Post #245: Youth Lagoon

***Played at 7th Street Entry last Wednesday.  New album
released in May.***

If I were to ask you what artists hail from Idaho, you might be able to name Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue fame, or possibly Josh Ritter, whom I posted HERE, HERE and HERE.  Well now you can name a third.

This last week, Youth Lagoon stopped by the 7th Street Entry for a set.  Unfortunately, I didn't see this video until that day.

Trevor Powers wrote most of his material between classes while attending Boise State University, recording his debut album in his bedroom, kitchen and 4 car garage.

After posting his first song online, it got enough attention to land him a two album deal with Fat Possum Records.

His first album, The Year of Hibernation, was released in May of this year, and "Montana" is track number seven.  I would suggest also checking out the songs "17" and "The Hunt".

Let's hope this is just the beginning and that it won't be long before his return to Minnesota.

Please support this artist!!!
