“Braden Gates is one of those singer/songwriters that stops your drunken conversation
and makes you say, “Who the **** is that singing?” — Vue Weekly
Gates’ warm and slightly gravelly voice relays stories that are funny and heartbreaking — usually over the course of the same tune. He is a born raconteur who has been compared with a young Loudon Wainwright.
Full of wit and wisdom, folksy charm and sharp observations, Gates’ compositions are relevant and very rooted in the present —even if he plays that fiddle and picks that guitar like an artist well beyond his years. We were struck by that dichotomy when we first heard him at the Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival last year. The Alberta singer/songwriter is only in his mid-twenties.
