Young and Rusty is a Folk and Americana duo from Austin, Texas. Sue Young's pure voice and Rusty Nelson's rough edged vocals combine in a perfect blend. The songs and sound on their debut recording Backroad Love evoke a simpler time; cruising down a country road, wading in a cool creek, or taking a ferry boat ride across the Mississippi.
Sue’s latest CD "Gliding" returns to her folk roots and earned her a 2013 Texas Music Awards Nomination for Female Vocalist Of The Year.
From the Artist:
For the last couple years I've been playing with my honky-tonk band. Which includes Electric Guitar, Bass and Drums. With rotating accompaniment on Fiddle, Steel Guitar, Banjo, Keyboard. We've played festivals, dive bars, campgrounds, country clubs, night clubs and living rooms. All in the name of spreading these songs.
I have a long story that includes living in teepees, RV's, my truck, in a tent, Alaska, Texas, Montana, love lost, love found, alot of late nights, early mornings, building mansions and living in hovels. But all of that probably deserves more than a line in a bio. It's all in the songs anyway.
What I can tell you is that I have an honest addiction to music. Listening, playing and writing are on my mind from the minute I wake up till the last tune I hum do go to sleep. I'm recording my first album "Sad Country Songs for Sale" slated for release in late 2018. Because the songs are a closest thing I have to to the constant melodies in my mind. Can you hear what I hear? Dig what I dig? Feel what I feel? Hurt how I hurt? Or dance how I dance? Give it a listen and we'll both find out.
Ready Betty all girlband takes you on a musical journey back in time. This time warp begins from 1940's swing, 1950's rockabilly and Groovy 1960's.
