Rising Sons

September 5 @ 10:00 pm - 11:30 pm
Rising Sons


Hailing from the live music capital of the world, Austin Texas, the Rising Sons are one

of the most promising acts to come around in a while. The band already has a buzz

brewing, yet has just started to dip it’s toe outside of Austin.

Born from a love of the music from the late 1960s, 1970s, and the 1990s, from the

desperation blues of Muddy and the Wolf, to the soul of Otis Redding and Sly, to the

sweaty British rock and roll stomp of Humble Pie and the Stones, to country-rock

landscapes painted by the Eagles and Gram Parsons, the Rising Sons deliver timeless

music that pulls from all of those threads, creating a sound that is new yet missed like

a long lost friend, now on your doorstep.

Formed by guitarist and lead vocalist Jake Sherard and Billy Slater, the band started as

a cover band, playing songs by Led Zeppelin, the Eagles, Levon Helm, and others. The

band went through a few members before bringing in bassist, vocalist, and

multi-instrumentalist Matt Temple and keyboardist/multi-instrumentalist/vocalist David

Hunter-Thacker, solidifying the line-up.

The band has been playing residency shows in North Austin as well as select shows at

hand-picked venues in Austin and beyond. Throughout these performances, the band

electrifies the audience with it’s original material and unique versions of covers.

From songs like the rock and roll epic “Long Time Ago” to the blues filtered through a

Louisiana swamp of “Swampass”, to the road song celebration of “Wanna See You

Smile”, the band’s songs are not another nod to the classic and timeless sounds of

yesteryear but a return to the honest truths and rusted fables of tried and true themes

that affect all of us. Like running into an old friend, these songs take you on journeys

back to the heady days of being young and free, yet remind you of the roads you have


The band is headed into Hidden Creek studios to record in August. Look for the Rising

Sons to bring its unique blend of Cosmic Southern Soul Music to your eyes and ears!
