Neil C. Young
Neil C Young is an extremely gifted guitarist who is establishing his unique talent internationally. Recent commercial success in India with his composition 'Next' being included on 'Goa Chillout Zone Vol.2' from WOA Records, saw it reaching number 2 in the Indian Album Charts by Oct 09.
In a contemporary musical climate which is often overcrowded with an eclectic range of guitar styles, Neil not only acknowledges these various influences, but also displays an in-depth knowledge of performance and composition, which were key to his studies at Birmingham Conservatoire.
His performance and playing delights in playful, fresh and beautiful harmonic interpretations of both standards, and original compositions.
