Biography

German born Benny Young started playing guitar at the age of 14. After three years of self-taught practising he met legendary Marcus Deml who then was his teacher for the next two years. By the age of 21 Benny applied to Popakadmie Mannheim and Popkurs Hamburg both of which gave him a huge lift in playing with bands, writing songs and producing music. His first bigger gig as a sideman in 2009 was Eisblume who had big viral success in the early stages of social media and a top 3 hit in Germany. Followed by playing for the winner of German Idol in 2010.
Somehow Benny's passion for writing and producing led to forming a female fronted rockband called "Crutch". They we're opening shows for Slash, Papa Roach, Germany's Revolverheld and Wirtz and gained a little momentum. Crutch recorded their debut album in 2014 but due to different perspectives the members quit the band and the album was never released. In the same year Benny received the call for his yet biggest gig with Helene Fischer. She is Germany's most successful and hottest artist at the time selling out whole tours within a few days through arenas and stadiums.
Benny Young proudly plays Ibanez Guitars, Kemper Amps and wears Vision Ears.
