Breakout Texas indie-roots band Sons of Fathers – whose incredible natural harmonies have stunned fans – will make their LA debut January 11 at Hotel Café. The band has seen quite a rise from their formation in San Marcos, TX earlier this year to their live radio debut on WXPN and acclaim from national publications like the Wall Street Journal and USA Today.
Legendary instrumentalist Lloyd Maines, who co-produced the self-titled debut album, told the Austin American-Statesman, "(Songwriters David Beck and Paul Cauthen) definitely have their own sound. The result is the Everly Brothers meets Neil Young and Merle Haggard and the Clash."
Here's video of Sons of Fathers playing their eponymous track.

Sons of Fathers have earned universal acclaim:
"All of the album's songs have the uneasy stillness of an echoing rifle shot… 'Sons of Fathers' features the Austin, Texas, duo singing and playing in a tight, heartfelt vocal style reminiscent of Crosby, Stills & Nash."
– Wall Street Journal
"David Beck and Paul Cauthen harmonize like David Crosby and Graham Nash, only with a touch of Texas twang."
"Their rich vocal harmonies are nothing short of moving."
"Full of their signature melodies and the feel of Texas on the road."
"Sounds like [the] Avett Brothers."
- AOL Music
"Their harmony-rich, boot-scooty tunes feel so well-worn."
- Austin Chronicle
"Gloriously rich harmonies."
– Austin American-Statesman
"Not to be missed."
"Don’t grab a substitute when you can have the real thing… 'Sons of Fathers' does Americana proud."
– American Songwriter
"Such poise and passion."
"Easily the best of its genre in years."
- Gatehouse Media
