Young Valley / Live Music

Ideas had grown cold about forming a "back-up country" band for frontman, Zach Lovett. "Z" had become a household name in the Mississippi singer-songwriter conversations and was wanting to explore some new options and considered the idea of having a band to accompany his songs. With the frazzling out of their ensemble based Mississippi Delta folk-grass band, Dandy & the Lions, - Zach, Spencer Thomas, and Carson Braymer were caught in a similar situation. After finding their way back to Jackson, the 3 piece finally rounded out their sound with the homecoming of guitar player and Zach's brother, Dylan - who was living in Texas. With him, came newest addition Chris Hassler after Braymer's departure. What started out as playing Zach originals or his collaborations with Spencer, fused into a swapping and sharing of songs and creativity that, combined with their influences and sense of home, and their natural alt-country sound (with a lot of weird nights, thoughtful minds, and Budweiser) - Young Valley was formed. 

Since then, they try and stay on the road or spend time in the studio and they have had some good times with some real good people - having shared the stage with Lucero, The Weeks, The Mulligan Brothers, Water Liars, Alanna Royale, Futurebirds, Phosphorescent, and Adam Faucett.
