Feeling a bit camera shy


A studio singer, he is not. A producer driven artist, he is not. A star, he is. L. Young's style is the equivalent of what music used to be, ORIGINAL. With the recent flourish of such talented artists as the Nappy Roots, Black Coffey, Playa, and 7 of Murder, Inc., it was only inevitable that the Kentucky-bred singing sensation would soon take the music industry by storm. Taking a chaotic blend of Kentucky bluegrass music; country, gospel and hip-hop/R&B, L. Young has transformed it into a sound so smooth it could pour from a bottle of Southern Comfort!

Born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky, L. Young grew up singing and laying the drums for the youth choir in church. While at the Louisville Youth Performing Arts High School, he formed an acapella Gospel/Jazz/R&B quartet, WALC, which won the Grand Prize at the Youth Talent International competition, competing against over 1,400 acts from the U.S.and Canada.

In his music career, L. Young has graced the stage with such artists as Patti LaBelle, Sisqo, Toni Braxton, Busta Rhymes and Tyrese, just to name a few, Some of his other credits include, production of Babygirl (Terry's Theme) for B2K on the 2002 Barbershop Soundtrack, writing and production of "Without You" on the soon to be released second album from KeKe Wyatt and writing and production on several up and coming projects such as Envyi,A new and Na'shay. In addition, he co-wrote and co-produced the single "Like a Playa" that debuted on the Billboard Top 100 charts and was Radio & Retail Magazine's top #3 most added record in the country in its first three weeks on radio. L. later went on to have songs on the platinum selling Booty Call soundtrack, Dangerous Grounds, The Long Kiss Goodnight and Phat Beach soundtracks.
