Young Mister is songwriter Steven Fiore, accompanied by a merry band of talented musicians across the southeast U. S. After 6 years wriritng with Universal Music Publishing Group, Fiore is now shedding his skin and stretching into new musical territory as Young Mister with this self-titled debut album.
Taking influence from classic rock bands like Electric Light Orchestra, Young Mister worked with producer Wolfgang Zimmerman (Brave Baby, The High Divers) to create an album that embodies the ethos of Americana while retaining the distinct, soulful sound that Fiore s fans know and love. The album ebbs and flows from big band arrangements, such as the brass-filled The Best Part , to the catchy and psychedelic Anybody Out There , before closing on Pasadena , a song whose lyrics take influence from Fiore s own past as an artist torn between two coasts. The arrangements invoke a deep sense of nostalgia as they are carefully paired with vivid and relatable lyrics that truly resonate with the listener.
