Richie Young Re-Releases Traveling Man Blues

As far as Maritime Blues goes, Richie Young is certainly becoming known well as a Travelling Man commuting from Maritime town to town playing his own brand of the Blues. Richie’s stripped down song writing style in not just this track but all of his, hearkens back to the days of yore when the travelling musician on his own with his guitar strapped over his back, a small suitcase in tow, traveled from town to town peddling his music for small crowds in dark and dingy Blues bars and in these days of change modern independent breweries.

The track ‘Travelling Man Blues’ is everything any Blues fan could ask for, gravely vocals with a slinky twang, the harmonica almost acts as though it’s Richie’s own back ground vocals and of course Richie’s soulful guitar strumming brings this track together as a memorable and comforting tune filled to the brim with more Blues than any fan could ask for.

Jake Cormier hits the UGA Recording Studio

We here are the Underground Alliance Recording Studio had a fantastic time working Jake Cormier’s first session with us. A regular partner in crime to Richie Young, Cormier is well adapt to a similar style of the blues, with a little more traditional rock n’ roll fuelling his fire.
Throughout the evening of Jake’s session, we completed a original single, and wrapped up with a video performance of another of his tunes. Richie even stopped in to lay down a saucy harmonica track. The first thing that really stood out to me when working with Jake, was his voice. He may be a little soft spoken to talk to in person, but it was a whole other level when he opened up in front of the mic. Smooth, deep, powerful, and on pitch. Some of the most impressive vocals before hitting an FX chain that I’ve had the pleasure to work with.

Folk & Blues Night @ CSAC, Show Review from Underground Al

Hello music maniacs! it’s your pal Al here. The scene was serene as sound waves corroded my spleen. I’m still wiping off my trench coat after my face was melted and my ears caressed on the cusp of Charlotte Street’s finest venue. Richie Young snatched the stage and brought exactly what we expected. A Hoochie Coochie Man in his own right, A Howlin’ Wolf in his own despair and a Smokin’, Tokin’ , Jokin’ titan of a little thing we call The Blues.

I had the pleasure of seeing Young down in the depths of our quaint river city about a year ago doing his thing and doing it well. Guitar case open, harp around his neck and nothing but the day to burn away. His style alone is enough to turn heads but his sound will completely spin that sucker right off your shoulders. As he tapped his toe to his rendition of Little Walter’s “My Babe”, I thought the sidewalk was going to crack and the concrete pieces were going to start dancing as sensually as the hairs on Richie’s lip.
