The Best of Silicon Valley 2017 – Features & Columns

The child of Chinese immigrants who moved to Silicon Valley from Beijing, Saratoga native Yvette Young had a musically rigorous childhood. Classically trained from a very young age, her parents onced pushed her to continue playing the piano through the pain of a broken pinkie finger. She's still great on 88 keys, but Young's real passion is six strings. She absolutely shreds on guitar and now leads the local instrumental rock trio Covet. When the band last spoke with Metro for a cover story in January, they were about to embark on a nationwide tour and record labels were in hot pursuit to have them sign. Believe it-they've got what it takes.
