Astrid Young (born 16 August 1962) is a Canadian singer/songwriter. She is the daughter of Scott Young and Astrid Mead. After her half-brother and fellow musician Neil Young bought Astrid her first amp in the 1970s, she began to explore her own musical talents. After a brief run with 80's Glam metal group Sacred Child, she went on to record backup vocals on several albums through most of the 80's and 90's.
Her vocals appeared on Neil Young's Unplugged, Road Rock Vol. 1 and the grammy nominated Harvest Moon albums. In 2002, the rock band iST released a CD entitled Pokalolo Paniolo, where she performed lead vocals and played the bass guitar. Astrid has released two solo albums so far, Brainflower in 1995, and Matinee in 2002. Astrid has also co-written music with many fellow musicians, including Nancy Wilson and the late West Arkeen.
