You know those wooden decoys duck hunters use? If they could be songs, Ken Yates is carving out mallards so real, they're literally flying off into the morning sun. Hailing from London Ontario, Ken Yates' songwriting is air tight: canonical folk poetry, brimming with warmth, heart, and unwavering confidence. Yates' latest album Huntsville, was produced by Ottawa's favourite son, Jim Bryson, and wouldn't be out of place alongside Bryson's timeless catalogue. A Berklee College of Music grad, Ken is the recent winner of not one, but TWO Canadian Folk Music Awards, and with good reason: this is golden-hour Canadiana you can stoke the fire to, all night long.
