Cado Young is Jake Crenshaw and Brian Gottshall, friends from opposite ends of the United States that met in Australia, and found that they have similar music interests. Both are interested in music that is genuine. Music that people can connect with in an authentic manner. Their influences range from As Cities Burn, Thrice and Underoath, to Sigur Ros, From Indian Lakes, and City and Colour.
These songs were written over a 3 to 4 year period by Brian Gottshall and Jake Crenshaw. The EP itself covers a lot of ground emotionally and spiritually, dealing with themes of struggle, adversity, and wanting to create a culture of sober mindedness and realness. It speaks very bluntly about people putting on masks and trying to be people they are not. Many of the lyrics are written from a third person point of view while at other times being auto-biographical. If you like any of the bands mentioned above, then you should hopefully get into our music. We are very excited to share it with you!
