Sunday May 10th – 7:30pm to 11pm
Martin Yates, a soulful singer/songwriter from the U.K brings a renewed, fresh and honest element to music that hasn’t been heard in years. Yates, a songwriter unafraid to delve into the depths of the most personal moments in his life, is an artist in a category all by himself. With just 4 singles under his belt, Martin Yates has the ability to not only bring people in by his lyrics, but also the way his voice is undeniably telling a story along with it.
At just 24, Yates is an artist not only known for his songwriting technique, but a raw performer that knows no borders in giving his audience a night to remember. With a sold out show at Birmingham’s ‘The Sunflower Lounge’ in February 2019 and a show at prestigious venue ‘O2 Academy 3 Birmingham’, Martin has honed his craft both in the studio and also live.
With 2017’s much hyped about single ‘Fire In My Heart’, Yates saw himself receiving national radio play, as well as performing up and down the country including shows at various venues around London. The single has become his most known song with his audience.
During 2018, leading into 2019, Yates began work on his debut EP. Working with fresh writing talent including Louis Ryan and Charlie Hole. Those sessions brought the first of two singles in 2019, ‘Now You’re Gone’, and the much anticipated ‘Lay It on Me’. The latter of which ranked up over 60,000 streams on Spotify and receiving national and international radio play in the U.K, Europe and the States.
Martin Yates’ debut EP is due for release in the Spring.
