Saturday night in Hollywood catching Canadian rock and roll band, The Glorious Sons..This is what we live for! When anyone tells you that rock and roll is dead they don’t know fuck-all!! and they don’t know of The Glorious Sons… Their live performance  comes with quite a wallup…

Frontman, Brett Emmons casts himself as the prototypical nomadic stranger who appears to be  just passing through.  He saunters around  the stage with a measured gait looking like he just rolled out of bed in the mid-day wearing his pajamas.  Emmons inspires to savor the mystic gardens of his working class Canadian roots, reflecting on a weary world full of woe. The Glorious Sons are from the blue collar city of Kingston, Ontario.. Canada … known for being a French trading post back in the  17th century and the home of  rock band,  The Tragically Hip. Perhaps their music would be referred to as Americana if they were American… thankfully they aren’t not one of those bands! Emmons doesn’t seek out company — he intends to take his troubled secrets with him and share them with his audience; which by  now  are  his new found friends. The  lyrics are honest and insightful  much like Jackson Browne minus the CA. scene metaphors but overall they hit home. The songs from, “Young Beauties And Fools” (released back in Oct. of 2017) wildly scatters disparate notions and then simultaneously seeks meaning in the array of compelling sing along “frat rock” choruses. Ambling  around like a Southern  “Blues-man”  with a pebble in his shoe and a yearning to get high. Emmons describes a society plagued with rife. Their  #1 Rock radio track, “Sawed Off Shotgun” is about a surprise showdown where we come face to face with our opponents and ponder the short coming of human nature. Ultimately, scanning the skies for hints of geopolitical righteousness. Sometimes, Emmons sounds spooked by life. A wandering soul  not trying to be a sage or a skeptic or a cultural bellwether. He’s just a seeker on the road, sharing a bit of the clarity that comes to those not searching for that big answer. 2019 shows the release of  new full album, “An Unplugged Evening With the Glorious Sons.(Live At Longboat Hall” which  shows a whole different side to the band….
