Rupert Wates was born in London and studied at Oxford University. He has been a full time songwriter since the late 1990s, when he signed a publishing contract with Eaton Music Limited. His contract required him to write material in all kinds of styles and genres, for all kinds of artists. He worked extensively with Jazz vocalist Liz Fletcher, and wrote the album 'Blue Afternoons' (Mainstem, 2002) specially for her voice. Moving in 2001 to Paris, Wates formed his own quartet and began playing live regularly. In fall 2006 he came to the US. He is now based in New York City and Colorado. Since coming to the US, Wates has won more than 30 songwriting awards. He was recognized as Artist of the Year 2016 by the International House Concert Network, a 2018 Finalist in the Kerrville New Folk Song Contest, Emerging Artist at Falconridge Folk Festival, 2018 and has accumulated more than 40 songwriting and performing awards.
