A musical triple threat: strong lyrics, vocals, and pickin'
For bluegrass artist Rebecca Frazier, the guitar has always been a means of transporting her, whether to a different state of mind, to a campfire bluegrass circle, or onto the stage of one of the hundred-plus festivals at which she has performed.

During an eight-year stay in Colorado, Rebecca co-founded Hit & Run Bluegrass, an award-winning, Boulder-based outfit, which made history by becoming the first band to win both prestigious band competitions at Rockygrass (2002) and Telluride Bluegrass Festival (2003).

By 2007, Rebecca had married and relocated to Nashville, where Hit & Run took advantage of a more centralized touring base. Months later, her husband John was offered a position in the John Cowan Band. "I knew I couldn't make the leap into motherhood while I was practically living on the interstate and at festivals." A baby boy was born and Hit & Run continued to tour, albeit not full-time. Rebecca continued her studio work and she used her spare time to write.

"Rebecca Frazier is a triple threat. She is a wonderfully engaging singer, a compelling songwriter and an accomplished guitarist to boot." - Alison Brown

Song Samples: When We Fall
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
