Youngest Son / Bio

Youngest Son is Steve Slagg, who grew up playing Chopin and hymns on an upright piano in Missouri. His album All Saints' Day (2012) is a wimp-folk concept album: 12 songs that tell a story about death and rebirth by a lake in Wisconsin. His demo reel, Pigshit & Glowing (2011), is full of 3-ish minute vignettes about the Catholic church, obsessive sexuality, and an extinct volcano in Idaho, among other things. Both records can be streamed, along with copious and probably overwhelming interactive liner notes--including lyrics, stories, hyperlinks and original artwork--on the Youngest Son website.

Currently, Steve is working on a bunch of new songs which you can't hear online, but you can hear in person if you catch one of his shows in Chicago. We're pretty sure he's trying to be the gay, white, evangelical love child of Randy Newman and Nina Simone. Does the world need that? We don't know if the world needs that. We hope the world needs that
