Singer-songwriter Pegi Young is once again hitting the road with her acclaimed recording and touring band, The Survivors: legendary keyboard player Spooner Oldham , bassist Rick Rosas , guitarist Kelvin Holly , and drummer Phil Jones . Pegi Young & The Survivors will appear on Late Show with David Letterman on January 30th before they head out on a string of tour dates, including four shows in support of 10,000 Maniacs. The itinerary kicks off February 1 at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ, and wraps February 10th at the Birchmere in Alexandria, VA.

Young will be touring in support of her third album, Bracing For Impact (Vapor Records). The 11-song album is a powerful showcase for Pegi's elegantly spare and emotionally resonant vocals, and a lyrical sensibility marked by heartfelt expression and unflinching honesty. "I'm just trying to tell some stories and make music that I can get behind," she says, and that plainly stated truth threads its way through every song.

Bracing For Impact follows up 2010's Foul Deeds, which Pegi co-produced with veteran multi-instrumentalist Ben Keith . Her debut album, 2007's self-titled Pegi Young , was described by Allmusic.com as "an intimate, hopeful and melancholy look at life and love from a songwriter who has been there."

Pegi Young first became known via her longtime role as backup singer-onstage and on record-for her husband Neil Young . Pegi and Neil founded the non-profit Bridge School in 1986, serving children with severe speech and physical impairments. The Youngs are also the driving force behind the annual all-star Bridge School Benefit concerts.
