ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This Minneapolis fingerstyle guitarist plays both the six and twelve-string guitar with driving rhythm and groove. While in his mid-twenties, Michael has an ageless stage presence, and he displays his technically proficient fretwork by carrying his bouncy and energetic groove from powerful and compelling compositions to soulful ballads. Moving from daunting and alarming to lighthearted and idiosyncratic instrumentals, Michael takes advantage of the guitar\'s possibilities by combining standard and alternate tunings with a mix of slide guitar into his playing. He has impressed audiences all over the United States including appearances at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, the legendary CBGB 313 Gallery in New York City, and the illustrious Knitting Factory also in New York City. While primarily an instrumentalist, Michael also incorporates his warm singing voice into his sets.

4 out of 5 stars: \"One of the album\'s [Parallel Play] most shining moments is Young\'s performance of the traditional tune Cripple Creek. It takes a second to get it, but it sounds familiar from the initial notes and truly hightlights Young\'s incredible playing ability. He\'d be a great fit at Folks Fest.\" Brian F. Johnson, Marquee Magazine

\"Minnesota-bred Young is a world-class picker who shines on 6 and 12-string guitar. There\'s something of the Leo Kottke style in Young\'s playing, but he also has his own sound, which draws from folk, rock, blues, country and classical. Young knows his way around the guitar classics but also has a bag full of originals that jump. Listen for songs such as Plinko and Indio.\" Jim Beal, San Antonio Express News
