Sound waves Review READ INTERVIEW HERE

YES!! ” New Country UK” likes “New Country” from Steve Young UK!!
Indeed, he is a fantastic artist and ‪#‎Troubadour‬ is a fantastic album!! GO GET IT!!

It’s what used to be called Americana, touching on traditional country, but losing the twang in lieu of pop/rock. So it’s more for Eagles fans than it is for Waylon Jennings ones. And there are some rather nice tunes here.
After a brief intro, you’re off into the album highlight, “Out Of Our Minds”, which is a driving seventies country rock tune of the highest order. He gets a bit more New Nashville with the poppy “In My Dreams”, which would get some heavy airplay if he was over there instead of over here.
He goes all acoustic further on with the likes of “Old Friend” and “Life Changes In A Heartbeat”, but where he lays his hat he lands on gold. An excellent release which should do him a power of good – The Rocker (Blog)

Those who helped fund this Pledge campaign album will be well satisfied with their investment. It is a superb collection of songs from a singer with a great ear for a tune, and an album that you’ll keep returning to for a long time to come – Chris Farlie, W21 Music READ FULL ARTICLE

The collection of songs has a cool groove and a bit of swagger. It’s the sound of a laid back summer day. If forced to give some sort of comparison, I’d say that Steve Young’s music is a dose of Billy Joel’s vocals and songwriting, a dash of John Mayer’s blues on the guitar, a helping of Poco’s vibe, and a lot of Steve Young’s own uniqueness – Soundwaves Review READ FULL ARTICLE

Steve Young’s debut album, ‘Troubadour’ is both moving and deeply personal, with thirteen tracks ranging in style from pop and rock to country, and probably everything in between – Essentially Pop READ FULL REVIEW

All in all, a very accomplished debut album and one that’s worth repeated listens. There’s clearly a wide range of influences and I think Steve does a fine job of modernising some of the great singer-songwriters, whilst still keeping his own sound. Unusually, there are very few negatives about this album, the production is solid throughout, the melodies and harmonies work very well together and the vocals (and lyrics), as mentioned previously, are exceptional. Certainly an artist to keep an eye on for the future – Gigs Bands & Tours READ FULL REVIEW
