Dominic Harrison (born 5 August 1998), who performs as Yungblud (stylised in all caps), is an English alternative rock musician from Doncaster.

Yungblud has expressed himself through his music as a "socially conscious artist unafraid of delivering genre-bending protest songs."[4]

His song "I Love You, Will You Marry Me" describes the true story of a man named Jason who proposed to a woman named Clare Middleton through graffiti on Park Hill that ended up being heavily commercialised and profited by apartment owners, but the woman died, and the man is homeless.[5]

His grandfather performed with T. Rex in the 1970s.[6] Yungblud studied theatre in lowercase at Arts Educational Schools, London before beginning his music career. [7] His singles began attracting popularity in 2017,[8] when his style was described as "the spitfire suburban poetry of younger Arctic Monkeys and Jamie T, fused with a healthy touch of ska and hip-hop spirit".[9] Yungblud collaborated with Charlotte Lawrence for the song "Falling Skies", which is featured on the season two soundtrack of 13 Reasons Why.[10] His debut album was released on 6 July 2018.
