a few extra tracks from Cheyenne
April 30, 2019
1. Los Angeles (Acoustic)
2. Lemonade (Acoustic)
3. Yellowknife (Acoustic)
Comprised of 13 tracks, Youngblood’s debut album is the culmination of two years of extensively seeing the world, resulting in a record that involves travel and nature, but also the grounding aspects of the people Youngblood has encountered along the way. Whether it’s what Youngblood humbly puts down as “musical ADHD” or sheer talent – Cheyenne is the work of a musical polymath. Where most musicians are relatively happy with picking up a guitar and sailing away on a few chords, Youngblood can be found darting from one instrument to the next. Cheyenne features no less than 30 different instruments – a harp, a bass clarinet, a tabla, and more – all of which are played by Youngblood on a record featuring no guests.
