Ep. #57: Steph Yates of Esther Grey

Steph Yates is a talented singer, guitarist, and songwriter who plays in a Guelph-based band called Esther Grey. The scrappy, artful rock band has been together a few years now and earlier this fall they released a new single called Buttermilk. On Thursday Dec. 5, Esther Grey join Dusted and Marine Dreams at Stay Out of the Mall XII, a benefit for the Canadian Cancer Society towards leukemia research taking place at the Ebar (41 Quebec St.) in Guelph. Steph joined me during a live broadcast on CFRU 93.3 FM and she and I discussed high school basketball, being tall, getting into music, being shy, opening for Sebadoh, sleeping all day, drinking coffee, getting over performance anxiety, playing rock music, living in Waterloo and Guelph, the importance of music communities, the merits of band tension, the songs “Buttermilk” and “Night Calls,” and more.
