Neil Young is a Canadian rock singer-songwriter and musician hailing from Toronto, Ontario. Born in 1945, he’s now one of rock’s greats, boasting a career that has spanned over 40 years - and an incredible 34 studio albums.
Co-founding the band Buffalo Springfield in 1966 and joining Crosby, Stills & Nash as a fourth member in 1969, he released his eponymous debut solo album in 1968, starting what was to be a hugely-successful and critically-acclaimed career in rock and roll.
Young’s songwriting prowess and musical talent has seen him entered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame not once, but twice, firstly as a solo musician, and then as a member of Buffalo Springfield. He’s also no stranger to an award-ceremony, and is still picking up accolades today, receiving a Grammy for Best Rock Song and three Juno Awards in 2011, one for Artist of the Year.
His live performances are worth a mention too, as he is set to co-headline British Summer Time in Hyde Park and Kilkenny's Nowlan Park with Bob Dylan in July 2019. Catch him live by checking out the tour dates and ticket information on Stereoboard below.
