Trailblazer Lori Yates is a renowned voice in Canadian Roots Music and an original pioneer of "Alternative Country" in Canada. Lori's 8th album - MATADOR - was recorded at Blue Rodeo's Woodshed Studios and co-produced by Tim Vesely of the Rheostatics. The title track, MATADOR, pays homage to the after-hours club made famous in Leonard Cohen's song "Closing Time" and is a protest against gentrification with its infectious chorus "Tear it down, don't tear it down." MATADOR is a rich tapestry of melodic, roots/indie songs highlighting Yates' prowess as a songwriter and singer. Her songs wrap around you like your favourite sweater.

Lori Yates has performed and recorded with music legends, including Colin Linden, Jim Cuddy and Rick Danko (who described Lori Yates as having that desperate Canadian sound)". - Americana UK.
