Fear of the unknown may be the greatest fear of all –  but listening to Joseph L Young’s album "Into the Unknown" makes those first few steps into uncharted territory seem a lot less daunting. Thanks to Young’s masterful compositions, spotless arrangements and usual saxophone and flute brilliance, the land beyond the horizon is, to quote one of the titles, within reach. It is a genuine treasure chest for any New Age music fan. It is only July, but I can already say that Into the Unknown will be on many Best of 2022-lists. ... I’m once again amazed by Joseph Young’s vibrant and dynamic storytelling, which makes this musical odyssey not only deeply compelling – but also highly inspirational. It is music, but its “literary” qualities are right there on the surface. Like a well-written novel, perhaps in the fantasy or sci-fi genres, it takes hold of the listener from the very beginning.” - BT Fasmer

A divergent path is something that multi-instrumentalist Joseph L Young knows well. Sometimes known as a talented lead sax player, this composer has found a new kind of magic and uses it to enter Into the Unknown as his new album is called. The recording is almost an hour long of New Age and ambient flute music on eleven tracks. Using deftly created synth mixes, Young unlocks eleven doors that invite the listener on a spectacular aural journey. … Based on this finely crafted music, I’d follow him Into the Unknown. Highly listenable.” - R J Lannan

With his sixth full-length album, composer and multi-instrumentalist Joseph L Young takes us on a genre-defying multi-cultural musical journey Into "the Unknown". It's been four years since his award-winning "Every Moment", but it was definitely worth the wait! In addition to flutes, sax and keyboards, Joseph plays duduk, Vietnamese mouth harp and udu. Each piece on the album contains an element of mystery, myth, legend and/or fantasy, so there is a lot of variety in the music and instrumentation. Sometimes dark and mysterious and sometimes more buoyant and soaring, this is definitely one of the best albums of 2022! "Into the Unknown" is a journey worth taking many times, as each time will reveal something new! Don't miss this one!!!” - Kathy Parsons
