Former MEGADETH Guitarist Resurfaces In Flamenco-Inspired Band

Former MEGADETH guitarist Jeff Young recently collaborated with Brazilian artist Badi Assad (sister of the famed Assad Brothers) on a full-length CD entitled "Nowhere", now available via Badi's own WaterSongs Music label.

Young, who had previously contributed to Assad's 1998 release, "Chameleon", reportedly draws from a more diverse list of influences for his latest venture, which "includes masterful artists from all over the world playing solely natural acoustic instruments," according to a press release. "The classical and flamenco guitar stylings of Badi & Jeff along with Badi's brilliant vocal work are said to have brought revitalizing change to the world of Brazilian music."

The complete track listing for "Nowhere" is as follows:

01. Calling Jupiter
02. Infin8
03. Spirit Dog
04. Taranta Por Drea
05. Unraveling
06. Angelina
07. Entrelace
08. Solais
09. O Que E Eterno
10. Liquid Voices
11. Nao Adianta
12. Cidade Do Sol
13. The Being Between

"Nowhere" was entirely self-financed and features guest appearances by a diverse cast of internationally renowned musicians, including bassist Tony Franklin (JIMMY PAGE, THE FIRM, BLUE MURDER) and drummer Matt Chamberlain (TORI AMOS, FIONA APPLE, DAVID BOWIE). The CD was mixed at WireWorld production studio just outside of Nashville by Michael Wagener, who had previously worked with JANET JACKSON, OZZY OSBOURNE, SKID ROW, QUEEN, and EXTREME, among others.
