Album Notes
"We need this music. It is music that feeds the soul."
Craig Stevens - Los Angeles, CA

"Great vocals. Great songs. Great Record."
Bob Kirsch - Welk Music Group

Jenny Yates has established herself as a successful songwriter - writing songs recorded by a variety of artists and culminating in her writing collaboration with Garth Brooks, which produced many songs - eight he's recorded - including his hits "Standing Outside the Fire", "The Red Strokes", "Thicker Than Blood" and the Golden Globe nominated "When You Come Back To Me Again" (from the film FREQUENCY).

Through the years - she has written songs with some of the world's finest singer/songwriters including: Garth Brooks, Keb'Mo', J.D. Souther, Eric Kaz, Janis Ian, Darden Smith, Andrew Gold, Carl Jackson, Peter McCann, Mike Reid and Tony Joe White.

Making a "to do" list of her life - she found she still wanted to make her own statement as a recording artist. Her first cd - "out of the blue" - consists of 14 songs she's written over the course of the last 15 years with co-writers Andrew Gold, Gary Nicholson, Tom Kimmel, Pierce Pettis, Kieran Kane, Charlie Black, Walt Aldridge, Buddy Mondlock, Garth Brooks, Johnny Lee Schell & Mark Isham.

Setting out to create her own folk-country sound "out of the blue" - was self-produced - recorded in Nashville and Los Angeles - with some of the country's finest musicians, singers and engineers.

Harmony vocals are provided by friends, Andrew Gold on "The Streets of Your Town", Garth Brooks on "A Good Rain", Trisha Yearwood on "Beautiful World" and,
Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood on "This Boat".

Born and raised in Phoenix, Jenny now divides her time between Los Angeles, CA, Nashville, TN, and Blue, Arizona (located in the White Mountains of eastern Arizona), writing songs and singing for a living.

"I love this cd. It gives me a 'peaceful easy feeling' ".
Tuttie Jackson - Nashville, TN

"She is not only a great writer, but there's something about her voice. Everytime she sings I'm just taken in by it. Her voice is commanding yet inviting - I call it amazing'."

There are about five songs I think one should become a hit. Just can't decide which one. They are all out of the blue. I keep playing the cd over and over at work. Great....

Dorothy Anderson

Wonderful CD
Love the songs, Rain really captures the farmers misfortune, and I love Tender is My Heart.


Great Collection of songs by an extraordinary vocalist!!
OUT OF THE BLUE embodies the exellence possible with modern country music. The collection of well-crafted, poignant songs paints a set of stories. Images flood the listener's mind as the lyrics weave their tales of everyday life. Yates directs her powerful voice artfully. With the purity and fluidity of a mountain stream, she brings life to the set of collaborations. She wields a subtlety beyond the abilities of many commercial country artists. The song, the story takes precedence to the"sound" and ego of the artist. With every listen, OUT OF THE BLUE brings the listener an enjoyable experience. It is the perfect disc for road trips.

Matthew Locricchio

Out of the Blue is pure gold!
This first album by Jenny Yates is a so engaging that one wants to listen to it over and over. Backed by outstanding studio talent and the clarity of her voice, this album is not to be missed. Her haunting, A GOOD RAIN, is an American anthem of the 21st century. Sing on,Jenny!


What a beautiful world when I'm listening to this..

I've always known Jenny Yates was a talented songwriter. Little did I know that she had such a pure, clean voice. I'm surprised and delighted with this music!

Tracy Newman

Great CD. Really great CD.
I like to buy CD's of artists that I see around town live, and like, but most of the time I'm disappointed with the way they've been recorded. It doesn't resemble what they really sound like. Jenny's CD is the REAL DEAL. You really get the artist and her true voice and ability. And her writing is great. I love it!!!

Out of the Blue
When I first heard you sing at LVs 90th birthday party, I was amazed at how lovely your voice was. I finally bought your "Out of the Blue" CD and your voice is as spectacular as then. I hope to see you again at one of the KYR events so you can sign my album.

Clean and crisp
I enjoyed this CD very much. Clean and crisp sound with outstanding musicians. Jenny has a voice I just love. It is refreshing to hear country without the schmaltz that the big labels put out.

Trots Allt

pure and timeless Americana
"Jenny Yates has been writing songs for Garth Brooks, Kathy Mattea and Ronnie Milsap. But when she, herself, sings her songs - written in co-operation with Kieran Kane, Andrew Gold and Gary Nicholson - it's not about middle-of-the-road-mainstream-boring-country, it's about pure and timeless (70's smelling) Americana. Jenny's voice is the centre-piece, and it's a voice that convinces you from the first bar - A kind of clear and concious tone, not unlike Linda Ronstadt. Proud and beautiful!"
