Kickstarter Campaign

We’re recording a new CD and need your help!

We are deep in the makings of a new CD and need your help to finish it. The costs of production, studio time, musician time, CD manufacturing and promo, costs well over $10,000. We are doing our best to pay as much of it as we can ourselves, but it is a daunting task so we’ve initiated a ‘KickStarter Campaign‘.. Since moving to Nova Scotia two and a half years ago to be closer to a thriving music scene (and cheaper housing), it has been a struggle to adjust to being full-time musicians and artists. But it’s where our passion lies and we believe it’s all worth it. Below is a sampler from the studio and…

What we have so far are the bones of six songs tracked and ready for vocals, and at least four more songs in the works waiting to be tracked. Since our last album two years ago, we have spent much effort on honing our skills as songwriters, attending songwriting camps and SAC (Songwriters Association of Canada) meetings, working on our craft as best we can. The result is a much stronger album and songs that we are incredibly excited about and we can’t wait to share them with you. We are thrilled to be working with producer Jamie Robinson again, who is playing all the guitar tracks as well, along with Adam Dowling on drums as before, and newcomer to our fold, Ron Hynes on bass. Extremely talented players all round. We know you’ll be impressed!

So any and all help is much appreciated, and from the bottom of our hearts, with much gratitude, thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Welcoming in 2015…

Happy New Year! We had a great break over Christmas! We turned off all the electronic devices in our world, except for our home phone of course, from Christmas through New Years! It was good to disconnect and get ready for the studio in the coming weeks.
But, just before Christmas, we recorded a couple of seasonal songs with Jimmie Inch.
Jimmie produces the “Sessions” TV show. Here’s what happened at our house…

We got a FACTOR Grant !! :-) The Foundation to Asssist Canadian Talent on Recordings provides great opportunities for new and established artists. We applied for, and received, a grant to produce some demo work. We wrote about this in relation to the writing and music process and ended up having it published online here.

Gigs coming up!

Can’t wait!  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 received 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 toured with many notable names including veteran singer/songwriter and mentor, Livingston Taylor, Sister Hazel, Peter Katz, and Liz Longley and has songs in heavy rotation on Sirius XM’s The Coffee House where he was nominated for The Coffee House Songwriter Discovery of the Year. His debut full length album twenty-three, recorded in Holland and produced by Joren van der Voort is available now with Mishara Music
