Biography

In a crowd, he'd be easy to spot: He's the one standing just apart from the pack, inquisitive and meditative, his quiet interrupted by his own deafening thoughts. And, oh yeah: He'd be the one discreetly observing YOU. Thats who Keite Young is, a zealous voyeur awestruck by the parade of humanity called life. The burning interpretation of his sensitive, poignant annotations comes out in, as he wryly puts it, The Wash--which, in this case, is his music. During "The Rise and Fall of Keite Young", his debut Hidden Beach CD set for release in early Spring 2007, the singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist channels the musical passion and adventure of Al Green, Muddy Waters, Sly Stone and the Beatles to artfully create his own singular, dynamic space of storied, gospel-tinged, soul barn-burning and unrelenting live rock and funkified grooves. Born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas, Youngs dichotomy is rooted in a large family ruled by spirituality and music. His mother and father both sang and toured in fellow Texan Kirk Franklins group The Family . Young himself sang lead vocal on Let My People Go, Franklin/Familys contribution to 1998s The Prince of Egypt soundtrack, and he joined his parents as a performer during Franklins Nu Nation Tour. Listen up and bear witness to The Rise and Fall of Keite Young, current emphasis being the rise.
