Vocation, career, calling: September is a discerning time for college students. The change of season inspires students to assess signs of progress in themselves, others and in creation. As college students follow their dreams this month, Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity invite them to reflect on Ken Yates’ song.

Born and Raised in London, Ontario, Ken Yates moved to Boston to study songwriting at Berklee College of Music. There he developed his songwriting skills, releasing his first CD, “The Backseat EP”, and received 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 toured with many notable names including veteran singer/songwriter and mentor, Livingston Taylor, Sister Hazel, Peter Katz, and Liz Longley and has songs in heavy rotation on Sirius XM’s The Coffee House where he was nominated for The Coffee House Songwriter Discovery of the Year.

His debut full length album “23” recorded in Holland and produced by Joren van der Voort is available now with Mishara Music.

Established in 1869, the Roman Catholic Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity serve in Catholic Health Care, Education and Parish-Community Service in the Southwest, Central and Upper Midwest.
