A captivating blend of atmospheric indie-rock and upbeat post-punk, Stellar Young find the root of their work inspired by the human condition. The Albany, New York based group features John Glenn (vox/keys), Erik Flora (guitar/vox), Kyle Hatch (guitar), Dave Parker (bass), and Tim Brosnan (drums). Together the members work to create the most accurate portrayal of key moments in life that everyone understands, but often can’t explain.

Glenn and Flora were childhood friends that played music together in high school and Hatch was drafted in their college years. They captured the attention of Parker, who joined the group on bass and has produced all of their releases to date. Brosnan joined the group on drums in early 2016.

While out of college, working day jobs and spending their evenings writing music, they released their debut album, Everything At Once, in 2013, which included singles “Playing With Guns” and “We Own Nothing.”

In late 2014, the band released their sophomore album, Vessels, which included singles “Nomad” and “Hitting Reset.”

Stellar Young spent much of the 2015-2016 year writing and conceptualizing a series of existential EPs. The first, The Spark Caught, was released in September 2016 and followed by a U.S. tour.


"As a music director of an alternative music station, I wish more bands were doing what Stellar Young is doing. Their live show is always energetic, they are one of those bands that you can tell when they're on stage that it's just five great friends doing what they love most, and they make sure the crowd gets swept away in that energy as well. They provide memorable hooks, a tight rhythm section that will get you grooving along, great riffs, everything a band needs to captivate a live audience they've got it." -Kim Neaton, WEQX 102.7 FM

"If this is the direction indie rock is going, I need to be along for the ride. Stellar Young packs the house with melodic yet intricate sounds and swarms of enthusiastic and enlightened fans." -Pamela Condron, MTK

"Stellar Young is a group of absolutle gentlemen with a unique sound and an incredible stage presence." -Nick DeLouise, Pinelands Music Festival

"stunning tapestry of styles, moods and influences that will hold you hostage from the moment you hit play” -Shane Hunt, Ampkicker

“When I saw Stellar Young for the first time I was really drawn in to their sound and energy on stage. I loved the way they were able to captivate an audience and put on a show for everyone to enjoy.” -Jen Appel, Catalyst Publicity

"though their palette is brimming with gracious tones, they won’t flaunt it at you as a fan, made of peacock feathers…" -Rasto, Alternator
