We are super excited this week to. have Erik Yates of Hot Buttered Rum as our guest on No Simple Road. Erik spent his Bay Area youth trying nearly every instrument and style he came across. Piano lessons, saxophone quartets, garage bands and folk songs had all weaseled their way into his life by the time he hit high school. College in Portland, OR, where he studied music and writing, brought new musical horizons, new conspirators (including classmate Nat Keefe) and a new project, Hot Buttered Rum, which would soon take over his life.
We sit down with Erik to talk about his experience going to school in Western Oregon and the Bluegrass scene there, why, to him, bluegrass feels like the most honest music to play, how and why Hot Buttered Rum got their start, the ways in which playing music overlaps with ones personality, how the new album ‘Shine All Night’ came into being, how it feels to have your music released into the world for people to experience, and much more!
