My name is Tim Young, and thank you for stopping by to check out my music and website, and I hope that you have fun listening. I am a singer-songwriter, and guitarist/instrumentalist with an eclectic blend of contemporary, and traditional folk, along with acoustic blues, and bluegrass, and alternative country. I started playing the guitar when I was around nine years old, and then moved away from playing as an adult, and then resumed again after turning 50. When I did this, I did so with a renewed energy, and deeper love and appreciation for the music that I played. I then also started writing songs, and then took up the banjo and harmonica. My musical songwriting influences include Bob Dylan, (especially early Bob Dylan), Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark, Jerry Jeff Walker, Nanci Griffith, while my traditional musical influences include Doc Watson, David Bromberg, John Hurt, Jean Ritchie and many others. I also like to play the Rock n Roll music that I grew up with. I hope that you will join me on musical journey by liking my music, and joining my mailing list.
I try to play my music with passion, and free from the constraints that the music business sometimes tries to impose on todays musicians. For a free download please feel free to join my email list, and I will respond by sending a free download of my song Strong Enough To Try.
