In 1997, she released her debut album Meet Miss Young and Her All Boy Band. In the early 2000s, she began working with Tony Visconti on Breasticles. Issued in 2003, Breasticles featured a duet with David Bowie, "Saviour".[1] On 2004's X, the opening track "No Other God" was a duet with Brian Molko of Placebo.

Besides her own work, Young has also been featured on other artists' records. She appeared on David Bowie's Heathen in 2002, provided the operatic vocals in Morrissey's single "That's How People Grow Up" in 2008, sang vocals on an alternate version of "New Kid" by Monokino in 2009,[2] and collaborated with GUIDES to perform a cover of "Leave Me Alone" by New Order in 2015.

HerMajesty
HerMajesty
Imagine Peter Gabriel fronting New Order and The Cure and you might be able to approximate the thematic preoccupations, brooding intensity, grandeur, and elegiac live show and sound of herMajesty, a New York City indie glam art project led by JP, (vocals, acoustic guitar, programming) and rounded out by David Leatherwood (guitars, backup vocals), Joan Chew, (Bass, backup vocals), Konrad Meissner (drums) and Josh Shusterman (drums).

herMajesty’s music and live shows combine well crafted songs that take interesting twists and turns with layers of textured sound, and lyrics with a keen eye for the intricacies of personal relationships and their corollaries in global events. Theirs is a tradition of theatrical grand gesture that mixes the intimate with a dramatic presentation. JP has garnered rave reviews for his ability to convey the complex emotions underneath herMajesty’s songs in live shows throughout the Northeast over the last two years. In 2016, he was the subject of a semi-nude photo series by Alice O’Malley, an archivist of L.E.S. counterculture, that conveyed the impact of trauma and introduced caring to the conversation between subject and witness< The photo series was a companion piece to herMajesty’s E.P. “My Body Your Mind”.

herMajesty will release their edgy new single, “I Saw the Dog”, a dystopian take on romance and politics in an age of alternative facts. To write the lyrics, JP used a cut-up approach to communicate the common thread between authoritarian relationships and the exploitative nature of political systems that champion one-line sound bites in the age of the internet. Adding sonic fury to the tense subject matter is Henry Hey on keyboards (David Bowie, Forq, etc.) and Chris McQueen on lead guitar (David Bowie, Snarky Puppy). “I Saw the Dog” was produced by Grammy Award winner Nic Hard. It is catchy, dynamic, foreboding, and dramatic. “I Saw the Dog” is slated for release through digital outlets in May 2017 and on vinyl in June 2017 through Midday Records, a boutique independent label based in Providence, Rhode Island.
