A no-frills, everyman Canadian rock unit in the vein of the Tragically Hip, the Headstones, the Arkells, and the Trews, Kingston, Ontario’s the Glorious Sons formed in 2011 around the talents of Jay Emmons, Andrew Young, Adam Paquette, Chris Huot, and Brett Emmons. Specializing in a winning blend of rootsy alt-pop and Canadian blue-collar trad rock, the band issued a debut EP (Shapeless Art) in 2013 — the EP garnered positive reviews, as did their energetic live shows. The following year saw the band head into the studio with the Trews’ John-Angus MacDonald and record their debut long-player. The resulting Black Box Recordings-issued Union, which featured the radio hits “Mama,” “Heavy,” “White Noise,” and “Lightning,” arrived in September 2014.

The Glorious Sons is available for corporate events, private shows, milestone celebrations (birthday, anniversary), fundraisers, festivals, and more.
