PRLog - Oct. 4, 2012 - NEW YORK -- The Young Presidents is a rock band from New York that blends classic rock 'n' roll with a dash of '90s alternative. Core members Jake Hertzog (vocals and guitar) and Mitchell Kaneff (bass), united by their passion for rock music, are creating an electrifying vision of music by collaborating with some of the world's most talented entertainers. The band is inspired by everything from Cream to Train, from The Jimi Hendrix Experience to Nirvana, and those are just a few of the influences you'll hear on the band's debut album Freedom of Speech, released in 2011. This band uses a back-to-basics approach blended with a modern sound that returns to the great power trio format of rock: guitar, bass, and drums.
