John Tate is a multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and songwriter, originally from Vancouver, BC.. He has lived and performed all over North America with musicians from the Blues, Country and Rock genres.

"I'm very fortunate to have been able to work as a drummer and/or a guitar player, with some incredibly talented people, for most of my life. They've all had some sort of influence on me and shared so much with me, whether they realized it or not."
