JANUARY 20, 2011 - KENNY YOUNG is a Jersey boy with a Southern twang and a fondness for rock n roll blasting from below the Mason-Dixon Line (THE ALLMAN BROTHERS and LYNYRD SKYNYRD). Such influences were not difficult to single out on his 2009 debut EP ‘THE KENNY YOUNG PROJECT'. Now YOUNG has released his first full length LP 'SIMPLE DREAMS' (TOMMY NAPLES MUSIC) and that life long dream of a life in music has finally been realized. Back in the mid nineties, KENNY YOUNG was at a crossroads. Torn between family responsibilities and a life in rock n roll that wasn’t paying all of the bills, YOUNG did what GEORGE THOROUGHGOOD sang about. He cut his hair and he got a real job. Once his two sons were old enough (and had demonstrated a certain amount of musical ability of their own) YOUNG stepped back into the light armed this time with the record deal that eluded him years earlier.

ABOUT THE HOST:
BRIAN LUSH holds a BA in Creative Writing from the UNIVERSITY OF NEW MEXICO. He established ROCKWIRED on New Years of 2004 and hasn’t looked back since. He is currently the host of all of ROCKWIRED.COM's programming which includes such shows as ROCKWIRED RADIO PROFILES and ROCKWIRED FREE FORM RADIO. As program producer for ROCKWiRED.COM, LUSH is hands-on when it comes to interviewing and building a lasting rapport with the artists that come ROCKWiRED’s way. As a youngster, BRIAN LUSH had no idea what kind of seed was being planted by reading magazines such as HIT PARADE, HIGH TIMES, SPIN, REQUEST (remember that one?) and even ROLLING STONE. “Those were the days before the internet and being a rock journalist looked like the coolest job imaginable.” says LUSH “But reading these magazines had me imagining that one day I’d be the artist giving all of the clever answers to some poor guy with a tape recorder. Well, life has a way of surprising you. Now, I’m the poor guy with the tape recorder and asking all of the questions.”
