About The Glorious Sons:

The Glorious Sons' are (main songwriter) Brett Emmons, Brett’s older brother Jay Emmons (guitar), Chris Koster (guitar), Adam Paquette (drums) and Chris Huot (bass). Together they capture all the listlessness and confusion of young adulthood in 10 doses of modern rock.

Glorious Sons’ hardscrabble tales come naturally. A high-spirited rock band with blue collar roots, they truly found themselves when Brett quit school in 2013 to join them as lead singer. Subsequent years of hard touring and hard partying — sometimes in places so sketchy, as Brett puts it, "There was no electricity in the building" — provided fuel for the songs on Young Beauties & Fools.  

Whether it’s the rock 'n' roll bender “My Pour Heart,” the not-so-classic boy-meets-girl story of “Josie,” or the deeply embarrassing punch-up at a wedding tale “Everything Is Alright,” Brett’s songwriting deftly explores the imperfect humanity of both himself and the many characters he introduces over the course of the album.  

It wasn’t easy to capture that realness. It wasn’t until they started exploring a collection of old voice memos on Brett’s phone that they had their eureka moment. The subsequent creative outburst resulted in an album written in 12 days and recorded in 14.  

There should be lots of opportunities to see Glorious Sons play the songs from Young Beauties & Fools. By their count the band has driven across Canada "at least 10 times" and played upwards of 300 shows to support their last album.  

"You don't know what you’re going to get night to night from us," says Jay. "It's something you have to see and it's interesting and powerful."  

"It's also an inch from either side of falling off the tracks every single night," adds Brett.   Which is perfectly fitting for a band living young and foolish.
