Neil Young is a Canadian singer songwriter, musician, producer, director and screenwriter. He moved to California in 1966 where he co-founded the band Buffalo Springfield together with Stephen Stills and Richie Furay and later joined Crosby, Stills & Nash in 1969. He released his first album in 1968 and has since forged a successful and acclaimed solo career, spanning over 45 years and 35 studio albums, with a continuous, uncompromising exploration of musical styles. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame twice, first as a solo artist in 1995 and second as a member of Buffalo Springfield in 1997. Young’s music is characterized by his distinctive guitar work, deeply personal lyrics and characteristic alto or high tenor singing voice. Although he accompanies himself on several different instruments, including piano and harmonica, his electric and acoustic guitar playing are the defining characteristics of a varying ragged and melodic sound. Young has directed a number of films using the pseudonym Bernard Shakey, including Journey Through the Past (1973), Rust Never Sleeps (1979), Human Highway (1982), Greendale (2003) and CSNY/Déjà Vu (2008). He has also contributed to the soundtracks of films including Philadelphia (1993) and Dead Man (1995). Young lives on his ranch near La Honda, California. Although he has lived in northern California since the 1970s and sings as frequently about US themes and subjects as he does about his native country, he has retained his Canadian citizenship. On July 14, 2006, Young was awarded the Order of Manitoba and on December 30th 2009, was made an Officer of the Order of Canada.
