TIM YOUNG RELEASES “THE COST” ON NOT FADE AWAY RECORDS
Album to be available through major digital retailers on September 9th
New York, NY – Not Fade Away Records announced the release of Hell’s Kitchen Rock n Roll legend Tim Young’s latest album “The Cost” in major online retail stores this September 9th, 2008. Produced by Mark Meisel and Bob Becker of Counter Clockwise Music of Detroit and mastered at Cincinnati’s Sound Images by Dave Davis, the album was unveiled at a pre-release party on Sunday July 27th in the Klub Room at mid-town Manhattan’s Connolly’s Pub.
“‘The Cost’ is about dealing with loss and the processes one might use to help get things back to a better balance in life,” explained Tim. “Loss can cover a lot of ground but ‘The Cost’ is focused on two areas in particular: love and freedom — how each are tied together and how each must maintain their autonomy in order to flourish.”
What the press is saying about Tim Young:
“Just when I despaired of ever again hearing tight, passionate, honest, slam-bang ROCK, along comes Tim Young. You just don’t get this kind of stuff every day. It comes from a talent that has worked out in the “gym” to develop itself, and a maturity that reminds you just what personal rock and poetry are all about. Tim Young is the real thing.” Eliot Camaren, The Clinton Chronicle
“Young’s unschooled, urgent vocal delivery and lo-fi aesthetic combined with his solid and energetic guitar playing and fertile creativity places his music at the intersection between urban folk, heartland rock and outsider music.” Jon Sobel, Blogcritics Magazine
About Tim Young
Tim Young is a veteran to the New York music scene for nearly two decades. Following the release of his Debut ‘No Stranger’ in 2002, he began a string of over 80 shows at the Electric Banana Bar on west 50th street. At the Banana Tim was able to solidify a great fan base, record a live CD, and continue to produce new material. Once the Banana Bar closed in April of 2005, Tim was invited to perform weekly at the nearby Bellevue Bar where the act evolved into a duo with the addition of drummer Sand Edwards. Following the stint at Bellevue Bar, Tim Young Band was installed as the house band at Club Siberia.
Young began releasing CDs in 2002 with ‘No Stranger’, a collection of nine original instrumentals self-produced and recorded at his home studio. For his second release ‘Red’, his debut as a solo singer/songwriter, he recorded sixteen original songs that explore the emotional landscape of an artist dealing with the way of life in twenty-first-century NYC.
Tim Young’s third CD ‘The Cost’ features twelve new songs and a brand new version of his own tune “Renegade” from Red. It takes some similar themes but develops them in a more complex way with the addition of a full band. Tim takes guitar, bass and drums and puts them together in a classy classic kind of way to create music that envelopes not only rock, but also country and folk influences woven into the fabric of rock ‘n roll.
Currently, Tim Young Band performs a monthly residency at Vintage Bar & Restaurant located at 51st Street and 9th Ave. in Manhattan.
