The Youngers: Heritage

The Youngers
Obuck Records [2008]

Fire Drills Review:
The Youngers represent what real Americana music is all about - solid sing-a-long anthems, solid songwriting, solid stories and a solid and believable lead vocal. The Youngers are entrenched in the authenticity of their music even down to having their sophomore record Heritage produced by John Carter Cash and recorded in the historic studios of Cash Cabin. The band has released an excellent album that kindles the best of Springsteen, Young and Parsons while setting their own path and tackling the genre with a modern flare!

Key Track: "Heritage"

Band With Similar Fire: Drive-By Truckers
