About Ritchie Young

Folk pop vocal tornado

Ritchie Young

Multi-talented lead vocalist of Portland's beloved Loch Lochmond. He's able to switch from high-pitched fragility to alto thunder in the turn of a phrase, yet he knows the power of restraint intuitively, saving vocal tornadoes for emotional apexes buoyed by string swells and moving arrangements

"Ritchie Young can sing delicate and high or mournful and low, and while his dense chamber-pop songs employ clarinet, violin, mandolin, and marimba, they never feel overwrought." - Spin Magazine
