Best known as the character Lucky Spencer on the long-running afternoon soap opera General Hospital, Jacob Young is also a pop singer. Music turned out to be Young's first love, as he sang in both school choirs and musicals (in his hometown of Roy, WA). As a teenager, Young relocated to San Diego, and began auditioning for TV shows, landing a role on the daytime drama The Bold and the Beautiful at the age of 17 (he was nominated for a Daytime Emmy for his work on the show). Despite his never-ending work schedule, Young found the time to write and demo songs. Right before he got his General Hospital gig, Young signed a record deal with Artemis Records (headed by Danny Goldberg). Released in September of 2001, Young's self-titled debut utilized outside writers such as Eric Lowen and Dan Navarro (Pat Benatar's "We Belong"), Billy Steinberg (Madonna's "Like a Virgin"), and Mark Hudson (Aerosmith). The album was produced by Stephen Lironi, whose credits have included Baha Men, Black Grape, and Hanson, among others. ~ Greg Prato, RoviPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
