E.N Young On His Own

In addition to a packed 2015 schedule with Tribal Seeds, E.N Young has his own tour to do. The roots/rock/reggae artist just announced a May/June solo outing – his first since releasing his sophomore album in January.

Live Love Stay Up debuted at No. 3 on the iTunes Reggae Chart.

DJ Alex Crowley of WUTK The Rock 90.3 is a big fan of the release. He says, “You don’t just listen to this record, you feel it.” Young put out three versions of the LP – an original, dub and acoustic, showing his different strengths as an artist and producer.  

Young, who plays keyboards in Tribal Seeds, has a few festival appearances lined up with the band before he embarks on his own. This weekend Tribal Seeds plays Reggae On The Block Music Festival in Orlando, Fla. Tribal Seeds and Young are both set to take the stage at California Roots Festival in Monterey, Calif., May 24.

The solo tour begins in Young’s hometown of Chula Vista, Calif., May 20. He’ll be joined on the road by his brand-new backing band, Imperial Sound.
