Lionel Young Band, winners of the 2011 International Blues Challenge band competition, formed around the only person to win the IBC twice. Young first won the prize in 2008 for his solo performance, singing and playing his electric violin and slide guitar.
With Kim Stone on bass (Spyro Gyra, Rippingtons), rising trumpet star Andre Mali, Downbeat Finalist reedman Dexter Payne, Ricardo Peña on keys, and vocalist/drummer Jay Forrest, Young assembled a very special band. They burned a wide path of happy listeners, touring 2011-2013, mostly as a five piece band. A second record was cut, but this is the only issue available to date.
“This aint the kind of blues, that will bring you down.”
Please note: Lionel Young Band CDs are priced $22 USD ($28 international)
