Yachtclub101 is the moniker of Oakland, CA based artist Scott Ayers who played in several bands including The Lovemakers who had a regional hit. In recent years, he collaborated mostly with other artists and also ran a successful bar which he had to shut down due to Covid-19. His new single, Leave Me Alone, was written during lockdown on which he says the following:
Being trapped inside the last five months and the everyday fear that you might be in a hospital tomorrow on a ventilator made this record a necessary dream of the future. When this crap is over I think people are just gonna want something fun and happy for a while and I plan on bringing that happiness to every single person in the world.
