Western Youth came together in the spring of 2011 when Matt Gregg and Taylor Williams met in Austin, TX. The two singer-songwriters had fronted their own bands for years, but found a new voice and dynamic when they began writing together. Although they were from opposite sides of the globe (Gregg, hailing from New Zealand), their shared love of Americana, Rock ‘n Roll, and Country music allowed them to collaborate like old friends right from the start.
‘Leaving The Station,’ the band’s self-released debut EP, staggers between Rock n’ Roll, Folk, Alt Country & Psychedelia to create a sound that’s all their own. Recently, David Ramirez said the record “reminds me of the first time I heard Whiskeytown. That’s a good thing.”
‘Leaving The Station’ was released April 9th, 2013. Western Youth are currently playing shows and recording their debut full length album due for release in early 2018.
