Edge of Shadow
Curt Young belongs to the Saulteaux-Cree First Nation from Saskatchewan, Canada. He first picked up a guitar at age ten. Although he usually plays guitar, he is also proficient on drums, bass and piano. Curt started writing out some of his experiences, and those stories were published by New Tribe, AYN and SAY magazine in 2005. The support and encouragement he received for sharing some of his personal experiences triggered the idea to combine his love of playing with the release of writing. The change from writing stories to writing songs was natural since it's so much easier to reach a larger audience with music than with short stories. Since nothing really compares to performing live, Curt's passion for communicating with an audience found an outlet by being in front of a crowd. He is a natural and gifted entertainer. Sometimes gritty, sometimes downright blue, 'Edge of Shadow' is influenced by life on the reserve, the challenges of trying to fit in to city life, the distraction of pretty brown legs, the scandalous girl who got away.
