Old School Vibes, Modern Rock Twist.
Native Sons began their journey as a recording project in 2018 by a group of enthusiastic musicians in Louisville, Kentucky. Lead singer, Ashton Blake, and his bandmates caught the ear of Maryland based HighVolMusic’s founder, Bill Chavis, who helped launch their first album. Due to circumstances beyond their control, the band’s recordings were delayed, but Blake was determined to have them hit the airwaves. At the end of 2019, the bands first album, "The Natives Are Restless", was finally ready for released, however would be put on hold once again due to the COVID-19 pandemic, leading to its official release in March 2021.
The line-up of Native Sons has since changed into a working and touring band, playing well-known venues such as the infamous Whisky A Go Go in Los Angeles, and large festivals including Monsters of Rock Cruise's, Monsters on the Mountain two years in a row, Nashville’s RocknPod Expo, and Brad Lee’s Masquerade Madness. They have also shared the stage with former Dokken guitarist George Lynch, Kickin Valentina, and Resist and Bite. The band has also been celebrated among 200 other artists in Spotify’s New Classic Rock in North America Playlist in 2021 and 2022.
With 2023 on the horizon, Native Sons looks forward to the release of their new album, "Shadow Head". Two songs have already been released on video and all streaming outlets: “Drama” and “Red Leather Woman.”
