ABOUT ME

Deon Yates began his solo career in 2009 when he competed against up and coming contemporary jazz artist from all over the United States at the Capital Jazz Challenge in Columbia, MD. Although he did not win the competition, he was named runner up. This gave him the drive and determination to pursue his solo career further.

 

“QUINTASTIC” is the culmination of nearly 10 years of paying dues, relationship building and persistence. The word quintastic is a noun. The definition is “a person who is aged fifty or more and is still attractive and successful, especially someone famous.” This titled was chosen because Deon turned 50 in June of 2018, this is his 5th solo project and there are 5 songs on the EP.

 

Every track is a radio single,” according to Yates.

“Quintastic takes you on a musical journey through different moods and scapes and delivers a bit of sonic seduction with tracks like ”The Calm Before,” featuring Nate Harasim and Lin Rountree. The title track, written and produced by Darren Rahn, is a quintessential Smooth Jazz vibe made especially for radio. “When We Meet Again,” a tribute to Deon’s mother, is a light Pop infused gem penned by Jackiem Joyner who also wrote, Deon’s homage to the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Black Panther, “The Night.” A hard hitting driving tune to cruise to with your top down.”

 

“No Other Love” is the first single released to radio and was written and produced by Chris “Big Dog” Davis. This tune was made with the steppers in mind. So come on and join us on this Smooth Jazz Ride!
