Mr. F I absolutely love this record! Literally never heard anything like it. I love how its written like a rock / easycore thing but all in wacky 8 bit sounds!! I never even knew you could make music on a Gameboy! Insanely good. Favorite track: Homeward Bound.

"Young" is about never growing up.
It's about the stories from the past that you will never forget.
It's about the feeling you get when you're with your best friends.
It's about being fearless and facing the world with tenacity.
It's eleven songs that represent who I am, and I couldn't be more proud of this album.
I hope you enjoy.

Biggest shout out and thanks to everyone at Play It Loud for not only releasing this album, but for giving me my first show, taking me to places I would have never thought I'd go, and for just being great friends. Also thanks to everyone at Tiny Waves, Chiptunes = Win, and all of the musicians I've met and/or performed with for continuing to inspire me. Lastly I'd like to thank anyone who has supported me in the past or in the future by buying this album. It means the world <3.
