Watch & Listen
Born and Raised in London, Ontario, Ken Yates moved to Boston to study songwriting at Berklee College of Music. It was there that he developed his skills as a songwriter, releasing his first CD, "The Backseat EP", and receiving the opportunity to play a song for one of his biggest influences, John Mayer. Mayer even posted a full page blog about Yates' ability as a writer stating, "Ken Yates wrote a song called 'I Don't Wanna Fall In Love'… this song moved me when I first heard it and still does today". Yates' EP received high critical acclaim, leading to a slew of online covers from fans. He has played numerous shows with veteran singer/songwriter and mentor, Livingston Taylor and is now in heavy rotation on Sirius XM's The Coffee House. He now lives in New York where he is working on a full length album.

An FTC favorite over the years, Sirius/XM "Singer/Songwriter Discovery of the Year" nominee Jeff LeBlanc returns to StageOne; this time with his full band.
Soon after his graduation from Sacred Heart University, his first single, "Until We Get It Right" entered into the rotation of Sirius/XM's The Coffee House, giving him enough exposure to headline a 60-date college tour where he was praised as everything from "the new John Mayer" to an artist "perfectly in tune with his audience."
His latest record, "Worth Holding On To", was self-released in August of 2011 and gained national attention by quickly rising to #3 on the iTunes Top 200 Singer/Songwriter Chart. The enthusiasm for the record and his frequent touring led him to be hand picked by David Archuleta to support his "My Kind of Christmas Tour"; where the two embarked cross-country on a full month of dates.
Along the way, Jeff has also been called upon to open for household names like the Goo Goo Dolls, Shelby Lynne, Matt Nathanson and Chris Isaak as well as rising stars such as Ingrid Michaelson, Eric Hutchinson and Karmin.
