Why?

    Why? (stylized WHY?) is an American hip hop and indie rock band. Originally the moniker of Berkeley, California artist Jonathan "Yoni" Wolf, WHY? became a full band before their 2005 release Elephant Eyelash with Doug McDiarmid and Matt Meldon, as well as Yoni's older brother, Josiah Wolf.

    Why? (stylized WHY?) is an American hip hop and indie rock band. Originally the moniker of Berkeley, California artist Jonathan "Yoni" Wolf, WHY? became a full band before their 2005 release Elephant Eyelash with Doug McDiarmid and Matt Meldon, as well as Yoni's older brother, Josiah Wolf.

    When Matt Meldon left, the band became a three-piece, with Yoni as the primary songwriter and an additional keyboardist at live concerts. In 2008, the group added bassist Austin Brown to their lineup, making them a four-piece once again. In their arrangements, WHY? leans more toward folk and indie rock, as opposed to the more hip hop styling of their label-mates. Their lyrics also tend to be very abstract, focusing more on imagery than on any particular story.

    WHY? is also a member of the Anticon collective of Oakland, California. « hide
