Born in Yorkshire, England, Harrison first picked up a guitar at age two, began writing his own songs at age 10, and moved to London to kick-start his music career when he was 16. After sharpening his musical vision by mining inspiration from firebrand artists like The Clash and N.W.A, he independently released his debut single “King Charles” in spring 2017 on his managers indie label LOCOMOTION RECORDINGS and landed a deal with Geffen Records by that summer’s end.
Released in 2018, his self-titled debut EP features now-iconic tracks like “I Love You, Will You Marry Me”—a real-life tale of an ill-fated romance at a public housing project in South Yorkshire. With 21st Century Liability arriving in July 2018, YUNGBLUD soon embarked on sold-out headline tours of the U.S. and Europe, in addition to bringing his kinetic live show to leading festivals like Lollapalooza, Reading and Leeds, Austin City Limits, NXNE, Rock Am Ring, the last-ever Vans Warped Tour, and Pukkelpop.
In October 2019, YUNGBLUD released six track EP the underrated youth, which debuted at number 6 on the UK album chart. The EP includes huge track ‘original me’ featuring Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons, plus ‘hope for the underrated youth’ and ‘parents’.
The 22-year-old has become known for his high energy and passionate shows that leave crowds wanting more; in 2019 he sold out his UK, US and European headline tours! In Spring 2020, YUNGBLUD will perform across Asia, before hitting the stage at Coachella and heading out on his North American ‘Underrated Youth Tour’, prior to returning to the UK for a run of shows including a sold out Kentish Town residency.
