“I first saw Steve at Chris Difford’s Songwriting Retreat and immediately recognised that he combines incredible guitar playing with warm and sensitive songwriting – he’s a top talent'”

“Steve manages to blend English reserve with American folk to come up with something truly authentic. If Jack Johnson came from Welwyn Garden City, this is probably what he’d sound like”

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 ARTICLESteve Young, highly recommended Bands to hire

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

Steve Young, highly recommended Bands to hire

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

I downloaded Troubadour today and I love it! 
Steve has created a unique blend of country and rock and fused his guitar skills and vocals into a one-of-a kind album. It’s honestly hard to pick favorites on the album because each song brings something new to the album. 
The Intro sets up the country-rock melodies that give the album a smooth flow. Life Changes in a Heartbeat is one of my favorites and is such a sweet ballad. Truth in Life almost gives me a feel of Bob Dylan’s early music, and Home for the Summer reminds me of classic Fleetwood Mac. Steve’s amazing guitar playing on Sweet Mary gives off a 60’s feel to me. This is definitely an album that can be put on repeat!
Overall, the album is a hit and I give it 5 out of 5 stars! Keep up the great work Steve!

“It’s only a matter of time until Steve Young breaks through.  Great vocals and musicianship and really likeable songs!”

“Having stood ’20 feet from stardom” for many years Steve Young was overdue stepping into the spotlight in his own right but it has been worth the wait. His new album Troubadour is a great listen. Every song is self penned by Steve and his feeling for melody and harmony shines throughout. There are several tracks that will stay with you after one listen. 

The bluesy Old Friend demonstrates his great voice as well as his guitar playing. I challenge you not to think about Mark Knopfler during the guitar breaks. In my dreams is a commercial hit with a fabulous hook in the chorus. The whole experience is enhanced by the high quality of musicians that Steve has gathered around him.I could go on but I would just say get the album and sit back and listen to every track in one sitting. Worked for me” – Alex Nairn – Brooklands Radio
