Children of the Son
Rathdrum, County Wicklow
Children of the Son is a great Irish family story of three young brothers Jack, Art and Max Matthews along with drummer Rob Kennedy.
They play Alternative, Pop Rock.
They launch their debut single on June 24th!
Having just returned from LA, recording 5 tracks with Record Producer Warren Huart (Aerosmith, The Fray, James Blunt) they pre-released it on Hotpress to a great reaction.
'I think its going to be phenomenal. My guess is a major will pick it up. I can almost guarantee it. And I got to work with one of the best young bands in the World'.
Children Of The Son are also on the front cover of the Hotpress 2014 Yearbook with an amazing article 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.
The future starts here. Bring it on....'
