Young Citizens / Bio

Hailing from Woodstock, NY, Young Citizens is a band of members all influenced by Rock, Reggae and Blues. Being a live band (they're first album still underway), Young Citizens is live in another sense: they're alive and wired! They don't play straightforward power-chords like AC/DC, but they know how to rock. And although they wouldn't call themselves Americana, they might admit to a folk influence. Rock would be a close enough description for all you categorizers out there, but when it's showtime it's the attitude that counts. Genre alone never lead a generation. Time will tell where they go, but Young Citizens' sound is continuously evolving as they write and refine and play it out. Whether they're playing as an acoustic duo or a full band, you can feel an energy that's always there. Their shows are always a good time and they will play all night if you give them the chance. It's their approach that connects Young Citizens to their audience; good people, good music and a good crew. Good songwriting and talent never hurts!

Often paying homage to their most influential songwriters/artists of the past and present (these have included the likes of Taj Mahal, Trevor Hall, Sublime, Rolling Stones, Jack White, Led Zeppelin, The Arctic Monkeys, The Clash, CSNY, The Faces, Marshall Tucker Band and a handful more), their originals are (dare I say it?) equally memorable. Of course, you've got to see them first. Then wait until you're driving back home and you're humming that melody...
