Brooks Young started playing acoustic guitar at the age of ten and moved to the electric guitar in his early teens. Young's main influences were the blues and his grandfather who was a well-known country guitarist. By his late teens, Young's blues career had begun by playing alongside Jerry "The Reverend" Paquette of the Kan-Tu Blues Band. By the age of 24, he opened for blues legend B.B. King. Since then, the Brooks Young Band has earned opening slots for a number of established artists including Room Full of Blues, Luther "Guitar" Johnson, and James Montgomery with J. Giles.
However, Brooks Young has proven himself to be much more than a blues guitarist. Young (a Fender endorsed artist) has developed a unique voice as a song-writer, incorporating elements of pop and rock into his music. A smart blend of melody, blue-infused guitar, and tight grooves can be heard on the band's debut EP "Back On The Ground."
Today, Brooks Young and his band are quickly making a name for themselves in New England's music scene. The band re-entered the studio in 2009 to begin work on their first full length album "Counting Down." The band sounds as comfortable in the studio as they do on stage. The album, set for release in May 2010, showcases why people are talking about the Brooks Young Band.
