Sedona AZ (May 29, 2012) – American Troubadour Steve Young performs with his son Jubal at Studio Live on Thursday June 7th. Doors open at 7:00pm with the show starting at 7:30pm, tickets are $15.00 in advance and $20.00 the day of the show.
Steve Young is the American Troubadour – a major figure in Americana, contemporary folk and alt-country music and writer-composer of songs that are considered masterpieces. Among these are the acclaimed standard “Seven Bridges Road,” recorded by The Eagles, Dolly Parton, Joan Baez and a dozen more; “Lonesome, On’ry and Mean,” Waylon Jennings’ signature tune, and recorded by Travis Tritt, Dierks Bentley, Henry Rollins and Shooter Jennings; and the classic “Montgomery in the Rain,” popularized by Hank Williams Jr. Keith Urban sings “Seven Bridges Road” as the first song in his concerts. Others who sing this song in concert include Lady Antebellum, Sugarland and Alan Jackson.
With his no-holds-barred baritone and lightning-fast, finger-style guitar, Steve transports his audience into the musical soul of America. His contemporary edge dances with the time-honored traditions of American music. With a vibrant repertoire that draws from Roots, Folk, Appalachian, Blues, Americana, Southern Gospel, Celtic and Tejano, Steve is living proof of the force of true roots music.
Steve’s most recent CD, Stories Round Horseshoe Bend (Yesterday & Today, AU), is a live recording featuring 17 songs and 12 introductions. It is Young’s 14th solo recording. “Stories” follows a long list of critically acclaimed recordings. In fact, Billboard named Primal Young CD as a “Critic’s Choice” and called Young a “singer of major status.” And Rolling Stone Record Guide awarded 4 stars to Renegade Picker and No Place to Fall. Plus Nashville Scene selected Renegade Picker as one of “The 50 Best Albums Ever,” alongside recordings by Hank Williams, Neil Young and The Stanley Brothers, clear evidence of Young’s musical status.
“All my CDs can be quite different in a way from each other, except the voice makes the connection,” Young says.
