Over the last few years Syd Young has been busy writing songs and documenting them in his small home studio. When he finally made the decision to record them, he played them to some people and they quickly hooked him up with well respected Australian musician/producers Matt Fell and Sam Hawksley, who took on the project and quickly and efficiently got it onto disc. The result is Syd's debut album 'Dirty Life' recorded in two main sessions. A resident of Sydney, Australia, Syd grew up in a musical family and has always played guitar and written songs. After graduating from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, Syd began playing solo as well as in several bands to earn his keep, before venturing into the studio with a batch of his original compositions. Syd's debut album 'Dirty Life' showcases the quality of his songwriting and distinctive voice. "This particular batch of songs came together pretty quickly. After recording the first session, I went home and wrote about another 12 songs which we narrowed down to 6. There are a few songs about people I know such as 'State of Grace', 'Dirty Life', and 'Written all over you', and several about my experiences and sense of world weariness at the time such as 'Invisible', 'Nowhere to go now', and 'Ridicule'. There are also a couple of songs about relationships such as 'Tuesday' and 'Pull off my skin'". "It has certainly taken me a while to get this album released but it's good to have it done and to finally let some people hear it."
