“I have said Yates is proof of reincarnation, only a very old and experienced soul could make his kind of art. Yes, he’s been around plenty before, and he’s giving it to this world again, just getting started being timeless.”                                   Gary Nicholson

 === 

I have been watching Yates on You Tube for about a year, wondering when his Dad would get an album out on him.  They have done a fine job of it, allowing Yates to be a one-man-band on some original tracks, but bringing in seasoned studio players like Big Joe Maher on others. 

 

Creating a deluxe period frame for each of the influential artists Yates covers here, his amazing grasp of finesse and stylistic subtleties is almost innuendo-fine.  Differing between B.B. King, Earl King and T-bone Walker with ease, his respect for each artist holds up even when he hits the gas on some of the phrases as is de rigueur in live blues shows, and he possesses a lot of inflection in his young voice.  Calling Yates McKendree promising would be criminally under-serving his potential.

Born in Nashville and raised in a recording studio, multi-instrumentalist Yates McKendree grew up hearing and playing with many great musicians. Self taught from the age 3, music came to him naturally.

 

Although just 21 years old, his experience as a professional musician goes back 10+ years. That early experience includes playing regularly in some of Nashville’s most notable venues (The Bluebird Cafe, The Ryman Auditorium, 3rd & Lindsley). It also includes North American and European tours and multiple appearances on national television (Imus In The Morning, CBS Mornings).

During Yates’s high school years, he played on and engineered many recording projects; most notably for Delbert McClinton and John Hiatt, who told Rolling Stone Magazine, “Yates was our secret ingredient.” In January 2020, Yates earned a Grammy™ Award for his role as an engineer and a musician on Delbert McClinton’s “Tall Dark & Handsome.”

 

His debut LP “Buchanan Lane” on the Qualified Records label released on October 28, 2022 to critical acclaim worldwide. The album features both classic tunes and 4 original compositions, 2 of which's Yates co-wrote  with stellar Nashville Songwriter Hall of Fame 2022 inductee and multi-Grammy winner Gary Nicholson. Produced with his father, Kevin McKendree, “Buchanan Lane” highlights Yates’ skills, remarkable style and taste as a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist with an emphasis on guitar.
