Biography

Rocker Tim Young sees his music as a means of communication, as he reveals stories and experiences from his life. Raised on American top 40 radio in the sixties, Young claims that “those melodies and beats set the tone in my brain to be unleashed later once I realized I was a musician.” Young’s influences go even further than musicians, as he has commented that the attitudes and philosophies of Beat writers Jack Kerouac, Neal Cassidy and Allan Ginsberg have also played a valuable role in shaping his music.

Not only did Young find himself immensely influenced by music and poetry, he also gained invaluable wisdom and experience “growing up” in Manhattan’s famed Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood. Young has stated, “Rock ‘n roll is something that has to be ‘soaked’ into oneself. It can not be plastered on or ‘learned’ in any traditional sense. However, if it is absorbed and finds a place in the individual to grow and mature, then there develops the chance to create exciting music. So Tim Young gives one hundred percent; playing his guitar hard, and singing loud so that the music performs it’s magic.

Young is a veteran to the New York music scene for nearly two decades. Following the release of NO STRANGER in 2002 he began a string of over 80 shows at the Electric Banana Bar on west 50th street. At the Banana Tim was able to solidify a great fan base, record a live CD, and continue to produce new material.

    Music is a bit too simple and modern, but very pleasant and catchy. Text are rather nice too.
