16 MP3 Songs
ROCK: Folk Rock, FOLK: Political
Gina Young is a singer/songwriter, actress/activist,
daredevil dyke dreamer and she's coming your way!
Gina's eclectic musical style pushes the envelope of solo
acoustic folk music; infusing melody-driven guitar
compositions with punk rock and politics.
Her passion for activism is evidenced by her frequent
performances in support of the peace movement as well as
for feminist and queer causes and organizations. She
performed in support of The Violence Against Women Act on
the Steps of the Supreme Court, as well as taking the
at events such as The Midwestern BLGT College Conference
2003, The Mid-Atlantic Women's Rights and Empowerment
Conference 2003 and National Youth Pride 2002.
Gina has appeared on MTV and Oxygen. She was also
featured on the February 2003 episode of In the Life (the national gay and lesbian television newsmagazine) in a segment hosted by Broadway performer StaceyAnn Chin that includes interviews with Donna Dresch, Sarah Dougher, the
Butchies, Carrie Brownstein of Sleater-Kinney and JD Samson of Le Tigre. Gina's song "Supergirl" was featured on a November 2002 episode of Dawson's Creek.
INTRACTABLE, Gina's debut album, was released on 28 Days
Records in Summer 2002 and the Christian Right has been
absolutely thrilled. (smirk)
Other recording appearances include "College" on the 2001
Ladyfest Compilation, "Prom Queen" on the Acoustic
Revolution Comp, "Surrounded" on the GrrrlFest Comp 2002,
the 1999 Prom Queen demo cd, and backup vocals for other
fabulous regional musicians.
Two of Gina's music/theater pieces have had successful
runs Off-Off Broadway: "she cuts herself / she likes to write" (2001) and "phone|sex|cancer" (2002-2003). Both shows
earned a cult following and dealt with issues important
to the lives of young queer wimmin.
SOME PRESS QUOTES:
"Here is a talent that is equal to Ani DiFranco and Tori
Amos in integrity. Even if you strip Intractable of its
steadfast activism and feminist stance, it is apparent
that Gina Young could quite possibly be the next gigantic
female vocalist inhabiting the East Coast scene."
-- Jason D. Taylor, All Music Guide
"[Gina's song 'College'] does middle-class chick
rebellion even better than Liz Phair."
-- Maya Kremen, The Village Voice
"Gina gives me hope for the world!"
-- Erin Lewis, Curve Magazine
"The combination of intelligent observation and punk
attitude is a winning combination of hooks and focused
angst from this radicalized singer-songwriter. Rocking
rebellion and articulate anti-establishment attacks make
Intractable fully successful political rock."
-- Tom Schulte, Outsight
"Simply put... Gina Young rocks!!! [Her album] will put a
smile on your face as you're rocking out, and have you
looking forward to many new CDs from this folk singer
with punk attitude."
-- Dee Yellowlees, https://www.tradebit.com
"Gina Young changed the way I look at feminists that make
a statement. This openly proud, gay activist forced me to
pay attention to her gripping lyrics that make prejudice seem like a thing of the past."
-- Katie Kiedyk, https://www.tradebit.com
"We dream of Gina!"
-- Girlfriends magazine
