Note-for-note, harmonies and riffs– every song is played live with nothing pre-recorded and to the standard set by McCartney himself in the early 1970s. Below is a look at the talent behind the world’s premier McCartney concert experience.
Yuri Pool as Paul McCartney (Lead vocals, bass, guitar, piano)
Having undergone a complete retooling in the last year, Yuri has made The McCartney Years a period-true, technically stunning and sonically explosive show. His work in building TMY has been praised by Beatles promoter Sid Bernstein as “the best on the scene today…” Whether he’s playing a real McCartney-era Höfner or emulating the same wardrobe from the “Wings over America” mid-70s tour, Yuri is true to Sir Paul in his vocal stylings and presentation on tracks like ‘Live and Let Die’, ‘Let it Be’, ‘The Long and Winding Road’ and ‘Jet’. His commitment to 100% live and accurate reproductions of McCartney’s concert experience started way back in his native Holland, continued through his stint as Paul McCartney in one of the bigger travelling Beatles shows in the UK and has set the standard for all who might follow in this significant body of work.
Laura Gagnon as Linda McCartney (Backing vocals, keyboards, percussion)
Laura, born in rural Ontario Canada, started her music career at a young age singing at talent competitions and studying at the Royal Conservatory of Music. After graduating, she moved to writing and recording her own material which grew and flourished throughout her high school years. Laura had the honour to call Elaine Overholt her private voice and performance coach (Overholt taught the Cast of Chicago & Hairspray), and took writing classes with Chad Irschick, a gold and platinum songwriter and recording engineer. At the ripe age of just 19, she recorded her very first full-length album. The album was received with great anticipation and sold well, and within years she penned her second record that subsequently earned her ‘Best Pop Artist Of The Year’ at the nationally acclaimed ‘London Music Awards’. The release of her second album was followed up with a tour that at the same time kicked off her solo career. Laura now performs alongside Yuri in the role of Linda McCartney.
