Children of the Son
Rathdrum, County Wicklow
Children of the Son are made of brothers Jack, Art and Max Matthews and drummer Jules Chambers.
They play their own signature style of Modern Alternative Pop Rock.
The band have been going from strength to strength over the past few months and 2014 is gearing up to be an explosive year for them.
Having just returned from Los Angeles recording a new EP with Record Producer Warren Huart ( Aerosmith, The Fray, James Blunt ) the band are prepared to take the world by storm.
They release the first single off this new record in early January 2014.
With avid fans in Hotpress - 'Children Of The Son are on the verge of a major breakthrough, '
They are on the front cover of the Hotpress 2014 Yearbook with the title: INTRODUCING IRELAND'S TEENAGE BRIGADE!
There is also an amazing article inside by Niall Stokes titled 'The FUTURE STARTS HERE'

'Those sessions have delivered a collection of five recordings that is studded with aces. As I write, a team is being assembled to mount the campaign to take the band to the next level. They have the songs. They have the attitude. They have the musical ability.And in front man Jack, they have one of the most extraordinary vocalists in Jack. Indeed, it is hard to think of any Irish man or woman who has come near to him, in terms of the range and expressiveness of his voice as an instrument.
I firmly believe they are about to take another huge leap forward. Truly, there is no limit to their potential.
That there is such awe-inspiring young talent here in Ireland is confirmation of what we have argued, and agitated, for over the years in Hotpress. Support great new artists as they edge into the harsh light of day and they will repay that backing a hundred-fold. That is the way it works: same, you might observe sagely, as it ever was.
The future starts here. Bring it on....'
Plus in The Hotpress Annual 2014 there is a double page spread on 'Children Of The Son' titled 'Newcomers Of The Year!'
