Doctor by day... Soul Country Front Man by night!
Doc Yates was raised on a small farm in the outskirts of Woodstock Ontario, brought up on a road where three generations of the Yates family has been born and raised. Doc is actually Dr. Seth Yates BSc. N.D. and is the owner of the Yates Naturopathic Clinic with 4 locations.
Though Doc came into music late in life, he quickly made the decision to play his music, his way. In a time where few artists write or play their own music, Doc strives to keep his unique sound and lyrical writing real and authentic.
His songs are inspired by his experiences, his country upbringing and the stories of joy and loss that he hears from his patients everyday .
Most of his music has a rootsy blues undertone with a country twist, a sound that Doc has labelled Soul Country.
