Nick YoungHailing from Rochester, N.Y., singer-songwriter Nick Young’s songs combine power pop hooks with country-tinged roots rock to form an energetic sound that’s familiar, yet all its own. After several years as the frontman and principal songwriter of the critically acclaimed alt-country band Burning Daylight, Young spent much of 2010 recording his solo debut record in Nashville, Tennessee with producer Jim Reilley (of The New Dylans). With the help of Reilley and with legendary pedal steel player Al Perkins (Gram Parsons) and drummer Ken Coomer (Wilco) augmenting Young’s Americana/Power Pop sound, the album “Truth Is” was released on November 30, 2010. Since its release, Young has traveled more than 30,000 miles in support of the record, armed with an acoustic guitar, his songs and an authentic passion for performing.
