Before their transformation to Bloodroot, Johnny Young the band have been creating powerful, driving sounds that borrow from both the heaviness of the '80s and the melodic accessibility of the post-grunge '90s rock. Live, they deliver the goods in a raw and vibrant fashion. Their second CD, Drone, is an excellent slab of darkly melodic hard rock that bashes together plenty of crunching riffs, a pulsing rhythm section and to-the-point lyrics with a dash of psychedelia to mix things up. However you care to define it, it's just good damn music that was meant to be enjoyed. The band has released two cds; Shed Your Skin in 1998, and Drone in 2000 as Johnny Young. During 2001, the band toured frequently playing clubs and colleges between Texas and Boston sharing stages with bands as diverse as Spacehog, Moke, Supafuzz, Agents of Good Roots, Spine, Smartbomb, Punchy, Ropetree, George Devore and many others. This three piece New York City based dynamo is garnering radio support and new fans at an unstoppable rate. The first single from Drone, 'Rain' was a southern regional break out on radio. (no payola either!) The band has released an E.P. and a full length album is expected in early 2003. This will be the first release from Bloodroot since 1997.
