Deborah Yates

Bio: DEBORAH YATES, Vortex Tribe’s elegant and regal leader, thrills crowds with her spirited fluting and commanding presence. Accepted into her first symphony orchestra at the age of 13, Deborah was touring Europe at 16, playing piccolo with symphonic orchestras. Her classical talents earned her featured performances at the Brandenburgh Hall in Vienna, Austria, for Austria’s President, and a solo at Carnegie Hall. Deborah attended the University of Northern Colorado, on full scholarship, as one of the youngest students to be accepted into the Music Performance Program. Deborah has performed with symphony orchestras worldwide, musical theater, ballet orchestras, chamber ensembles, solo performance, and symphonic bands. Now Deborah has trained her sights on the explosive expressionism in Jazz, Rock and Latin music with the unorthodox approach of using guitar pedals and effects to enhance her sound. She played flute throughout Britain and the Bay Area, performed weekly at Jagz at the Station in Acscot, England, and played the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland, before piloting the Vortex Tribe around the world. She has just completed her third South Pacific tour throughout the beautiful opera houses of New Zealand and the South Pacific. Deborah’s duet – Due Cuori has been performing and recently opened for the great Al DiMeola in Los Angeles. Her last album, Avenger, was a Due Cuori release on TwoHearts Records featuring Tony Levin, and Marquinho Brasil. She tours and performs with Jon Mulvey and Stuart Hamm of Joe Satriani and Prairie Prince from The Tubes. Deborah is endorsed with RS Berkeley and performs on their Volare flutes. Currently, Deborah is in the studio recording her first solo record, Warrior Queen which will feature all original music celebrating women warrior queens from ancient civilizations. This project will feature flutes and pieces from around the world, is an all girl project (minus her partner, Jon). It includes oboe and English horn, harp, percussion, and beautiful artwork.
