To Purchase: www.sonsoffathers.net

The people and places of the Lone Star State’s Hill Country populate the tunes by this singer/songwriter duo, whether they’re celebrating family ties (as in “Mother Dear” or the title track) or capturing the region’s vast landscape (“Flatland,” “Wind Turbines”). David Beck and Paul Cauthen distinguish themselves with closely matched harmony vocals and complementary writing styles, inviting comparisons to the likes of The Everly Brothers, Foster and Lloyd, and The Avett Brothers. They avoid typical Texas clichés in favor of something more personal: tracks like “Weather Balloons” and “The Country” depict their native state with humor and a tinge of pathos. Though Sons of Fathers can fairly be termed an alt-country group, songs like the acoustic folk tune “Adam and Eve” or the ‘50s rock-styled “Ruthless” show their ability to work beyond genre boundaries. Coproducer Lloyd Maines (of Wilco and Dixie Chicks renown) helps Sons of Fathers expand their sonic palette by adding his own pedal steel and Dobro work. Sons and Fathers are a worthy addition to Texas’ maverick musical tradition.
