Jubal Lee Young Bio
His songs are reckless, deep and spiritual - meticulously crafted, delivered by an amazing voice that can go in a heartbeat from a falsetto whisper to a lions roar.
Jubal Lee Young is the only son of singer-songwriter Steve Young (Seven Bridges Road, Lonesome Onry and Mean) and Terrye Newkirk (My Oklahoma, Come Home, Daddy).
He grew up around the best of the 70's and 80's Country, Folk, and Bluegrass artists; his parents amazing circle of famous and infamous friends.
Along the way, he came up with a unique sound - encompassing the diverse styles of the musically fertile Southland, but with a genius for intelligent lyrics and wry humor that is altogether fresh.
