Johnny Yates


I am a undergraduate student at Surrey University studying Music and Creative Technology and I'm starting my year 2 in October.

I'm a versatile musician that can adapt to anything that will need to be learnt and enjoy playing to many artists like Justin Timberlakes R&B and pop style, to the progressive rock from Dream Theater etc.

I'm also a composer using musical software (Logic Pro) which I arrange genres like electronica, film, pop, drum 'n' bass, rock etc
