Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park - 2013, Lloyd Yates

Played

Supported by BBC Introducing in Jersey

Self-taught guitarist and singer Lloyd Yates has been making music since the age of 15 when he first picked up a guitar. The Jersey singer has built quite a fanbase since and is often compared to similarly distinctive singer-songwriters including Ray LaMontagne, Passenger, Ben Howard and Bon Iver.

Lloyd possesses a phenomenal vocal which is both interesting and playful in keeping with his experimental guitar work and beat creation. His EP Bring Back The Life was a fantastic taster of things to come with Radio 1's Rob Da Bank, Xfm's Eddy Temple Morris and BBC Radio 2's Alex Lester among his many admirers.
