The Second Sons – Announce Debut EP ‘Before & After’

“The Rolling Stones Without Wrinkles”

“The second coming of Rock & Roll.” – Chris Kimsey

The independent release of The Second Sons’ debut E.P Before & After featuring the late and legendary saxophonist Bobby Keys (Rolling Stones, Buddy Holly, Joe Cocker) on the leading single “Best Of Me” will be available October 19th.  Brothers Nick and Chris Harding teamed up with producer Drew Sherrod in Los Angeles, CA to record their debut.  Whilst in Hollywood, the brothers met with guitar legend Billy F. Gibbons who said about their music “This is the real deal since the real deal.”  The six song E.P /Mini Album has a well rounded feel for the different influences and genres the band employs.  From upbeat Rock & Roll to country bends, soulful guitar licks, bluesy bottleneck slide, twangy folky choruses and piano driven ballads, Before & After is refreshing and keeps delivering, play after play. The band plays with varied traditional blues and country open tunings which keeps their Rock & Roll sound authentic.

“Honest to goodness Rock & Roll is relatively rare these days, but when it comes to The Second Sons it’s extremely well done.” – Mark Blackwell (Co-Founder Nylon Magazine, former Senior Editor Spin and Raygun Magazine) A modern take on a classic sound, London based, The Second Sons draw their influence from one of the greatest eras in Rock & Roll, Blues, Soul, R&B and Country. Spyder Harrison, SiriusXM Hits 1 DJ, compared the sounds of Before & After to the likes of the Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, Lenny Kravitz, Jett and the Faces. “I truly love the music, the new classic.” says Freddy Camalier (Director of award winning documentary Muscle Shoals). Their collaboration with Rock & Roll saxophone legend Bobby Keys, who called it “Great Rock & Roll.” complements their Rock & Roll authenticity and the band’s genuine sound. Platinum selling producer Chris Kimsey (Rolling Stones, Peter Tosh, Peter Frampton) calls the band “The second coming of Rock & Roll.” Jed Leiber, world renowned pianist/songwriter, bandleader to Jeff Beck and owner of Nightbird Studios, called Nick and Chris “This generation’s songwriting heroes.” Producer Danny Saber (Rolling Stones, INXS, Black Sabbath) says Before & After  “Has the spirit of the Rolling Stones’s Exile On Main St.  Old school all the way.

The Second Sons are planning dates to support the release of Before & After throughout the U.K over the fall/winter of 2015. The single “Best Of Me” will be featured on the BBC’s radio program BBC Introducing.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
