Bernadette left The Long Goners to form Bernadette Seacrest and her Yes Men in 2003. The band released their debut album "No More Music by the Suckers"[2] in 2004. After touring extensively throughout the United States and France the band released a second album in 2005 "Live in Santa Fe."

In 2007 she was awarded the critic's pick Best Atlanta Vocalist[3] in Atlanta's long established alternative press publication Creative Loafing. The new group released their debut album "The Filthy South Sessions" in December 2009. The album was well received in a number of published reviews.
