Following in the footsteps of Pat Benatar/Neil Giraldo and Buckingham/Nicks but with a decidedly more funky & progressive edge, music aficionados want to keep ears and eyes peeled for the long awaited new project from former Megadeth & Badi Assad guitarist, Jeff Young. Teaming up with Las Vegas bred vocalist/dancer, Sherri - the duo is poised to release their very first single, the de-tuned, sexy, swamp rock anthem, "Come Closer."
This exhilarating original song features the considerable talents of James LoMenzo (Black Label Society, Megadeth, David Lee Roth) on bass and Jeff Bowders (Paul Gilbert, Puddle of Mudd) on drums. The track was produced by Young, recorded live to 2" analog tape & mixed at the plush new Vegas View Studio by Bobby Ferrari.
"We're treating our first release like the old 45 RPM singles with a Side A & B," states Young.
The flip side of Jeff & Sherri's first release is "Wild Horses," a poignant re-imagining of The Rolling Stones classic. This track features fretless bass by Ric Fierabracci (Stevie Wonder, Billy Cobham, Shakira) & Brian Tichy (Whitesnake, Billy Idol, Foreigner) on drums.
Jeff is the lead guitarist on Megadeth's platinum selling, So Far, So Good… So What! (Capital Records). After his "life-in-deth experience," he penned the popular Fingerprints column in Guitar For The Practicing Musician magazine. For his next collaboration with Brazil's Badi Assad, he co-wrote & produced the album Chameleon. The Verve/PolyGram release climed to #1 in Europe, also topping JAZZIZ magazine's Readers Poll: "Best Brazilian Albums of the Year." Highlight performances with Assad include 1999s Lilith Fair & Farm Aid 2000. The track "Waves" from Chameleon was featured in the Michael & Kirk Douglas film, It Runs In the Family.

Sherri grew up in glitzy Sin City and just after high school, landed in the long running number one show, Splash. As a lead dancer & lead singer understudy, this experience prepared her to transition from showgirl to lead vocalist, musician & entertainer. Sherri's captivating on-stage performance combined with her expansive vocal range and diversity reveals her to be among modern music's most intriguing artists to watch.
