Pegi Young Schedules Northern California Shows

Debut Album to Be Released June 26; Appearance on "Conan O'Brien" Set for July 18

BURBANK, CA--(Marketwire - June 12, 2007) - It will be a busy week for singer-songwriter Pegi Young, as she makes her live solo debut with three shows in Northern California, and releases her first album June 26 on Vapor/Warner Bros. Records. Then next month, on July 18, Pegi Young will also appear on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" on NBC-TV.

Young will be performing on Friday, June 22 at the Henry Miller Library in Big Sur; June 24 at the Attic in Santa Cruz; and June 26 at the Little Fox Theatre in Redwood City. Performing with her will be Anthony Crawford (guitar, vocals); Ben Keith (pedal steel guitar and dobro); and Rick Rosas (electric bass).

"Pegi Young" is the singer's debut album, produced by Elliot Mazer and recorded in Redwood City and Los Angeles, California and Nashville, Tennessee. It features all the musicians in her live band, as well as drummers Karl Himmell and Chad Cromwell, keyboard great Spooner Oldham and Young's husband of almost three decades, Neil Young, on guitar, harmonica and vocals.

Pegi Young has lived an incredible life, all the while working on her music. She wrote half the songs on the album, starting as a teenager in high school, and sees the release as a lifelong ambition. "It was something I always wanted to do but could never make time for," she says. Songs like "Fake," "Love Like Water," "White Line in the Sun" and all the other album tracks are a deeply emotional blend of country soul and rock & roll, adding up to a magnificently played collection of songs that reveal how youth is often prescient, and sometimes it can take a lifetime until that wisdom is fully realized.

With the album's release and these live shows, Pegi Young now realizes one of her own long-held dreams. And though she has sung with her husband's bands live and on various recording projects, these three Northern California shows are the first where it's her own music to be featured. For someone whose devotion and love has helped build a family, a school and a community of children, life is serving up yet another exciting surprise.
