THE GLORIOUS SONS:
“Young Beauties & Fools” is the new album from Kingston, Ontario’s The Glorious Sons. Comprised of brothers Brett (vocals) and Jay Emmons (guitar), Chris Huot (bass), Adam Paquette (drums) and Chris Koster (guitar), the band has seven consecutive top-10 radio singles, over 400 live performances under their belts. Add two SiriusXM Indie Awards and a Juno Nomination for Rock Album of the Year, and they have quickly established themselves as one of Canada’s premiere rock acts.
A soulful rock singer/songwriter in the vein of Jeff Buckley and Joe Cocker, Ontario native Billy Raffoul was schooled in music from a young age. The son of respected regional solo artist Jody Raffoul, Billy spent his childhood immersed in the finer points of rock history, watching his father perform, and learning to play guitar himself. By his late teens, he’d begun performing around his hometown of Leamington, Ontario and nearby towns, writing songs and honing his stagecraft. A session vocal gig in nearby Detroit proved to be his first real break, leading first to a management deal then to a record deal with Interscope. Splitting his time between Nashville and Los Angeles, Raffoul released his debut single, “Driver,” in the spring of 2017.
