He was raised in Griffin, Georgia, a small town 37 miles south of the Atlanta airport. Young eventually moved to Chicago and while there began recording demos in a home studio and selling them at shows and online. Out of the blue he got an email from Brendan Benson containing a cover of Young's song "Only in a dream". A mutual friend had been painting at Benson's residence and decided to listen to Young's demos on the job.
Benson took the CD. Young traveled to Nashville not long after, to meet him formally and they ended up writing a song. He left his gig in Chicago and moved to Nashville immersing himself in the city's live music scene. Less than a year ago, Young took all of his demos to Brendan and they chose the songs for the upcoming album Give Me My Change.
Young is the first artist signed to Brendan's label Readymade Records and Give Me My Change was recorded with Brendan at the helm at the all analog studio Welcome To 1979 in Nashville, TN. The two are hitting the road in Europe this May. "Give Me My Change" will be released on Readymade Records in USA and Lojinx in UK & Europe in May 2011. Read more on Last.fm.
