The talented songsmiths have toured throughout Europe combining their passion for performing and adventure, now they’re heading for the North East where they’re sure to enlighten local music fans with their unique, soulful sound.
Comprising of Jon Stone and Kristy Osmunson, American Young is more than just a name. It’s a combination of passion, determination and culture. The pair are no stranger to music and its boundless ability to evoke spectrums of emotion, their collaborative infusions leaving fans reaching out for that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. The duo’s undeniable chemistry combined with their compelling lyricism and virtuosic musicianship makes for a spellbinding creation; a cathartic country sound like no other.
Their energetic performances are laced with perfect harmonies, soulful violin and biting guitar solos, a recipe which has left listeners across the globe infected with their charm. It comes as no surprise that they’ve recently been nominated as the best international touring act at the British Country Music Awards.
The band’s debut single ‘Love is War’ provides listeners with a welcome glimpse into the world of American Young. Its acoustic-like arrangement and raw, emotive lyrics paint a picture of love and loss. Kristy defines the track as:
“What we all do in relationships. We simply give up. We stop learning how to talk to each other. We stay angry, and that’s not what we need to do. We need to learn. We need to fight for love.”
