Neil Young is a legendary singer and songwriter born in Toronto, Canada 1945. His haunting vocals, and deeply philosophical lyrics have seen Young receive immense critical and historical fame.
Young had released two solo albums and three as a member of Buffalo Springfield by the time he joined Crosby, Stills & Nash in 1969. Earlier that year, Neil Young also released the iconic Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere with Crazy Horse, which earned him the nickname as the 'Godfather of Grunge'.
Neil Young has released 45 studio albums in his lifetime, many with long-term producer David Briggs, along with several Grammy's and two inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Neil Young first came to prominence as part of the influential Laurel Canyon scene, with up and coming recording record executive, David Geffen, as its champion. The cream of North American songwriting talent, such as Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne, David Crosby and Neil Young himself assembled in this Los Angeles neighbourhood. The creative sparks flew.
Young joined the supergroup, Crosby, Still, Nash and Young, for a brief time before striking out on his own, releasing his most famous album, Harvest, in 1971.
Even as he approaches old age, he remains Young by name, and spirit.
