Yuri Méndez is a songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist based in Madrid.
His debut album Pajaro Sunrise, made in collaboration with Pepe López, was released in late 2006 and gathered critical praise both in and outside his native Spain, with domestic releases in South Korea and Japan.In 2008, the band split up while working on the follow-up. Yuri finished the record on his own, and Done / Undone came out in 2009 as a double LP. Third album Old Goodbyes (2011) was recorded mostly live and meant «a rupture, a break with the past.»On 2013's Kulturkatzenjammer Yuri wrote, played, mixed and produced everything except for a few drum tracks with a way more electronic and experimental approach than his previous releases.2016 saw the release of two double albums: Oh My (Lost Songs 2006-2016), a collection of previously unreleased songs and new material which included the award-winning “A Different Scene”, and The Collapse, co-produced by and featuring Bart Davenport, as well as Shawn Lee, Charlie Bautista and Javier Jiménez.
His seventh album, W, written, performed, produced and mixed entirely by Yuri (albeit with help from Jesús Montes and Juan Diego Gosalvez on bass and drums on some of the tracks) came out in October, 2018.
Yuri’s songs have been featured on movie soundtracks and series worldwide such as The Big C, Castle or The Missing Lynx and TV ads for Vodafone, Mercedes Benz, Hyundai or Unicef.
