AirPlay Direct is pleased to announce the release of singer / songwriter / artist John Otto Young’s debut solo album “Sunset Tour” to radio stations around the world via AirPlay Direct.

“This album delivers exactly what it promises, a beautiful ‘Sunset Tour’ that takes you on a cool, thoughtful and pleasant ride through your own mind; as narrated by John and his music," says Robert Weingartz, Chairman - AirPlay Direct. "John has the unique ability to write songs in a variety of styles that just seem to flow together with depth and ease. This is music ‘well-done’, that everyone can relate to no matter where you come from, or what your life experiences have been. A highly recommended listen if you just want to chill, or dance in the sun… by yourself, or with that special someone.”

John Otto Young is a Connecticut keyboardist, musician, and songwriter who has been playing and recording in a number of projects over the last 6 decades. These include the Center Street Band as well as Howard Eldridge and the Soul Potatoes. He has also co-produced 3 albums, including 2 earlier releases by the Center Street Band.

"Music has always been what’s kept me sane through good times and bad. I’ve been primarily a keyboardist for many decades and while I’ve written songs for other projects in the past, 'Sunset Tour' is my first opportunity to produce an album of my own material," said John Otto Young, Independent Artist. "I was very fortunate to have a talented and patient co-producer in Paul Opalach and I am also extremely grateful to the many fine musicians and featured artists that took the time to contribute.  I’m very proud of this album, and while I originally thought of this project as more of a finale, I’m starting to think that this may just be the beginning of something."

Young goes on to say, "I want to thank Lynda and Robert Weingartz for all their time and effort. They have been incredibly supportive and encouraging, not to mention fun to work with. AirPlay Direct is truly a great resource for independent artists like myself."
