"Want to hear a great song? (I mean a REALLY great song?)" -- John Mayer
"Ken Yates' music is solid as stone and clear as mountain air. He proves the future is in very good shape." -- Livingston Taylor
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". He has toured with many notable names including veteran singer/songwriter and mentor, Livingston Taylor, Sister Hazel, Peter Katz and Liz Longley and was nominated for Sirius XM's The Coffee House Songwriter Discovery of the Year.
Raised in the small upstate New York town of Monroe, folk rock singer/songwriter Brian Dunne's music is characterized by sharp lyrical prowess and country-influenced vocals, his roots winding through the sound and style of his songwriting and performing. After graduating from the Berklee College of Music in 2011, Brian moved to New York City where he currently resides. The Brooklyn Bridge EP, which charted on the US iTunes singer/songwriter charts and received praise from artists such as John Mayer and many others, is his latest release.
When asked about his goals pertaining to his music, he says, "I would like nothing more than to spend my time sharing this music with people. Above all else."
