ABOUT

I am Oscar Young. I am a guitarist, saxophonist and singer. I practice various styles, but I'm most proficient in rock and blues. I can read and write standard music notation, and am well versed in Western music theory. I've got chops and live performance experience. My sharp ear for tone allows me to jam and improv vigorously with almost any group of people who have the music in them.

I've been jamming around Columbus for a few years now, but I would very much like to hook up with some more serious musicians like myself who are willing to put in some work to achieve the most show-stealing result possible.

I love to play improv ensemble, but I tend to lean more towards the Frank Zappa end of the jamming spectrum, constructing larger, orchestrated movements within the music as opposed to just taking turns soloing.

My voice is a deep tenor, dusky and a little smokey. I am multilingual and can sing in almost any language, accent or character.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any projects or information requests. I am a hard worker, and eager to play with new people all the time. If you email me in the a.m., chances are I'll be able to jam this evening.
