Group Background

You and I started in November 1992 as a progressive rock band in Budapest, Hungary. Former friends joined to produce quality music based on the traditions of the progressive bands of the ’70s. Actually, in addition to their own music, You and I’s repertoire includes titles from Yes and Enya as well as folk ballads. Songs are performed both in English and Hungarian. It is worthy to mention the 1994 Yes Memorial Concert. Here the legendary Siberian Khartu, Heart Of The Sunrise, and a Yes "medley"(consists of excerpts from And You And I, Gates Of Delirium, Close To The Edge, Starship Trooper etc.) were performed live for the first time in Hungary. The band believes that some of the best pieces of music in the progressive rock heritage will still be played for many decades, and perhaps centuries, by future generations of musicians, just like pieces of classical music. The combination of this progressive heredity, rich melodies, and thoughtful lyrics provides You and I with a distinct identity. The presence of a female vocalist in a rock band offers many interesting possibilities. Although some of their music cannot be labeled as “progressive rock”, and has a more popular sound, their music as a whole reflects progressivity as a conscious effort to articulate the meaningful. This explains why their concerts are attended and appreciated also by many other musicians. Their present aim is to bring this type of music to many new people.
