After a short break from the music scene, Singer/Songwriter Blaine Younger is back at it. Over the past year Blaine has focused his energies on his songwriting craft through education, research, cowrites, networking, visits to Nashville, demo sessions, and becoming an active member of NSAI. “I just couldn’t stay away - it’s in my blood. At this point in my life - with a beautiful wife and twin boys - songwriting has been a perfect avenue to get back to the music”.
Blaine started on piano at the age of 5, grabbed a six-string in high school, and wrote his first tune at the age of 18. Influences ranged from Garth to Mellencamp to Willie, eventually settling in on a country/rock sound. After graduating from Kansas State University, he released his first original acoustic album and moved to Nashville for a short time. Little did he know his most accomplished years would be when he returned to his Kansas roots.
From 2005 to 2010 Blaine toured Kansas and bordering states with The Blaine Younger Band. From Country Stampede to county fairs to local dives - the BYB became everyone’s favorite party band. They released two original albums to iTunes and enjoyed regional radio play.
Now living in Kansas City - Blaine continues writing towards that “great” song for the “right” person to hear. “You just never know when something clicks”. Keep an ear out for new songs by Singer/Songwriter Blaine Younger.
