After 15 years of radio silence, my first band EBE has reformed to release a brand new album today. Listen to it now on over 250 platforms worldwide at li.sten.to/ebelives.
𝐄𝐁𝐄 𝐰𝐚𝐬 𝐦𝐲 𝐟𝐢𝐫𝐬𝐭 𝐛𝐚𝐧𝐝. It’s the name I used when I played my first gig back in the year 2000 at CBGB’s. It’s the band Daryl Anderson joined with me to play duo electro rock gigs all over the New York City area for almost a decade.
𝐄𝐁𝐄 𝐰𝐚𝐬 𝐦𝐲 𝐟𝐢𝐫𝐬𝐭 𝐛𝐚𝐧𝐝. It’s the band I made my first 3 albums with, channeling all my teenage hopes and dreams into every note, every mix, and every performance. It’s the band I first drove across the U.S. with and called it a tour.
𝐄𝐁𝐄 𝐰𝐚𝐬 𝐦𝐲 𝐟𝐢𝐫𝐬𝐭 𝐛𝐚𝐧𝐝. And after 15 years of silence and thousands of miles between us from The Hague to Los Angeles, Daryl and I made a new album and we’re back with 8 new EBE songs which can be heard right now at li.sten.to/ebelives 👽
My new single with Marie Chain, “Is This Really Love?” is available on all platforms worldwide as of today! Written and recorded remotely between Berlin and The Hague during the first lockdown, this song deals with the pressing question of “how do we find love during the digital age?” Our songwriting process mirrored the subject matter we were dealing with, as we wrote the song mainly over WhatsApp, Facetime, and Skype. Marie and I are incredibly proud of the final product and hope you love it as much as we do! Listen now on a platform of your choice at li.sten.to/isthisreallylove and stay tuned for the official video, coming this Sunday, 14 Feb!
I’m very excited to announce my next release, a dual single with an amazingly talented singer/singwriter from Berlin, Marie Chain. The song is called “Is This Really Love?” and you can Pre-Save it now on Spotify before it comes out on Friday, 12 February, with a video to follow on 14 February. Subscribe on YouTube now at linktr.ee/isthisreallylove.
The new year has brought yet another new project into my life, namely the Epic Nights Podcast! Join me every Friday with my co-host Bobbie Bones for tales of wild parties, epic failures, and much more. Episode 1 is now available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and anywhere that podcasts can be heard. Listen, subscribe and follow at epicnights.buzzsprout.com!
I’m thrilled to release some new music with The Cards this Friday, December 18th, namely our new single “The Gamble.” The song follows our adventures on the road in Europe this past February as Covid began to sweep the land, leaving us on a mad dash for home (and away from our big dreams). I’m proud to have been able to finally digest the experience and to convey it in a way that I hope will help others who have had similar dreams dashed this year due to this nasty pandemic. Listen to “The Gamble” on all platforms this Friday at thecards.hearnow.com!
I’m very excited to announce the partnership of my recording company Spaceage Productions and Kanjian Music 看见音乐, with whom I’ve signed a worldwide distribution deal, making my entire existing catalog and all upcoming future releases available in a multitude of new stores around the globe. Starting on 20 October, you’ll be able to hear the music of Harrison Young, The Cards, Little Neon, Earth Minor, and EBE, across all of Asia, Africa, The Middle East, and much more!
It’s been a busy time in my studio during quarantine, with lots of new music in the works with projects old and new. I’ve just added two new releases to my official discography playlist on Spotify: featured vocal spots on tracks by Luca Princiotta (of Doro) and Cesar Zuiderwijk (of Golden Earring). Listen now at tiny.cc/hydiscog.
Lots more coming soon from The Cards, my solo vault, and a big surprise from Little Neon coming sooner than you think… 😉 STAY TUNED!!!
I’m proud to share this recent trio performance featuring drummer Koen Herfst and bassist Boris Oud, filmed live on stage at Jazzcafe Dizzy in Rotterdam, NL. Thanks to Dizzy and Stichting Gillespie for finding unique ways of bringing music to the public during the Covid-19 era. Featuring songs from “A Home Is Not A Place” and more.
I’ve written a lot of songs over the years and released them with a lot of different bands like EBE, Earth Minor, Little Neon, and The Cards. On Saturday, the 9th of May, I’ll play some of my favorites by each of them on Facebook Live.
It’s free to watch, but if you feel like making a donation at paypal.me/harrisonyoungmusic I’ll give half to the MusiCares Covid-19 Relief Fund. MusiCares does great work year round for musicians in need all over the world but it‘s especially crucial during these trying times that we help our own.
