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.

"Ken Yates' music is solid as stone and clear as mountain air." - Livingston Taylor
