Bio

From sold out stadiums to intimate clubs, Jess Colin Young has played them all, in a career that has spanned almost 40 years.

His band the Youngbloods struck gold with the number three single "Get Together", first released in 1967, then re-released in 1969 to become a national hit. This was after it was used in a public service announcement TV commercial for the National Council of Christians and Jews. Its message was intended to help end racism.

The Youngbloods disbanded in 1972, but Jesse found even greater success as a solo artist. Six of his albums charted on the Billboard Top 100. The 1973 release "Song for Juli" stayed on the chart for nearly a year. Recent shows have reunited Jesse with the surviving members of the Youngbloods, guitarist Jerry Corbitt and keyboardist Lowell "Banana" Levinger.

Career highlights include co-founding the No Nukes Movement in the 70's and continuiing today to play for various political and social causes.
