The Young Fables are the promising country duo comprised of three-time American Idol vet Laurel Wright and accomplished Gretsch endorsed guitarist and vocalist Wesley Lunsford. This talented duo hail from Maryville, TN and have appeared with such notable acts as Lauren Alaina, Josh Turner, Sara Evans, Chris Janson, Randy Houser, The Band Perry, Rascal Flatts and Chris Lane. Plus, we just featured them on our most recent She Rocks Spotlight Series!
The dynamic partnership recently launched a Kickstarter asking family, friends, and fans to help fund their newest album PAGES. The album has been mixed, mastered & ready to be released, but due to tragic circumstances the project came to a sudden halt. Laurel lost both her younger sister and her father in 2018. She was able to express her painful loss through music, and thus began the creation of this album. The Young Fables are asking for financial assistance with just thirty days to raise the $25,000 needed in order to release PAGES to the world.

In 2020, TYF wrapped recording on their third full length album titled PAGES with the GRAMMY Award-winning producer Mitch Dane (Jars of Clay, Brandon Heath & Caedmon’s Call). The album will arrive tandem with the duo’s feature documentary The Fable of a Song, chronicling a remarkable series of events that rocked TYF in 2018. The record will include eleven original works helping to establish The Young Fables’ sonic home in the Country/Americana community as a modern proclaimer and preservationist of classic country’s storytelling roots.
