"Nick Young's sound is a stripped-down Americana and lush pop smoothie. Yeah, there's a splash of country sour mash too, but it doesn't require boots and a hat. And though Young leans heavily on his love of the alt-country medium, his penchant for melody and hooks takes away some of the requisite melancholy. You'll hear the Earle, but the Costello is in there, too. It's fine-tuned and well-worn Americana that'll still give you heartache and splinters."
Rochester City Newspaper
"Young writes and performs my favorite kind of music – Americana/Alt.country/Roots/The New Sincerity/Whatever the Hell You Call It. Formerly the frontman for Rochester’s Burning Daylight, Young just released his first solo album, Truth Is. If you’re fond of pedal steel guitars and twang, and post-Replacements Paul Westerberg, pick it up."
Nick Zaino (Boston Music Critic)
"Songs like "Nicotine & Tar" and "Wait For Me" simmer with a back-porch Southern vibe, while tunes like "Gone" are raw Americana, Young's indie-rock voice gives the album a contrasting feel. On paper, you'd never expect it to make sense. But the truth is, it works pretty well."
Rochester Democrat & Chronicle
"If you follow the alt-country ladder up from Gram Parsons to Wilco, at the very top you might find Nick Young.
Nick Young has written a lot of great songs, and plays them with a fiery, raw energy that takes the genre further, into a deeper, darker place."
Singer/Songwriter, The Push Stars
"Contagious songs in the alt-country mode, sounding like a cross between Wilco, the Old 97's and vintage Soul Asylum."
