NOMINATED "BEST ROCK ACT" - UMA's 2018
"The Second Sons are the best thing to happen to rock n roll since Booker T fell in with the MG’s. I absolutely love their new songs. While being just about as old as Elvis, it's also entirely and excitingly brand new. It drives like a freight train and punches like a very young Mike Tyson. In a bleak and strange time -- I write from the middle of America -- this band gives me hope for the republic of rock n roll."

“Every now and then along comes a band that see magic in the old ways, is seduced by the sound of music without the layers of technology that get in the way of great songs, and who are also talented musicians. The Second Sons are just such a band, one that revels in the past but with a modernity that makes their music fresh and alive.”
– Richard Havers, UDiscoverMusic
“Swim your way now through an ocean of hypnotic rhythms and trust me you better swim fast. These clever sharp bandits will grab you straight away…”
“On the cusp of a new rock revolution, with a sound that inspires rebellion in all forms, The Second Sons are making music that would be considered a thoughtcrime in Orwell’s dystopian vision…”
“The Second Sons have bottled the verve and gusto of ‘proper’ 70s bands, and hit you with a killer wall of sound: the beefy drive of the rhythm section, the trenchant twin-guitar attack, meaty sax and powerful laddish vocals defy you to stay still…When it comes to Good Time, adrenaline-fuelled entertainment The Second Sons are second to none…”
