the cliché ‘The Apple Doesn't Fall Far From the Tree’
one can certainly hear that the bloodline from Jubal's father,
Steve Young, to Jubal has not strayed.
On his third album Jubal Lee has captured Love - Loss - Freedom
- Pain and Fantasy! With a Folk/Troubadour blend "The Last
Free Place in America" will surely keep you smiling, lamenting
and day dreaming.”

Star Jukebox, KPFT - Houston
Lee Young makes genuine top class Americana country-rock; melodic,
story-telling and attention-seeking. It reminds me of a young
Steve Earle and I'm convinced that this is just the beginning
of a smashing career....."

"Open Letter to Steve Young: Hey man,
your boy rocks!"

folding folk and rock into gritty tunes that embody the spirit of
vintage '70s country soul."

"It is extremely difficult to classify
Jubal Lee Young's music on his new album. There are some strong
singer/songwriter-influences meeting rootsy country-rock with a
little bit of blues and Irish folk. But, hey, you can call it what
you want - It's a bloody great album!"
Braun, Home Of Rock
Lee Young has created a classic, timeless album, with the emphasis
on traditional singer-songwriter rock, with a little bit of plain
ol' country music thrown in, a small nod to some Texas-blues, and
a great love for classic, hook-laden pop music. And for once, the
sound really matches the songs in quality - Brilliant!"
Ola Karlsson, Smålandsposten
