Debut single ‘Spaceship Ride’ from Sons of Hippies with bonus track ‘Mirrorball’
High in the mountains of Tennessee, Sons of Hippies was conceived amid fellow music lovers at a festival on a 700-acre farm on a sunny June afternoon; their name originated when Brazilian native Jonas Canales and Florida-bred Katherine Kelly probed familial bonds to discover they were, indeed, children of hippies. The duo’s dreamily melodic but complexly synthesized music required the mentorship of Pro-Pain guitarist Tom Klimchuck who produced and played bass on the band’s March ’09 debut, Warriors of the Light, which received the critic’s choice award from Tampa’s popular Creative Loafing publication for “Best Modern-Sounding Record” of 2009.
While on tour throughout the East Coast, Sons of Hippies wrote their sophomore album, A-Morph (also produced by Klimchuck,) which was released in September 2010 and was accompanied by a journal Kelly kept detailing the recording sessions. During this year the group also recorded but never released an EP, Invisible Personalities, titled after a rogue AM radio transmission that was captured in their studio on Kelly’s loop station.
In the summer of 2011 the band released a 5-song space rock concept album called Fade to White which was distributed with a typewritten lyric book.
Bassist David Daly joined S.O.H. in 2011. David is also working on a solo project called Completely From Mountains.
In December 2012 the band signed with Cleopatra Records and a full length album is scheduled for release in 2013. The album was mixed by Jack Endino ( Nirvana, L7, Mudhoney ) and mastered at Abbey Road Studios by Andy Walter (Radiohead, David Bowie, U2).
