The Youngers: Heritage

Pennsylvania-based country rock band The Youngers don't sound young at all. No wonder that their named their sophomore album Heritage. They follow the traditional arrangements and sing about love affairs that end up in misery and driving along lonesome roads. They have mastered their instruments creating a warm down home sound, the kind of album you will be listening to on the porch with your friends, watching the sun go down.

The bulk of the material on Heritage was composed by band leader Todd Bartolo, with the exception of The Ride and Our Little Secret by bass player Randy Krater (whose vocals sounds a lot like Brett Sparks of the Handsome Family).

The Youngers:
Todd Bartolo: vocals, guitar, lap steel, mandolin
Randy Krater: vocals, bass
Dax Bryan: guitars
Justin Schaefer: drums, percussion
