Ian Yates – Between The Joy And The Sorrow [Album]

Ian Yates - Between The Joy And The Sorrow

Uk-based Contemporary Christian worship leader and songwriter Ian Yates drops a brand new album titled, “Between The Joy And The Sorrow (Part 1).”

Speaking on the nine(9)-track project, Ian says “I wanted to write really honest songs, I’ve always tried to write songs of truth and authentic songs of hope. These songs are born out of the last two years as we’ve navigated this pandemic.”

“Throughout this time I have come back to a simple trust in God. Often, I found myself disappointed with the things I’d seen, I found myself getting frustrated and lost in the opinions of people, the many perceptions of God, the incorrect prophecies, the politics, and politicians.

But at the end of the day, I’m only responsible for myself and I had to look at myself and say, am I living a life of true devotion and worship? Am I living the way of Jesus?”

“There’s a lot of strong voices out there and am I listening to God’s voice? Over the last two(2) years, I’ve felt like I’ve been living in the tensions of God’s faithfulness and provision yet facing struggles and wrestling with the things I’d seen.

My prayer is that these songs bring hope to those who have been disillusioned and remind those who have been disappointed that there is a light in the darkness, there is a Father who loves his children. 

Musically, he found inspiration in a number of singer/songwriters including 70’s folk singer Nick Drake, Foy Vance, Alexi Murdoch, Bob Dylan and the ‘Nebraska’ album from Bruce Springsteen.

This new album project serves as his sixth(6th) body of work and is released in two parts, with the second installment expected around September 2022.

Ian is a Christian worship leader and songwriter from Liverpool, UK. He leads musical worship at his home church Bootle Elim and is part of Elim Sound, the national worship department for the Elim movement.

He is married to Kate and their union is blessed with three(3) young children: Jackson, Elijah, and Abiah.
