The Savage Young
The Savage Young is an up and coming rock band from Southern California. Their influences range from the Arctic Monkeys, to Muse, MCR, Led Zeppelin, and The Beatles.
Growing up in a suburban neighborhood of Santa Clarita, California, Wyatt Pendleton found solace in all things artistic. A student of acting, guitar and singing, Pendleton was an avid participant in show choir and theatre at Golden Valley High School. It was not until 2 years after high school when Pendleton collaborated with childhood friend and guitar player Adam Burton, in search of creating a raw, original sound they could call their own. ~~~nWhile attending Point Loma University in San Diego, Pendleton met drummer Brad Sewell. Sewell, who was determined to play music professionally, propositioned that they begin a serious project with fellow bassist Jordan Brownlee. The band began practicing immediately, with Burton and Pendleton driving a weekly three hour commute to meet with Sewell and Brownlee.~~~n"The Savage Young" band name was chosen by Pendleton because of a vintage show poster for The Beatles, which read "The Savage Young Beatles." The members being big fans of both classic and modern rock, have many influences in their music, ranging from Paul McCartney, Muse to Refused.~~~nEager to release music, the first demo recorded by The Savage Young was done in Sewell's Escondido home on Logic software. With their home demo in hand and fourteen t-shirts financed out of their own earnings, the band played and headlined their first show at the Epicenter in San Diego. The band received positive feedback, which encouraged them to enter their first battle of the band competition at the Dragonfly in Hollywood. Their talent and confidence was reaffirmed when the band took home first place and won a spot in the following round at The Gorilla Music Festival.~~~nWith the Gorilla Music Festival coming up in June, the band has just released their new 11-track E.P. at Studio West in Escondido. They released their debut record at the San Diego House of Blues on May 31st! Their record is now available on Itunes, Spotify, and hard copy upon request. [+]
