Album Notes
Adrienne Young, a seventh generation Floridian, homes in on a profound and personal style on Plow to the End of the Row, her debut solo album.

The row in the title ain't Music Row; the album evokes a sheaf of antique folk music pulled out of grandma's piano bench, a hip east Nashville cafe and an Earth mother's lullaby - all held together with red clay.

This americana singer/songwriter has a disarming appeal that crosses generations. Her songs hold enough old-timey and bluegrass influence to make traditionalists nod with approval while still incorporating a healthy measure of youthful edge.

Adrienne won the songwriting contest in the Bluegrass category at Merlefest 2003 with Sadie's Song, which you can hear listed on this page.

Price of CD includes album cover sticker, wildflower seeds and a lyrics booklet.

This record made itself. It is the culmination of numerous collaborations with the most profoundly talented folks I know. They have influenced me greatly and taken me to places I never would have reached on my own.

Will Kimbrough, an acclaimed musician both locally and nationally, co-wrote and co-produced many of the tracks on this album. It had always been a dream of mine to work with Will, whose solo efforts stand tall as oak and sweet as magnolia.

Ketch Secor, my teacher and friend, contributed untold amounts of inspiration to this project, as well as some mighty fine fiddle and banjo playing.

Other familiar faces include: Mark D. Sanders, Todd Snider, Dave Rowe, David Henry, Carter Wood, Alice Randell, Courtney Little, and many, many, many more.

These are my pieces of straw in a great haystack. Traditional songs of original American music. A melodic living history we can all share in. Thank you.

Home remedy from a country angel
first heard of adrienne reading show listings in the tennessean. well looked on cd baby and found and listened to that voice and the down home sound to it and i can say this blind fan would deninatly recommend this one. it's verry sweet, easy on theear, and I actually got my first taste of it on the WPRB Princeton show Music you can't hear on the radio. the head of the performing arts divission of the national federation of the blind is adrienne snow, and adrienne young's voice is as lovely as adrienne snow's. think our adrienne would love to listen to it.

Crisp and real - see them in concert!
Saw them (Adrienne & band) perform tonight at the Boston Folk Festival and now I'm home purchasing the CD, she is THAT GOOD! Go out and see her/them play and have your dancin' shoes on...but first, buy this CD so you can sing right along!


i'm SOLD!
i think i'm in love with the music and the artist! so new and refreshing yet so retro cool. bravo!

Like a breath of fresh air
Nothing at all like the S.O.S. commin' down the pipe. Excellent collection of warmed up old timey stuff, as well toe-tappin' new origionals. A perfect balance of instruments and vocals. A MUST have!


Excellent songs and singers marred by some distorted sound.
Adrienne Young is a very talented singer and songwriter who reminds me of Joni Mitchell and Olivia Newton John. Her accompanying singers are just as talented. The quality of the CD was marred by distortion near the end of one song, and some playful/mischievous vocals at the end of some songs. Overall, it's an album worth buying so it can be heard, over and over again. (I keep going over the first song, I Cannot Justify, to understand the first segment's significance. Its twangy flatness grates but also grows on me, like eating a tangelo.)

The best !
Plow To The End Of The Row is, without question, the finest Americana CD I've heard in the last several years. The energy, the honesty, the truth come shining through on every track. I'm just so happy and proud to have heard this CD ! It justifies my faith in music !

Marvelous stuff
I grew up with blue grass and country music on the AM radio in southwest Missouri in the late '60s and early '70s. Static spattered songs mixed in between the pre-dawn farm report and the local weather. Thought that was the most awful stuff in the world when, as my family and I moved around the country, I learned there was any thing else in the musical universe. Swore I'd never listen to country music and blue grass again.

In recent years, though, I've found my self listening to more and more. Pummeling hard at middle age, the pop stations have nothing more to say to me, if they ever did. Blue grass and country music do.

I joined a friend of mine to see The Gourds at Smith's Olde Bar in Atlanta on April 20. Adrienne Young and Little Sadie opened. I don't normally do live music; crowds, late nights, expense, blah, blah, blah. The litany.

And although The Gourds were good, what I really remember about the night was Adrienne Young and Little Sadie. Songs of love between people who have known each other longer than it takes to down a drink and leave the bar and find the car appeal to my eighteen years of marriage ("Home Remedy") My sense of America's foreign policy as represented by "Blinded by Stars". "Sadie's Song" reminds me that I've a wife of eighteen years and a twelve year old daughter at home. "Conestoga" and "Plow to the End of the Row" represent both the hard working people I knew and know in the midwest, and the wake up before dawn to start the day work ethic they instilled in me. And "Nipper's Corner" recalls my days at Appalachian State University, not far from Wilkesboro where "Adrienne won the songwriting contest in the Bluegrass category at Merlefest 2003 with Sadie's Song".

The band itself startled me. I hadn't expected an opening act that night, and if I did I figured it would be some local college band. Adrienne was lovely and has a marvelous voice, sweet and clear, playing her various instruments with poise and aplomb. The gentlemen were her equal in dexterity. But the light of the show, for me, was Amanda Kowalski on upright bass. She could have easily simply stood there and plucked strings, but she didn't. She rocked and rythmned her way through the show, her winning smile and bright eyes lighting to the back of the room. As much the equal of the other members of the band as the name sake, Adrienne Young.

I was with friends that night, and didn't take the opportunity of purchasing the CD at the show. Suffice it to say that decision weighed heavy on my mind and conscience for a few days before I looked up Adrienne Young and bought the CD on CD Baby (of which I'm familiar, being friends with "Three Weird Sisters", who also market their CD on CD Baby.)

Marvelous stuff. Absolutely marvelous.

The real deal
I received the CD today and preempted life to listen. I just wanted to write to let you know that the promise of that single song at the
Chris Austin Songwriters Contest at Merlefest has been more than fulfilled by the CD. What a rich listening experience! Adrienne's the real deal. No one trick pony there. There's so much going on in her songs (both in choice and writing), her singing, in the instrumentation, and in who she's chosen to surround herself with. I look forward to hearing much more from Adrienne & Co. in the future....perhaps on a clear, crisp Saturday night on the Watson stage at Merlefest....

Scott Barnes

Wonderful, reflective; I identified almost too much with the lyrics.
I identified so intimately with the lyrics of Adrienne's songs that I can't really be an "objective critic," except to say that I believe other listeners should also relate to them. That's about the most one can ask of any songwriter.

John Danley

Authenticity of purity. A voice and songwriting that does not rely on pretentious delivery. If you like June Carter or Margo Timmons, you'll love this disc.
