American Young is spreading its wings, transitioning from songwriting to performing as a duo.

The annual KMPS Showcase featuring American Young comes to the Spring Fair in Puyallup at 7:30 p.m. Friday.

The concert on the Showplace Stage is free to fair guests with gate admission.

Jon Stone and Kristy Osmunson are songsmiths, producers and entertainers. Both exude an unparalleled passion for music and more importantly, its meaning. They are seasoned veterans on how music can inherently affect emotion, and even culture. The collaborative fresh new duo already claim songwriting credits for hit-makers Kenny Chesney, Rascal Flatts, Blake Shelton, Lee Brice and more.

"American Young represents a sound with no boundaries," Stone said. "We are squarely focused on delivering our own brand of music and hope that folks will find our songs to be everything from haunting to dramatic and intense to fresh."

American Young's genre-bending music is set to launch its debut single this year.
