About This Project
About .strandberg* Artist Yvette Young
Yvette Young was raised in a classical music household. She started
piano at age 4 and violin at age 7, eventually competing in
international piano competitions and touring with 2 different
orchestras. Through her classical music experience, she taught herself
how to play the acoustic guitar and eventually tackled the world of
electric guitar. Yvette became acquainted with Strandberg Guitars
through playing their Boden 7-string. She is currently touring and
playing with her band Covet and has been invited to Japan and Europe
to play shows.
In her spare time, Yvette takes care of birds, teaches
art to kids, and also produces drawings and paintings of her own.
Yvette takes most of her compositional inspiration from nature,
particularly the sea. Her two-handed tapping/finger picked playing
style has been described as “reminiscent of playing the piano”,
which makes sense with her classical upbringing.
