Young Rising Sons:

At a time when cynicism and moral outrage are quite common in modern music, Young Rising Sons choose to focus on the brighter side of life. According to lead singer/guitarist Andy Tongren, the Red Bank, New Jersey band’s debut single “High” was created with the intention of writing a “soulful pick-me-up, an honest account of life’s ups and downs, all with a glimmer of hope.” Tongren adds that the recently released “High” is the perfect example of the “feel good disposition” that shapes Young Rising Sons’ view on life and music.

Tongren matter-of-factly rationalizes the band’s approach of writing with the listener in mind, “music is here to make people feel something, so why not try and make people feel good?” Tongren describes “High” as a “song about letting go and enjoying the better times in life.”

Staying true to that mantra, Tongren and band-mates Dylan Scott (lead guitar), Julian Dimagiba (bass), and Steve Patrick (drums) firmly believe that the best music is inspired by personal experiences. As a result, the video for “High” was filmed right in their own backyard.  “It made sense to shoot “High” in Red Bank, by the Ocean,” explains Tongren. “We wanted to film it where we spend our time together.”

Like most young buzzing bands on the rise, Young Rising Sons have benefitted from the counsel of more experienced industry experts. Shep Goodman and Aaron Accetta of Dirty Canvas Music, home of American Authors and The Karma Killers, discovered Young Rising Sons in 2013.  Shep and Aaron recently brought the band to Interscope Records where they will release their debut EP this summer.

Hunter Hunted:

To say that they’ve accomplished a lot in a short amount of time would be an understatement. Since the bands inception in January of 2013, they’ve been included in MTV’s Artists To Watch, Nylon’s “Bands to look out for”, Starbucks “Pick of The Week”, Teen Vogue’s “Jam’s of the year”, Billboard Magazines “Scouting Report”, and KCRW’s “Bands we Love”.

With standout track “Keep Together” making the rounds on TV shows like The Vampire Diaries, The Real World, and Pretty Little Liars, the band has performed everywhere from The Conan O’Brien show to The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. A few months since their Billboard charting debut EP, the band is keeping busy, doing a US tour with Fitz and the Tantrums, a Midwest tour with the Mowgli’s, dates with Weezer, and a fall run with FUN. This Spring they head out on a two month tour with Twenty One Pilots followed by stops at Bonnaroo, Sasquatch, Governors Ball, Firefly, and a number of other major festivals.
