Daniel A. Young

Central Indiana entertainer Daniel A. Young is a singer and musical performer specializing in “American Songbook” standards, jazz tunes and romantic ballads.

On January 15, 2007, Dreamwalker Media released “A Place to Dream” / Daniel A. Young Sings Jazz Standards. The recording features pianist/arranger Ken Fary, and several of the Indianapolis area’s finest jazz musicians, including Jack Helsley on bass, Sam Withrow on drums, tenor sax solos by Michael Stricklin (three tracks), and trumpet or flugel horn by Jeff Conrad (three tracks).

Over three decades, Daniel (D.A.) Young was a part-time studio session singer and small-club performer around Central Indiana, appearing often as a solo act, or with his own group, D.A. & the Convictions. A prolific songwriter, he frequented open stages around the city to try out material and find potential fans. In the 1990’s, he produced an art- rock/pop demo compilation called, “My Favorite Stranger,” released independently in October 1998. A second song collection, “Soul to the Wheel” was completed in 2005 (available on-line at CD-Baby.com)

After a hiatus to finish his college degree, Daniel returned to musical activities, performing standards and ballads with a new line-up of D.A. & the Convictions in numerous local appearances, including the 2002 Indy 500 Champagne Ball, The Main Street Stage at the Indiana State Fair, three cocktail events in large ballrooms for The Perfect Wedding Guide, and three grand opening parties for Eddie Merlot's restaurant in Indianapolis, as well as other private events.
