"Melodic prog rock - you might hear musical influences such as Genesis, Rush, Pink Floyd, Neal Morse in various guises - and many other prog/classic rock artists 

Soulful guitar work, crunching Rickenbacker bass, multiple layering of acoustic guitars and keyboards, long format song structures with recurring themes, piano ballad interludes and some hard-hitting lyrics"

released 15 November 2014

Very nice find indeed...but scant info on the web about him. He is on cdbaby too though: http://www.cdbaby.com/Artist/DavidYounger1, but even they have little info about him other than:
"David has been writing songs for over 20 years – driven by a lifelong love of great music, in particular late 60s and 70s progressive (and classic) rock. Favourite bands emerged as Genesis, Rush, Pink Floyd and Yes, supplemented in more recent years by Spock’s Beard, Transatlantic and solo work by Neal Morse.

David’s prog upbringing is evident in his long format song structures with recurring themes, piano ballad interludes and some hard-hitting lyrics.

Soulful guitar work features on much of David’s work – you might hear influences such as Alex Lifeson, David Gilmour, Steve Hackett and Steve Rotherey, plus snippets of Francis Dunnery and others. This is supplemented by crunching Rickenbacker bass lines influenced by Geddy Lee and Chris Squire, complemented by multiple layering of 6 and 12 string acoustic guitars, mellotron, bass pedal and additional keyboards."
 
This guy needs to open a facebook account and try and get the word out a bit more!

Thank you for adding CDBaby link Yam Yam, and I'm glad that you like Mr Younger's music as I do Thumbs Up
Yea, I already sent an e-mail to him (via his Bandcamp page) and asked him to give me the link to his Facebook page as when a policeman on night patrol with a flashlight shining on the face of the suspected person from which seeks identification card LOL
However, I hope that above brief biography from CDBaby and the link to the full-stream at Bandcamp will be enough for the team's pre-eval while Mr Younger is not in Facebook yet Smile

Don't worry much about the bio, we will dust the internet pages and find enough info, it's music that matters and so far this has been quite cool...two yes votes as of today and waiting one more member for his opinionWink
