*1 Passerines currently appears as a solo acoustic/electric act. Timothy Young started the project in the late Fall of 2011. The first digital release, By The River, attempts to mix aspects of acoustic singer/songwriter music, with electronic music. The result is a collection of songs with dynamic and soothing vocals, over mellow, yet intricate guitar and synth arrangements. Other releases include the digital single Yellow Begonias.
