Leron Young

It’s testament to veteran electric guitarist, Leron Young’s artful, perfectly in the pocket composing skills, that the ultra-melodic, deep grooving original urban-flavored tunes on his album COMPILATIONS actually surpass the joys of his clever twists on familiar R&B and jazz classics. While his crackling licks are always front and center, Young enhances them with colorful synth harmonics and engaging vocal textures. In addition to being an accomplished guitarist, Leron is an electrical engineer, music teacher, member of the Bowie State Community Jazz Orchestra and author of a new book that makes the connection between engineering, music and human growth and development.  

Leron grew up in Washington D.C. His mother gave him a small guitar at the age of 8 years old. He taught himself to play at an early age and got professional training later in life. He was the guitar player for the Unifics, The Five Stairsteps, The Fuzz and other artist. He played guitar on Chuck Brown’s Bustin Loose album and played guitar with Luther Ingram in the movie Watts Stax featuring Issac Hayes, The Bar-Kays and other Stax artist. Along with running his business, Leron has a book and three Cd’s available for purchase.
