The Bashful Youngens are an Americana band out of Champaign, Illinois featuring  Carrie Chandler and Aaron Short. Carrie and Aaron met and became friends in 2010 while in college after growing up in neighboring towns. They quickly learned they shared a similar love of music and immediately began performing at open mics.  They began writing together soon after and released their first full length self titled debut album in February 2016 and their EP “inflorescent” in March of 2017.
