Fresh Cherries From Yakima

Fresh Cherries From Yakima is Douglas Martin, a Seattle based singer/songwriter. FCFY is a band with a revolving cast of characters [i.e. bright eyes, iron & wine] and is pretty much a lo-fi acoustic affair, with very focused emphasis on the lyrics. He just recently finished a FREE ep titled The North Caroline EP that he recorded on his own, mostly in his living room.

The songs that I've heard show obvious influences such as Neutral Milk Hotel and The Decemberists. Douglas Martin is a very promising songwriter and you should definitely check him out.
