Jeff Young

From Megadeth, Jeff was in the unsigned LA glam metal band Broken Silence for 2 years, and wrote the cult-classic Fingerprints column in Guitar for the Practicing Musician magazine. He also began intensive study of the blues with legendary guitarist, Steve Hunter (Peter Gabriel, Lou Reed, Alice Cooper, Jason Becker). In 1998, he resurfaced with new Brazilian musical partner, Badi Assad. Together, the duo crafted exotic soundscapes for Verve/PolyGram records collaboration entitled, Badi Assad's Chameleon. The album (co-written, arranged, and produced by Jeff), climbed to the top of the world music charts in Germany & Holland also topping JAZZIZ magazine's Readers Poll: "Best Brazilian Albums of the Year." Opening concerts for renowned artists including Joe Cocker and Cassandra Wilson, as well as performances on 1999's Lilith Fair and Farm Aid 2000 are testament to the considerable cross-over appeal of Badi and Jeff's "new world music" explorations. Thanks to Jorgen Carlsson, we feature "Pure Herringbone" and "Songs From The Red Wurlitzer" Then Carlsson's band Little Days (managed by Hilleary), featuring Jeff Young, had us poised as he emerged from this pandemic, Young created two new albums Poets & Point Guards I & II, all here at WACBIZ!!
