Young Man: Ideas of Distance

Young Man gets grown-up label.
Young Man is a solo artist based out of Chicago who first busted on the scene with his series of YouTube videos. KJHK also charted his debut album entitled Boy just last year. But now he has the backing from a proper label. Simply put, this guy is an extremely talented singer/songwriter. His compositions are powerful enough to outshine most of his peers even though his melodies are very soft, sincere, and simple. If you are looking for something easy going yet highly stimulating at the same time, then I can’t recommend this record enough.
