David Youngs is a multi-instrumentalist based in Cambridge, UK.?In recent years he has focused intensely on the acoustic guitar, developing a percussive, finger-style approach to produce instrumental works?often featuring unusual yet accessible time signatures and scales.
With a vast range of musical interests and techniques drawn from over three decades of self-taught musicianship, it?s hard to pigeonhole David?s music with great precision. As R2 Magazine commented ?Trying to define Youngs? sound is a fruitless activity, I?m reminded of Michael Hedges? tongue-in-cheek shots at self-categorisation, most particularly ?new edge?: his compositions are plumped full of depth and atmosphere, but you sure as hell aren?t going to use them to soundtrack meditation.?
