American Young is kicking off summer with an eleven-date European tour.Although this is the duo’s fifth time overseas and second European tour in 2017, this will be the first time they are headlining the entire leg of the tour, making stops in Switzerland, United Kingdom, Netherlands, and Norway. In promotion of their recently released debut album, AY, the tour will commence on June 24th in Switzerland.
“We are very excited to experience the European audiences again, we connect with them in such a special way, it’s hard to describe,” comments Jon Stone, “The energy, the enthusiasm—It’s so much fun to be able to bring our passion to Europe, and the fans be so welcoming.”
Comprised of songwriter/musician, Kristy Osmunson, and songwriter/producer, Jon Stone, American Young released their debut album in late 2016. Penning 11 of the 12 tracks, showcasing Osmunson and Stone’s natural songwriting abilities, the record features their first single, “Love is War,” along with tracks such as “God Sends a Train,” which speaks of the real-life devastation Osmunson endured when her mother was hit by a train but lived and eventually walked again, “Be Here,” which pleads for a moment of peace without the distractions of today’s world, and “Something to You,” which Osmunson fought back tears to record in the studio.
