Bio: I was born into a band of gypsies as they travelled through Atlanta. My mother was a healer and my daddy was a truck driver and we travelled all across the south. Grew up in between New Orleans-Louisiana, Destin-Florida and Glasgow-Scotland although my parents did spend some time in Glasgow-Kent...See Full Bio

“Imagine you spot a fantastic old jacket you didn’t know you had, hidden at the back of the wardrobe. Old, timeworn leather, rich, quilted lining. And there’s a pair of cowboy boots you’ve never worn either. You pull on the jacket, slip into the boots and it all fits like a glove, like they were tailor-made for you. You look in the mirror and think: “Fuck me! I look good in these.” So Kevin Young’s songs. They wrap you in a warm embrace like old lost friends just turned up out of the blue… soothingly familiar as though they have been favourites all your life… Soulful, aching, plaintive by turn then uplifting, spirited and reviving, these short stories are an engrossing journey across a multi-textured landscape you’ll remember for a long, long time. Acts like Kevin Young come along only every so often. Don’t miss your chance to climb aboard now, sit back and luxuriate in the imagination of a truly accomplished artist."”
