Since their first gig in a back kitchen in 1998 the Sons have released four CDs on their own Curst Mountain label, played far too many pubs, clubs and festivals to remember, recorded two live sessions for Mark Lamarr on BBC Radio 2, and twice been Time Out s critics choice.

Got everybody jumpin a great band. Jonnie Walker BBC Radio 2

I ll tell you what that was absolutely fantastic. If you look out the window and there s a slight breeze
that s God nodding...a phenomenal piece of work. Mark Lamarr BBC RADIO 2

Their biggest appeal is that they manage to stay true to American folk musics rich lineage, while throwing in enough curve balls to piss off the folk puritanicals. AMERICANA UK

Considering that most of the time there are just the three of them on stage, they manage to play the songs with more power & intensity than I have ever seen from a full band MAVERICK

their unique rugged version of American roots music has a delightfully dirt-road quality to it. ROCK n REEL

Full of energy. Bryan Burnett BBC RADIO SCOTLAND
