The Young Sinclairs: This is The Young Sinclairs (Ample Play Records, 2014)

Esta recopilación de Ample Play Records es a su vez un compilado de varios discos editados por la banda de Virginia The Young Sinclairs. Todo un canto a la música y el sonido de los sesenta-setenta, el Pop, la Psicodelia, el Power-Pop y otras hierbas…

“Chief singer/songwriter Samuel J. Lunsford will make you a believer, taking the vibe of 60’s heroes and truly making it his own. His voice, multi-talented musicianship and world-class songwriting have remained a constant throughout the band’s tenure, often handling all the instruments and vocals on their records himself (Oh yes – the records. So far The Young Sinclairs have released two LP’s, three 7-inches, seven CD’s, two cassettes, and appeared on numerous compilations). John Thompson engineers and mixes the majority of their recordings and up until recently played drums for the group. Another prolific writer and multi-instrumentalist, in the band’s new lineup he currently plays guitar, his main instrument, and is simply uncanny. Along with John, bassist/guitarist/vocalist Daniel Cundiff grew up in the green fields of Franklin County, known for its abundant White Lightning moonshine. Up until now, he mostly played bass exclusively in the group. Currently you’re likely to hear him stepping up to the mic and singing more of his own compositions, playing acoustic guitar on many of them. Apart from Samuel, he is the other main singer/songwriter of the group. He concurrently plays drums in the group Eternal Summers. Samuel’s older brother Joe now fills the drum seat. He grew up banging on Tupperware bowls as a toddler and graduated to a real drum kit at age 4. Him and Samuel have been playing music together all their life – and it shows. Apart from his masterful drumming, he also sings, writes, and plays guitar quite well. He is a genius sound engineer and built many of the band’s amplifiers and recording equipment himself. Rounding out the lineup is bassist/guitarist Kyle Harris, who also plays in the group The Diamond Center. Kyle met Samuel years ago in Athens, Georgia where they played a pick-up gig together at the Georgia Theatre accompanying local singer/songwriter Ken Will Morton. They ran into each other again when The Young Sinclairs started playing in Athens, after which Kyle and the rest of The Diamond Center moved to Texas. They hooked up again when Kyle and the band left Texas for Richmond, Virginia, where Joe was living. Kyle is a kindred spirit and seemed destined to eventually start playing with The Young Sinclairs. So there it stands”

The Young Sinclairs: You´re tied (Ample Pie Records, Single, 2014)

Reminiscencias sesenteras, Rock Ácido, guitarras Jangle… todos los elementos que nos gustan de cierto tipo de grupos. Adorables…

“From the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, they’re a ’60s-influenced group who’ve sworn allegiance to the jingle jangle sound of classic folk-rock and early stirrings of psychedelia.  To live is to grow and this young sycamore puts the listener on a firm branch in their tree. ‘This Is The Young Sinclairs‘ LP out 13th October”
