DEBORAH YATES, Vortex Tribe’s elegant and regal leader, thrills crowds with her spirited fluting and
commanding presence. Accepted into her first symphony orchestra at the age of 13, Deborah was touring
Europe at 16, playing piccolo with symphonic orchestras. Her classical talents earned her featured
performances at the Brandenburgh Hall in Vienna, Austria, for Austria’s President, and a solo at Carnegie Hall.
Deborah attended the University of Northern Colorado, on full scholarship, as one of the youngest students to
be accepted into the Music Performance Program. Deborah has performed with symphony orchestras
worldwide, musical theater, ballet orchestras, chamber ensembles, solo performance, and symphonic bands.

Now Deborah has trained trained her sights on the explosive expressionism in Jazz, Rock and Latin music with
the unorthodox approach of using guitar pedals and effects to enhance her sound. She played flute throughout
Britain and the Bay Area, performed weekly at Jagz at the Station in Acscot, England, and played the Fringe
Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland, before piloting the Vortex Tribe around the world. She has just completed her
second South Pacific tour and is looking forward to her next tour being scheduled for March 2011 – featuring her
rock / funk flute.   Deborah’s duet – Due Cuori – will be opening for the great Al DiMeola in Los Angeles.  

She tours and performs with Jon Mulvey and Stuart Hamm of Joe Satriani and Prairie Prince from The Tubes.
She is in the studio recording her flamenco guitar / flute duet music with Due Cuori featuring the music of Jon
Mulvey, and will include Tony Levin on bass and Jerry Marotta both of Peter Gabriel fame on the recordings.
