LISTEN: Ken Yates, “Fairweather”

Jan 26, 2023

LISTEN: Ken Yates,

Artist: Ken Yates
Hometown: Creemore, Ontario
Song: “Fairweather”
Album: Cerulean (Bonus Tracks)
Release Date: January 27, 2023
Label: Soundly Music

In Their Words: “It was the first song I wrote for Cerulean, but at the very last minute I decided not to record it. I think I felt like thematically it didn’t fit with the other songs, and the slow pace of it might have gotten lost on a 12-track album. But I kept coming back to it, which is usually a sign that a song is worth revisiting as a release, so I sent a demo to producer Dan Ledwell. Hearing it with drums, piano, horns, and Jenn Grant’s lovely harmonies really breathed new life into the song for me, and now I’m really excited to share it with people. The song is about what happens to relationships when someone puts their dreams ahead of the people who love them. Ambition is what drives us to get up every day, but if we don’t nurture our relationships with friends, family, partners, etc., they may not be there for you in your darkest moments.” — Ken Yates
