David James Young is creating podcasts, articles, songs, playlists and various bits and bobs
Hi there! Thanks for stopping by.

My name is David James Young . You might know me as DJY,  the guy at all the shows in Sydney and Wollongong.

I am a writer, podcaster and a musician – I've been doing each for years now.

My work as a writer is primarily within music and arts journalism, and I've had bylines in publications like LNWY, Junkee, Music Feeds, Mixdown, Beat Magazine, Red Bull Music, Australian Guitar, The Brag and Hysteria.

My work as a podcaster for the last few years has centred around two podcasts: All My Friends Are in Bar Bands , which I host and produce; and Hottest 100s and 1000s , of which I am one of the four panelists. My work for both of these podcasts has been featured on triple j and in Rolling Stone, and I hosted a workshop on podcasting at the 2015 National Young Writers' Festival .

My work as a musician is through what was once my solo project and is now my band: Nothing Rhymes with David. We've had the pleasure of playing shows with the likes of Jeff Rosenstock, Rolo Tomassi, Into It. Over It. , Iron Chic, Crywank, The Hard Aches and Maxwell Stern. We're currently working on the third Nothing Rhymes with David album, which is set for release in 2019.

This Patreon used to just be for All My Friends Are in Bar Bands , and I'm incredibly grateful for all of the support the podcast has received.

As my attention has been shifted to a cross-section of work, however, I feel like it's time to broaden the Patreon's horizons.

Now, instead of just supporting All My Friends Are in Bar Bands , you're supporting David James Young – that's me!

As one of my patrons, I want to share with you everything that I'm working on: New articles, new podcasts, new songs, everything.

I also want to give back to the people supporting me – each month, no matter what tier, I'll send you a newsletter of stuff I've had published, things I've enjoyed reading and things I'm enjoying listening to.

I'm also open to doing reviews by request, making themed/curated Spotify playlists and even sharing advice with anyone who wants to do what I do that might be just starting out – whether that's music journalism, podcasting or songwriting. I'm not an expert by any stretch of the imagination, but I do have a lot of experience and a few tips I can share should you want it.

Anyway, I really hope you will consider supporting me on Patreon – as a freelancer, my workload can be unpredictable and so too are my finances. I do all of these things completely independently and every cent will support me in my creative endeavours.

Thank you so, so much for your time. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to message me on here or at [email protected].

Peace,
DJY
