Bio

Young Colt began in early of 2012. Friend (Nick Elbisser) and I (Benjamin Hines) decided to play music together as a way to create and challenge ourselves. I had been in and out of a few bands since high school, all of which I cut my teeth on guitar but had only begun singing in 2010 when I got inspired listening to a Jeff Buckley interview where he had described his talents as nothing extraordinary just something he worked very hard for. In a year of Karaoking that provided confidence training I knew I could write songs with the guitar and I decided it was time to hear what they'd sound like accompanied by my voice. After a few months I wanted to develop the song-writing experience and had begun hearing percussive parts along with other instruments. I had attempted to get something together with various drummers and multi-instrumentalists but none seemed to share the idea of a lo-fi, stripped down approach to creating songs. In comes Mr. Elbisser. Nick a longtime friend, had played drums off and on but had never taken the step into working as a performing musician. After a few months of correspondence, we had begun to fit my songs to his drum-work. Being artists and avid listeners to many genres of music, we weren't sure what was gonna happen; Soon, by the summer of 2012 we had moved in together and had begun performing locally anywhere we could get booked, in the Fall we recorded our debut EP 'Fightin' (2012), featuring six songs, by November we took the step to expand on our arrangement capabilities and employed the talents of two more musicians which we've dubbed The Dirty Herd and began writing a new EP with a broader scope of audible feeling. For 2013 we are committed to writing, performing and recording more than we could have imagined given where we were only a year ago.
