Live and Livin' - Alive and Lovin'

Announcing the second appearance at Live Lounge this year of Lloyd Yates and his band, supported by The Healers and Jackson Lee. They are one of the most industrious musical crews in Jersey with shows lined up for 2009 including appearances at Ha’penny Bridge, Arts Centre, Blue Note, and the Vale Earth Festival in Guernsey.

Band members are Lloyd Yates (vocals, guitar and stomping), Mehdi Padidar (guitar), Scott Keane (bass), Paul Olivier (percussion) and Alex Moody (drums).

Offstage sixth member is Wilson, a recording engineer and sound designer noted for his artistic multimedia experiments as Cowshed Acoustics.

Lloyd Yates writes and performs songs influenced by the likes of John Butler Trio and Ben Harper; a mix of sensitive, gently psychedelic balladry and hypnotic, percussion-propelled groove workouts. His band’s fusion of jazz, soul, folk, and funk is a rare and inspiring treat for all lovers of music played with passion and integrity.
