Brian Young - Blues guitarist, singer songwriterBlues guitarist, singer-songwriter Brian Young is a member of the Unstarving Musician community–the list. A while back, he reached out to check in with me. I’m always asking the community and you listeners how you’re doing. Like Ezra said last episode, music is a collaborative experience between community and musician and I feel that extends into what I'm doing here. Brian took time out to thank me and to share his own personal update. He shared with me that he’d lost his wife Becky of 43 years to cancer. Becky was also manager of his blues band.

Brian recently published the last album that he and Becky worked on with his band, Blues Station. In her honor he’s been donating a portion of the proceeds of his latest CD to Stand Up 2 Cancer. We talk about all of this, how and where he and Becky met, his surprising early influences, his life and music memories, the greatness of blues jams and some great songwriting advice.
