When you see that look in Brett Young’s baby blues, it isn’t too hard to understand what took this California boy from a ball field to the recording studio. His gritty vocals and impassioned lyrics are built on the same firm foundation that had him as a pre-draft selection of the Tampa Bay Devil Rays straight out of high school—hard work, sheer talent and that thing music industry execs and baseball talent scouts alike simply call heart. Those same qualities have gotten Brett’s songs placed on television shows like MTV’s The Real World and Kardashian pop culture favorite Kourtney and Kim Take New York, and his feet planted firmly on some of the most well-known stages in the world — The Roxy, The Troubador, The Viper Room, sharing those stages with some of pop music’s best and brightest, from Colbie Caillat to Gavin DeGraw to Katy Perry.

Brett Young opened for Tyrone Wells a few weeks ago. I actually missed his performance because I was stuck waiting in line to get in (even though we were there 30 min early!). Since he was opening for one of my favorite artists, I figured I would like him. After the show, I blindly purchased his albums at the merch table. I am completely satisfied with that decision. Just picture his baby-blue eyes as you listen to his truthful songs. The boy’s got some soul.

Performing this morning !
Last night, the stage at New York’s City Winery hosted three musicians whose names you may not recognize, but whose songs you’ve already heard on shows like Vampire Diaries toGrey’s Anatomy (or just may be hearing more of soon).
Brett Young kicked off the night with a glass of wine in one hand and a guitar in the other. Accompanied by Jay Ollero, Young brought charming country vocals, his heartfelt lyrics and the occasional Bruno Mars cover as he sang about young love, lost love and everything in between. Young kept things short and sweet, ending his set with his newest single, “Kiss by Kiss.”

On the eve of a mid-March blizzard, in the cozy venue called the Soiled Dove Underground, Brett Young opened with a little Joe Cocker, What Would You Do If I Sang Out of Tune, which turned into his original tune, Crying For More. He also blew the captive audience away with Wrapped Around You, Kiss By Kiss, and Define Me.
