Tims take on music
Tim Young is a singer-songwriter who resides in Glendale Arizona and he loves being called a Folk singer and singer-
songwriter. His style combines many elements of traditional folk, folk-rock, country and acoustic blues into a unique
style. After a ten year hiatus from music he returned to music following his fiftieth birthday with a renewed passion for
both writing lyrics and playing his guitar that continues to this day. His musical influences are diverse, and they include
Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan ( especially early Bob Dylan ), Nanci Griffith, Guy Clark, Townes Van Zandt, Mississippi
John Hurt, Doc Watson, and also....... The Beatles just to name a few. He is primarily a singer-songwriter with his own
personal style that includes a unique blend of blues, bluegrass, and folk-folk. He is also influenced by guitarists such as
Tommy Emmanuel, and he loves to play the occasional instrumental such as the original `Can We Still Love`.
Tim was also a former folk music DJ at W.E.C.S radio 90.1 fm out of Connecticut, and he can reflect reflect back to
that earlier time when the DJs controlled the music, and were able to invite guests to perform live on their programs. He
did not have to follow the rules or a format for his program, and artists such as The Nields, and Hugh Blumenfeld were
guests on his program.It was during this time that Tim developed a knowledge of music that has remained with him to this
He hopes that his music brings you joy........
