collaboration, starting with UrbanHonking in 2001 and continuing to the present day. This shareholder vote would make official Merrill's role in spending time and energy assisting and advising Bechtolt on the wide variety of activities that fall under the YACHT umbrella, including web development, curation, concept development, PR and writing exercises, and extensive note-taking.

While much of the work will be "behind the scenes", the scope of this particular project will fall during the release and subsequent support of the upcoming YACHT album, See Mystery Lights. Rewards include, but are not limited to: travel opportunities, the ability to flex new creative muscles, and potential high-profile networking opportunities within music and multimedia arts circles.
