T.E. Yates (think Nick Drake with a touch of Roy Orbson)
See event details
Unassuming, unusual and enigmatic, T.E. Yates is a multi-disciplinary artist of rare and disarming qualities that must be seen and heard to be believed.
Most musicians boast of exploding onto their local scene in a glittering blaze of media hype and spontaneous applause. T.E. Yates, however, snuck in through an open window.
BBC Radio Manchester described Yates' first single as "Nick Drake's 'Hazy Jane' with a touch of Roy Orbison" and he has also received airplay on BBC Radio 6 Music courtesy of Tom Robinson. Yates' first completed animated work, Evil Cat - a faithful adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe's The Black Cat synchronised to the music of the song from my debut EP - was shortlisted for Best Music Video at the 2016 British Animation Awards.
After an absence of around a year and a half, Tom will be rejoined by vocalist Sarah-Jane Pearson, who has very recently toured Europe and the UK singing with John Grant and will be coming to Hare on the Hill immediately following a European tour with Novo Amor.
