About | Nick Young


Short Version:

Nick Young writes and performs indie rock with a touch of twang, sounding like a cross between vintage Wilco, Old 97s & Steve Earle.


Long Version:

Nick Young's twang infused new album "South Lima" is a stripped-down affair, heavy on acoustic and pedal steel guitars but retaining Young's signature hooks and exquisite knack for melody. The Rochester, NY based artist recorded the album in nearby Buffalo with his long time bass player and friend Tim Mroz and the record was named after the small (very small) town where Young wrote almost all of the songs that appear on the release. Young's sophomore effort comes almost 3 years after his solo debut "Truth Is" and after nearly 50,000 miles of touring in support of that album. Embracing the troubadour within, Young will once again bring his "twang-folk" (or whatever the hell you want to call it) to the masses, armed with an acoustic guitar, his songs and an authentic passion for performing.
