Artist of the Month: Doc Yates


Raised in the country outside of Woodstock, ON, Doc Yates grew up living the life that we hear about in our favourite songs. And that life is reflected in his own music as Yates paves his way in the industry.

Now in Ottawa, and having developed his own sound – labeled Soul Country, Yates and the Kings Evil are dedicated to making their music the way they want to and the results are a whole lot of fun. Tracks like Four Fingers Of Whiskey and All That I Needed are great listens (find them on his website now), combining lyrics and musicianship to make toe-tapping songs that will make you want more.

And more is coming…

Doc Yates is working on his first full length album, to be released to Canadian country radio, and hopes to have you listening as you drive through Ontario. And while the album will showcase a selection of songs from Yates, he still has dozens of songs written and ready.

In fact, he may just write one today if he has to get in the truck and drive.

“If I am driving 2 hours or more, then I will most likely have a song done by the time I arrive.” – Doc Yates

Yates continues to work on music videos, the studio process for his new album, and his songwriting, knowing that the work is the process. He’s embraced it, keeps pushing, and we’ll be ready when it’s time to listen.

If you’re in the Ottawa area, keep your eyes open for Doc Yates shows near you and follow him through his social media updates for details about his new music, new videos, live performances and more!
