After a successful first run, the Yinz Citizen virtual concert will return this fall. For artists and bands from Pittsburgh who wanted to perform last year but missed it, submissions are currently open for the 2021 event.

Acts confirmed so far for the September virtual concert include Derek Woods Band, who recently received prestigious awards at the Hollywood Music in Media Awards, and Alt / Punk Band Swiss Army.

“We came to Yinz Citizen because we believe that there is nothing better in Pittsburgh than music, neighbors and food,” says Brandon Lehman, singer with the Swiss Army. “This event provides a killer platform to experience music, togetherness and education as 412 Food Rescue continues to keep good food out of landfills and on the plates of those in need. I can not wait any longer! “

Inspired by Lady Gaga’s Global Citizen concert, Yinz Citizen was founded to celebrate that neighbors are there for neighbors. The event raises money for local nonprofit 412 Food Rescue, and last year performances by 25 local bands and artists, along with eight celebrity guest appearances, raised $ 54,000.

For producer and singer-songwriter INEZ, Yinz Citizen was one of her 2020 highlights.

“I said ‘yes’ because I did something to support the people of Pittsburgh, but I was blown away by how many beautiful people from all walks of life and talent in Pittsburgh were part of Yinz Citizen,” said Yinz Citizen she says. “It felt amazing to be one of that number and I would love to do it again.”

Derek Woods, front man for the Derek Woods Band, says he’s looking forward to this year’s event too.

“The Derek Woods Band is very grateful for performing for this year’s Yinz Citizen and for contributing to our continued efforts to uplift our community,” said Woods. “We are one and stronger together.”
