The Bygones

The Bygones are an indie folk duo consisting of Allison Young and Joshua Lee Turner. Established performers and social media personalities in their own right (nearly 800K combined YouTube subscribers), their sound wraps together flavors spanning the 20th century, from traditional jazz to 70’s singer-songwriter, classic country to bossa nova. Josh’s classical guitar background and ear for vocal harmony provide the underpinning for Allison’s powerful songwriting and nostalgic voice, in duo arrangements which are intricate yet accessible, classic yet fresh. Josh and Allison first worked together in 2018, recording a cover of Willie Nelson’s “Crazy” for YouTube which now has over 4 million views. They soon realized that their musical styles were a natural fit for one another, and in 2022 they recorded their first EP together, May 9-12, which they toured to sold out audiences across the UK later that year. Josh and Allison will be making their US debut as The Bygones in 2023, and are working on new original music.
