Children Of The Son’s upward career trajectory continues with the Wicklow rockers set to pre-release their stunning debut single ‘Do You Really Want Me’ this week on Wednesday May 7th.
Lead Singer, Jack Matthews, is a member of the Gaiety School – Youth Theatre Company. We wish him all the best with his amazing new single!
Children Of The Son are three teenage brothers Max, Art & Jack Matthews (YTC) from Wicklow and drummer Rob Kennedy.
The single, available for official download on June 24th L.A. last year for their first E.P. and is set to catapult the quartet into musical stardom. The sessions, which have sparked widespread label interest, were produced by Warren Huart, who has also worked extensively with Aerosmith and The Fray, among other leading rock ‘n’ roll luminaries. Along with Warren, Children Of The Son also have the backing of iconic photographer Robert knight who has also been championing the band over in the U.S.
“Children of the Son have the potential to be huge,” Hot Press editor Niall Stokes said. “They have everything that a rock ‘n’ roll band needs to achieve lift-off – great songs, outstanding musical ability, a lead singer in Jack Matthews who has an extraordinary voice, a great image and an amazing work ethic – so I’m not at all surprised that record companies are beginning to put a shape on their offers.”
As well as pre-releasing their debut single this Wednesday, Children Of The Son will also play an intimate gig for a select number of Hot Press readers in Arnotts Henry St. on May 7th, after being crowned worthy winners of ‘Get The Look’.
Earlier this Spring, Hot Press in conjunction with Arnotts, offered one band the chance to ‘Get The Look’, – and have it immortalised in a special Hot Press photo shoot along with getting the opportunity to play at a very special gig in Arnotts. Joining them for the occasion on Wednesday, are one of Dublin’s hottest bands Gangs, who are renowned for their incendiary live shows and will doubtlessly bring something special to the unique gig setting.
After launching their single for pre-release on Wednesday, Children Of The Son will begin to prepare for a life changing showcase in London which takes place in front of international labels and management at the end of May. Clearly on the cusp of major success, 2014 is set to be an extraordinary year for this talented Wicklow band!
