Debut Single Impacting Country Radio & Companion Video Goes Live Today, Turns Heads With Hard-Hitting Rock Edge
Modesto-based newcomerÂ Vince YoungsÂ rolls like a freight train throughÂ “My Turn.”Â A surefire hit with a pounding groove, raw guitar hook and Vince’s formidable vocals – the performance offers equal parts Rock, Country and Blues, all contoured to his deep down-home twang.Â The release is impacting Country radio now – and theÂ companion videoÂ goes live today.Â Available to radio viaÂ Play MPEÂ and to fans onÂ iTunes,Â AmazonÂ andÂ CDBaby, this is Youngs’ debut single – and the title track from his upcoming EP.
“My Turn,”Â was written by former Exile founding member/B-3 player extraordinaireÂ Bernie FaulkerÂ andÂ Keith Harling.Â Recorded at The Sound Kitchen with Faulkner at the helm, A-List players proved their worth on a track that shouts with energy.Â Grounded byÂ Brian Allen‘s bass andÂ Wes Little‘s drums,Â Greg Bieckshines on keyboards, whileÂ Mike DurhamÂ shreds the guitar.Â Â Ron WallaceÂ adds his distinctive background vocals to the sing-along chorus – and helps create an anthem for fans of today’s New Country.Â The outing is a tribute to the raw outlaw sound of icons Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings, and to this generation’s superstars, Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan.
Early radio reviewers are giving Vince a shout out:
“It’s not that often that a first listen to a song stops me dead in my tracks and compels me to listen right to the end, then play it again, and again … the complete package, voice, song, guitar work.”
– Don Chisholm,Â KCR 107.7 FM (North East Scotland)
“Loved the song, the video and he’ll get a lot of air time on the show.”
-Bernie Doyle, America’s Country Connection Video show
“When the chorus came around again, I couldn’t help but sing along … great debut song.”
– Kellie,Â Bring Country 2 UK
“Good honest Country rocker that’s going to get played and people will come back to.Â Love a song that knows when to finish.Â In between it rolls like a train – stop playing and the song would carry on under its own impetus.”
– Eddie Stuart,Â KCR 107.7 FM (North East Scotland)
Played every neon honkytonk and roadhouse
Almost died so many times I lost count
Paid my dues picking cash and straight
Now it’s my turn to do it my wayÂ (Faulkner/Harling)
The visually-arresting black and white video, directed byÂ Michael Giancana of Paradestormer Productions (“Texas Road,” “Baby Blues,” “Making It In Music City”),Â features tight shots in a “neon honkytonk” and early morning exterior shots of Vince dancing on the asphalt of the bar’s parking lot.Â Gritty, realistic and pulsing with bare-bones energy, the clip is a punch-in-the-gut attention-grabber that takes hold and doesn’t let go.
ABOUT VINCE YOUNGS
The Modesto, California native is a country boy, raised in a house surrounded by five acres of gently rolling, sun-drenched pastureland. Â After four years as a U.S. Marine and time spent as a semi-pro baseball player, with a brief foray into retail sales, Youngs is now pursuing a career in music. Â It’s something the soft-spoken, semi-shy “nice guy” never considered – until a friend put him on stage not long ago and handed him a microphone.Â For Vince, it was like coming home … or finding an alter ego. Â Once in the spotlight, he found the drive to make his own music, and he hasn’t stopped pursuing that goal since the night of his epiphany. Â Raised in a devout household, he was exposed initially only to Christian music, both at home and at the church his family attended. Â Vince discovered Country music and soon learned to love both the raw outlaw sound of the past as well as those who sing to his generation.Â A world-class line and swing dancer (who still teaches both styles even now), Vince is currently busy writing, putting the final touches to his upcoming debut EP – and living his newly-found honky-tonk dream.
