“Want to hear a great song? (I mean a REALLY great song?)” – John Mayer, one forty plus
Born and Raised in London, Ontario, Ken Yates moved to Boston to study songwriting at Berklee College of Music. It was there that he developed his skills as a songwriter, releasing his first CD, “The Backseat EP”, and receiving the opportunity to play a song for one of his biggest influences, John Mayer. Mayer even posted a full page blog about Yates’ ability as a writer stating, “Ken Yates wrote a song called ‘I Don’t Wanna Fall In Love’… this song moved me when I first heard it and still does today”. Yates’ EP received high critical acclaim, leading to a slew of online covers from fans. He has played numerous shows with veteran singer/songwriter and mentor, Livingston Taylor and is now in heavy rotation on Sirius XM’s The Coffee House. He now lives living in New York where he is working on a full length album.
