Dream Endorsement? Check!

With the arrival of this beauty, I’m so proud to call myself a Warwick bass artist!

HarrisonYoungWarwickI remember working at a music store in New Jersey as a teenager and paying a little too much attention to a particular thumb bass they had on their wall, “tuning” and “dusting” it about every 15 minutes, so it’s literally a childhood dream come true to finally have a Warwick of my own, especially straight from the source!

Catch my new Corvette on stage with me for the first time later this month as The Cards play Jazz’in De Gracht in Den Haag! Finally, many thanks to the fine people at Framus & Warwick for their excellent service and new friendship.

Jazz in de Gracht 2018!

I’m thrilled to announce that I’ll be headlining the opening night of this year’s Jazz in de Gracht festival in Den Haag! I’ll be debuting a handful of brand new original songs with some incredible players by my side including Gidon Nunes Vaz, Boris Oud, Urvin Doornkamp, and my old HY Quartet comrade, Nicholas Indalecio all the way from NYC!

New Documentary Now Online!

I’m very happy to share with you this film by my friends at Eagleeyeartz Productions. What began as a short documentary following my first Dutch festival performance at last year’s Nacht Van De Kaap in Rotterdam somehow expanded into a pretty comprehensive look at my entire music career up until now from my early days with EBE and Earth Minor to my metal years with Doro and U.D.O. all the way to my current life in jazz. Alongside stories and feelings on each phase, paired with behind the scenes and live concert footage, this documentary seems to also capture many of my over-arching theories on music as a whole. Please watch and share at youtube.com/harrisonyoungmusic and many thanks to Ilya, Kees, and everyone involved for your hard work in making this happen.

Hello, 2018!

Last year may have been a strange one for our world at large, but I’ll always remember 2017 as a landmark year in my life and career. In addition to my first year of fatherhood, I somehow managed to compile three separate repertoires of music which I toured around the world, reaching from the shores of the Sea of Japan to the Port of Rotterdam. I also released my seventh album of original music via Little Neon’s ‘All The Glitters’ and started a new project and album with a a true rock legend which is almost complete. (News on that coming soon…)

2018 looks to be just as interesting, with shows already lining up across Europe, Russia, and maybe even my old stomping ground, New York City. More to come as it all comes together. Until then enjoy this performance from my last tour of my take on David Bowie’s “Life On Mars?” live in Novosibirsk, RU with the Vladimir Tolkachev Big Band.
