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.

New Video, concerts and more

Happy New Year!

We’re looking forward to playing at the Rose & Kettle Concert Series on Thursday Jan. 23rd. This great series has hosted some amazing artists over the years and are fortunate to have a spot for ourselves. We are putting the finishing touches on some new tunes that we plan to debut with the wonderfully attentive audiences they draw. Admission is ‘by the boot’, which they literally pass around at intermission. Tasty treats, coffee and tea are available here at the Rose and Kettle Tearoom at the Cole Harbour Rural Heritage Farm, 471 Poplar Drive, just off of Otago Drive in Cole Harbour. Arrive early for a good seat!

Also upcoming is the ROCA House Spring Sessions including:

And finally, we have a new video! Robert did some editing and put this new video together of one of our cover tunes – Landslide, by Stevie Nicks, Fleetwood Mac. This video was recorded at the Westacres House Concert in BC, June 2013.

We’ve got video!

Vote daily to help us get a spot at Stan Rogers FestivalRobert has been very busy learning how to splice and dice video and here’s the first one! The footage was taken at a house concert in Maple Ridge last June. Paul Benekritis shot the film, Greg Stewart recorded the whole thing, and here it is.

Video is so important to musicians today. It’s how we get known and show the people who matter that we have fans so we can get booked for gigs. We’ve submitted this video to the Stan Rogers Festival and we need votes to get in. LOTS of votes. Luckily, you can vote every day if you wanted to. Just click on the video and click ‘Like’. Share it up on Facebook to your friends, too, if you have a mind. That would be the best gift we could ever get for Christmas!

In the meantime, we have a gift for you! A few years back, we recorded a simple Christmas CD at our friend Greg Stewart’s place. It was originally intended as a little Christmas gift for friends and family and we’d like you to have it, too! Click here to download one or all of the songs. And have a very Merry Christmas!

Robert & Cailin
