What would a mixture of Ryan Adams and Bryan Adams
sound like? Well, if they played in a down-home, classic Georgia bar,
complete with an order of Fish n' Chips, then they might sound like
the Alan Yates Band.
This is one of those bands which was born and raised primarily by
and as one man. Alan Yates is that man for this group. It is
his talent that has engineered, mixed, written and performed this
newest release, Red. Following their release of Mint Condition
in 2003, Red has already drawn a lot of good attention. This
attention is slightly due in-part to the excellent "teachers"
Alan has had. Working with artists like Collective Soul and
Shawn Mullins has allowed for him to draw his own inspiration
on top of learning how to make a great album. Red has a combination
of catchy, almost "pop-esque" songs like "Arlington"
and "Wasting Time", with some perfect summer afternoon relaxation
songs, "Can You Hear Me" and "Place In The Sun".
So, you throw Ryan Adams, Bryan Adams, some Collective Soul, a dash
of Shawn Mullins, a hint of Chris Isaac, and a cup of Peter
Gabriel into a blender... And out comes Alan Yates Band, mmmm
