Ian is a Christian worship leader and songwriter from Liverpool, UK, passionate about sharing the good news of Jesus Christ. He is married to Kate, they have 2 young boys, Jackson and Elijah and a baby girl Abiah.
Ian leads musical worship at their home church, Bootle Elim.
Ian has released 4 albums ‘The Hope And The Glory’ May 2010 on Survivor Records ‘Good News’ June 2012 on 7Core Music. ‘DNA’ July 2014 and ‘Awaken to Love’ Sept 2016.
Ian’s 3rd 7Core album release receive glowing reviews. Produced by Trevor Michael and recorded at Martin Smith's 'Bones Studio', the album features the number 1 single High Wire (co-written with Nick Herbert), No Longer I (co-written with Matt Redman and Sam Blake), and also a cover of the Beatles classic 'All You Need Is Love'.
To my mind, Ian Yates is one of the best British worship leaders and songwriters and is up there with the Redman’s and Hughes. Tony Cummings - Cross Rhythms 10/10
Awaken To Love is, quite frankly, a refreshing take on praise, worship, testimony, and encouragement. Chris Major - The Christian Beat 4.6/5
The record feels genuine from start to finish and holds the attention of the listener while still inviting them to get lost in well-crafted moments of worship. Caitlin Lassiter - New Release Today 4/5
This album is track after track of pure quality. Jono Davies - Louder Than The Music 5/5
