Members: Mitch Johnson- Vocals/Guitar, Mike Drager- Lead Guitar, Tyler Torrison- Drums, Aaron Olson- Bass
Formed by friends old and new, Young is a band that is focused on the future,
and does not forget to take pride in the past. Recently birthed in Minneapolis,
Young is comprised of high school friends Mitch Johnson (Vocals, Rhythm Guitar),
Aaron Olson (Bass), and Tyler Torrison (Drums). Rounding out the quartet is
the newly acquired lead guitarist Mike Drager. For the past 5 years, all four
members have been playing under various monikers with varied success until
they finally decided to join forces. Playing a blend of twangy Americana and
pop-rock, the group is looking to create a sound that--fused with a few
throwbacks--is entirely their own. No ironic statements, no overt theatrics,
just some good ol tunes.
The debut EP (Produced by Eric Arjes of Camera Cant Lie) is due out on
August 26th, followed by a string of shows across the Midwest throughout the
fall. The first preview track, Payday, from the EP is available for free download on www.youngband.bandcamp.com and the bands single, Devil On My Back, will
premier with a music video in late August.
Stay tuned for the EPs online release as well as the CD release show in Minneapolis.
