David Youngs is a multi-instrumentalist based in Cambridge, UK. In recent years he has been focusing intensely on the acoustic guitar, developing a percussive, finger-style approach to produce instrumental works often featuring unusual yet accessible time signatures and scales. His playing has been compared to that of the late great Eric Roche, crossed with touches of the freedom and lightness heard on Michael Hedges' early works. Earlier this year David was also fortunate enough to attend a study workshop with Preston Reed ('widely thought of as the world's most gifted guitarist' - Total Guitar) and he continues to develop his style to further what has been an entertaining and personal musical journey to date. Recent reviewers of his solo acoustic work have commented that he seems to have 'appeared fully formed out of nowhere'; although in reality his latest solo acoustic guitar album TRANSIENCE is the product of several years of adapting drum and bass guitar rudiments for incorporation into his finger-picked acoustic guitar style. This draws upon his many years of experience as a drummer and bassist in jazz, funk and rock bands. It's very difficult to single out stand out tracks on his debut album as each one is a masterpiece in it's own right, individually framing moments in time on a unique musical journey. Having already appeared alongside notable artists such as Emily Barker and the Red Clay Halo and Miranda Sykes and Rex Preston, it's guaranteed that you're going to be hearing a lot more about David Youngs in the not too distant future.
