Young & Divine Announce Tour Dates and EP Release

Albany based pop/rock trio Young & Divine (RCA Records) will release their self-titled debut EP on March 23rd. Leading up to the release, Young & Divine will hit the road with Secret Secret Dino Club and This Condition playing dates in the southeast. Young & Divine is comprised of singer/songwriter/bass player JP Clark, Jake Mai (guitar / vocals) and Joe Bortscheller (drums). Their first single “Shake That Bubble” impacted radio at the top of the year and continues to grow at Top 40 radio.

Young & Divine independently recorded their self-titled debut release with Kenneth Mount and Zack Odom (Cartel) at Atlanta’s Tree Sound Studios, where the trio perfected their super-charged choruses, powerful guitar lines and ear-grabbing melodies. Clark is the group’s chief songwriter, penning every track on the album, as well as producing a handful of them.

Young & Divine got its start when Clark asked his college pal Bortscheller — to play on the songs he’d been working up by ear (he doesn’t read music). The group took off quickly as a four-piece, but Clark and Bortscheller soon found themselves in the market for a new band member to complete what was now going to be a trio. They found their missing piece, Mai, in a literal digital haystack: MySpace. After relocating from Texas, and only two weeks of rehearsals, the now completed trio of Young & Divine hit the road, touring cross country in a van until they signed with RCA Records in 2009.

Currently playing shows across the country on a slew of radio promotion dates leading up to the release of their album, Young & Divine plan to tour extensively through the spring and summer.
