Formed in 2014, The Bashful Youngens are an Americana band out of Champaign, Illinois featuring Carrie Chandler and Aaron Short.
Carrie and Aaron grew up 15 minutes apart, in Pontiac, IL and Forrest, IL, respectively. But they didn't meet until a few years later, in college, at a party where they happened to spontaneously perform a Ryan Adams song together. Fast forward to 2016 where they recorded and released their self titled debut album and to 2017 where they recorded and released their EP, "Inflorescent." After adding a few more band members along the way (Brian Hildebrand, Mitchell Killough, Stephen Johnson and Matt Chupp) The Bashful Youngens have shared the stage with artists like Paul Thorn, Jana Kramer, Lydia Loveless and Parker Millsap.
