Bookmark and Share

It is with great pleasure that we introduce you to an incredible new artist, Francesco Yates. Francesco is an eighteen year-old singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Toronto, Canada. His musical influences range from classic rock legends such as Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin & Freddie Mercury of Queen to timeless soul powerhouses, Donny Hathaway & Stevie Wonder. On his debut album he has enlisted the help of heavy-hitting producers Pharrell Williams and Robin Hannibal of Rhye/Quadron (Kendrick Lamar, B.O.B.).

Leading up to the launch of his first single, Francesco Yates has already garnered attention from VICE Magazine, Complex, NME, MTV, Buzzfeed and The Huffington Post to name a few, and has performed with JoJo for The Fader Magazine's Vitamin Water #Uncapped series. Francesco's musical talent is also featured on Pharrell's critically acclaimed 2014 album, G I R L, as he plays lead guitar on "Gust of Wind" featuring Daft Punk.

The lead single, "Call," is produced by Robin Hannibal and written by Francesco Yates and Matt Morris. The video is directed by DJay Brawner.

Francesco will accompany Texas R&B phenomenon SoMo as a special guest on his North American 'WIDE AWAKE' tour, slated to get underway October 4 at Nashville's Marathon Music Works and then continue through November (see attached/below itinerary). For up-to-the-minute details, please visit http://francescoyates.com/tour.

In more news, the global clothing retailer, UNIQLO has just announced their global "Faces of Fall Winter 2014 'People' Campaign which will include Francesco. This campaign will celebrate the launch of new store openings in Boston, Los Angeles & Philadelphia. The campaign features a 'cast of forward thinking, socially conscious next generation icons in arts, tech, sports and entertainment." This campaign will be featured in print, online and social media platforms.
