【The Glorious Sons】
The Glorious Sons' second full-length album, Young Beauties & Fools, is all about honesty. More specifically, it's about exploring the adventures (and frequent misadventures) of main songwriter Brett Emmons in the truest way. It's also an album where The Glorious Sons — rounded out by Brett’s older brother Jay Emmons (guitar), Chris Koster (guitar), Adam Paquette (drums) and Chris Huot (bass) — capture all the listlessness and confusion of young adulthood in 10 doses of modern rock.

Glorious Sons’ hardscrabble tales come naturally. A high-spirited rock band with blue collar roots, they truly found themselves when Brett quit school in 2013 to join them as lead singer. Subsequent years of hard touring and hard partying — sometimes in places so sketchy, as Brett puts it, “There was no electricity in the building” — provided fuel for the songs on Young Beauties & Fools.

【The Blue Stones】
Listening to the larger-than-life, but tight and precise blues-rock of The Blue Stones on their debut “Black Holes”, it is astonishing to discover all that sound and fury is created by just two people.

Guitarist/vocalist/lyricist Tarek Jafar and drummer Justin Tessier have known each other since high school, but it wasn’t until attending university together that they decided to start a band.
