As lead guitarist with STYX James "JY" Young has had twelve studio albums, four top 5 singles, and several world tours. On his own he has released two solo studio projects in-between STYX albums. In order to play his own music live, James "JY" Young assembled a great band. They soon became more than mere support. The James Young Group is a true partnership, a collaborative effort in terms of writing, arranging and sharing the spotlight on record and on stage.

The result is the Raised By Wolves album and tour. The ensemble of Michael Baran, Lou DePasqua, Ken Harck, Hank Horton and James "JY" Young have committed their sound and songs to the new Raised By Wolves disc. This talented, powerful, and versatile band is indeed led by JY, but it's definitely The James Young Group.
