For 50 years Jesse Colin Young has been singing songs about peace, relationships and the environment. From his folk days in Boston and his first record, Soul Of a City Boy, he has articulated and recorded the tumultuous times of the 60s, 70’s, 80’s to the present, while reminding us that it is all about family, community and the precious natural world we live in. His musical style is now considered Americana, but in fact it’s his unique fusion of jazz, blues, folk and rock with an emphasis on his extraordinary voice that makes his signature sound. The Youngblood’s version of “Get Together” has been heard by millions from the Forrest Gump soundtrack in 1994, Cats and Dogs: Revenge of Kitty Galore, Fear and Loathing in Los Vegas, The Simpsons “Oh Brother where Bart thou” and “Tree of Horror II”, and South Park’s “Smug Alert”.
ABOUT The Band – In March 2016, Jesse traveled to Boston for his son’s,Tristan, recital at the Berklee College of Music, and he was blown away. It was then that he realized he wanted these young musicians from around the world to join him to play his music, both the hits from the past and his new ones from this year. Jesse’s dream is in full effect involving musicians from Europe, Asia, Indonesia and America coming together to shine a light on us during these challenging times. The band features Virginia Garcia Alves, backup vocals; Sally Stempler, backup vocals; Donnie Hogue, drums; Aleif Hamdan, electric guitar; Jack Sheehan, sax; Tristan Young, bass; JennHwang Wong, keyboard.
