Young James’ first full-length, self-titled recording blurs the line between pop hooks and country-influenced folk/rock of the 1970’s. The band blends soaring harmonies with distinct prairie sounds and imagery. Young James draws influence and has been compared to such artists as Neil Young, Fleetwood Mac, Blind Melon and the Jayhawks.
Although work on Young James’ recording began just over a year ago, the project has been years in the making. High school chums Jesse Johnstone (Drums, Vocals, Banjo), Davy James (Vocals, Guitar), https://www.tradebit.comng (Vocals, Guitar), and Brett Young (Bass, Vocals, Keys) have enjoyed each other’s music for years, but their paths had not crossed musically until only recently.
In 2001, the line-up that now forms Young James was spread out across Canada. T.C. and his brother Brett moved west to form the Calgary based band, Space Between. After 4 albums Davy and Jesse’s band Feederchain had fizzled out. Davy moved west to Vancouver with Ghost Town Drive and life dragged Jesse to Montreal. By early 2007 all four members were back on the prairies. The two Young brothers and Davy found themselves all living within walking distance of each other in Saskatoon and soon began writing and recording together.
“…sprawling prairie folk/rock steeped in the vibe of 70’s icons like Neil Young.” -Craig Silliphant, Planet S Magazine
