In the summer of 1998, friends and former lovers, Paul Pittman and Lucy Brain were halfway thinking about starting a band. That autumn, a mutual friend asked if they would open for a local show she was putting on at Ms T’s Cabaret.
Over the next year they began making a name for themselves and the line up was expanded to include drummer Ron Teardrop, keyboardist Ted Bois and bassist Andre Lagace. It was with this 5-piece incarnation of the group, that Young And Sexy's debut Stand Up For Your Mother was recorded. Mother was released in March 2002 to critical acclaim. AMG described the album as "beautiful and tough as nails."
Their sophomore release Life Through One Speaker was released in the fall of 2003 and earned uniformly great notices in papers and websites across North America even finding a spot on The Globe and Mail's year end "best of" list.
Early 2004 saw the band record a live session with CBC Radio 3. As it happens, this would be the last time this particular lineup would record together, as both Ron Teardrop and Ted Bois departed soon after.
New members were brought on board: Brent McDonald on bass, and Alex Brain on drums. In spring 2004 they headlined a portion of the CBC Radio 3 Canadian Connect the Dots tour. The tour was a great opportunity for the new line up to hone new material for their 3rd album Panic When You Find It.
Recorded in bits and pieces between October 2004 & April 2005 Panic When You Find It is their most rewarding release to date.
