The Great North Road – Parr Street Studios – DAY ONE

Wow! Wow! Wow!

I had an amazing day at Parr Street earlier this week. The band were incredible, talented and FAST!!! It was very strange hearing these songs come to life. Having only played them solo it was a very creative and fluid process witnessing my songs transformed into pure magic by Producer Justin Johnson & the Band…

Here’s a short video clip I made of the day 🙂

A FREE EP to the first person to recognise the song in the background 🙂

Campaign ends on JUNE 23rd so don’t miss out 🙂

Save The Children UK

Hi folks,

Now I’ve hit my initial target I can start donating to my chosen charity. 10% of ALL new pledges will be paid to Save The Children UK

You can read more about this amazing charity by clicking the link below:


I still have a little way to go to complete my over-all goal but the studio is booked, musicians in place and we are getting ready to rock…. 🙂

Share with your friends and remember you can also ‘gift’ a CD to anyone you want 🙂



How fast time flies! A year ago I was in the middle of a campaign to release my debut album ‘Troubadour’ – amazingly I reached 158% of my target raising a whopping £6,500. Since then songs from the album have been featured on radio, including Bob Harris – BBC Radio2, Chris Country, Amazing, BBC6 and 100’s of online stations worldwide. ‘In My Dreams’ reached No.1 in the Hotdisc Industry Chart in the UK, EU & Ireland and is still there 3 months later. 6 Songs from the album were playlisted in over 650 stores by the high street coffee chain ‘Caffe Nero’ They also awarded me their ‘Artist Of The Month’ which included a 5000mile/35 store UK Tour during Jan & Feb.

So what now? Well, I have some new songs that I’ve been performing live for a while that haven’t been recorded, so I thought it was time to get back into the studio. Who better to be at the helm than the amazing Justin Johnson who, after moving from Nashville to the UK several years ago, has been the driving force behind many of the UK’s best known Americana/Country artists. Including Raintown, Thorne Hill, Mike Ward (Finalist on The Voice UK), Angie King and a long list that you can find on his website:

 I will be recording a ‘White Label EP’ which will be individually hand written, numbered, personalised and best of all – this EP will ONLY be available from Pledge Music. Not on Spotify, Not on iTunes, Not ANYWHERE except here. The idea behind this is to keep the songs ‘Unreleased’ (until at least 2018) so YOU will be the only ones that own them – almost like your own personal demo accept it will be recorded in Liverpool’s – Parr Street Studios whose clients also include Coldplay, Rihanna, Justin Bieber & The Coral to name a few…..

In My Dreams | #1 in the UK & Europe

steve-young_guitarist_singer_songwriter_hotdisc_number1The January Single ‘In My Dreams‘ is the UK & EU Number 1 on the Industry Hotdisc Chart

Hotdisc have been compiling monthly CD’s for the last 18 years and each month hundreds of DJ’s, Producers & Presenters receive and rate the songs, deciding whether to play them on their shows. A number one is a pretty strong indicator that a potential hit is in the making
