Born in Georgia and legally named Young on account of being the youngest in a family of seven, he began playing music at age 12 and hasn't stopped since. Within a few years he was recording his first songs, and in high school began releasing his music via tape cassette, selling copies out of a local record shop called Turtles. Chance encounters led to a relationship with Brendan Benson, who eventually expressed his interest in helping Young produce an album to release on his new label Readymade Records in the US. The album was recorded at the all analog Nashville studio Welcome to 1979, a perfect fit for Young's soulful bluesy retro-pop style and is out on Lojinx in the UK & Europe.
