David Young


Music teacher/Musician living and playing in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. My preforming instruments are string bass and guitar, with an occasional tenor banjo, ukulele, and mandolin thrown into the mix. Influences are primarily jazz; Joe Pas, Django Reinhardt, Miles Davis, John Coletrane, Freddie Hubbard, Jaco Pastorius, Victor Wooten, etc., with a good mix of other stuff like, John Prine, Johnny Cash, Jorma Kaukonen, Tom Waits, Hank Williams Sr. and the like. 2014 was my first RPM Challenge. It was an amazing month. I have never really done any of my own recording prior to Feb 2014. In the last 40 years I may have created a half dozen songs of my own. I have played on many cassette and CD projects through the years for other peoples music but this was a first time complete project for me. I will be doing it again next year! Peace and good tunes to you, David
