Young graduated from the University of California, Los Angeles with a Bachelor of Fine Arts and began her career by posting videos of herself playing music in 2009. In 2014, Young released an EP titled Acoustics EP and further expanded her discography with the release of a split EP with Natalie Evans in 2015. In June 2017, Young released a second EP entitled Acoustics EP 2.
Young also creates unique illustration and art pieces, including work on some of her own guitars. One of her paintings serves as the cover for her band's album Technicolor, released in June 2020.
As of 2019, Young plays two Ibanez Talman Prestige guitars with Seymour Duncan Five-Two single-coil pickups and custom sparkle finishes, and a 7-string, fanned-fret Strandberg that she has painted.
Young plays through Vox AC amps. Her touring amp is an AC30.
During NAMM 2020, Ibanez announced her signature model, the YY10, a Strat-style Talman.
