Jaymes Young's background
Born Jaymes McFarland in Seattle, Young developed an interest in music at a young age after his parents introduced him to a diverse range of musical styles and genres. At age 14, he started playing his mother's classical guitar and began penning his own songs.
Inspired by artists such as Coldplay, Maroon 5, Iron & Wine, Radiohead and Death Cab for Cutie, Young moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in music and signed to the record label Atlantic Records in 2013. He toured with indie pop trio London Grammar and released his debut EP, entitled Dark Star, later that year. The EP garnered positive reviews from influential music bloggers far and wide.
Young released his second EP, entitled Habits of My Heart, in 2014. That same year, he also opened for Vance Joy on his Dream Your Life Away Tour. Following the success of Habits of My Heart, Young released his debut studio album Feel Something in 2017. The album was largely self-produced and home-recorded by Young over a period of several years.
