Reggae Rock for the world,
Deeply rooted in (SO)uth (W)est (FLO)rida.
"After 2 successful EP-length releases (SOWFLO/2010 & Rising/2013) and 5 self-booked national tours, SowFLo have built themselves a rabid fanbase and an increasingly impressive reputation. Which, by the way, spreads far beyond their native shores of Naples, Florida."
- SOWFLO is slated to release their debut full-length album "Such Is Life" on June 30th 2016. The album was recorded at Studio Center Miami with engineers Richard Maloney and five-time Grammy winner Marc Lee.
"Their music is currently in rotation on the radio in South Florida, internationally in Aruba, and as far as Athens, Greece. Their videos have garnered over 300,000 total views on Youtube. With a modest but burgeoning international fan base, as well as strong backing at home in the USA; Sowflo seems poised to shock the Reggae world."
Wilder Sons was created on a humid back porch in South Florida in 2013 by indie scene veterans Brian Blount (Vox/guitar) and Jake Rubington (Vox/Guitar). Both experienced front men of previous touring bands, the two joined forces to construct a beachy alt-rock style that is stimulating the senses of the progressive alternative scene. Transcendent guitar riffs weave effortlessly between catchy melodies, upbeat bass lines, and complex drum progressions; all of which paint a captivating backdrop to Brian’s reminiscent lyricism.
Their 2014 self-titled EP created a strong local following helping the group land opening gigs with bands like The Story So Far, Copeland, Turnover, Further Seems Forever, and Mewithoutyou to name a few. In 2016, Wilder Sons, along with the help of their devoted fans, ran a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund the release of their second EP, “Scatterbrain”. Since it’s release in November, Scatterbrain has been rapidly gaining the attention of Spotify listeners and Pandora playlists alike. It was also around this time that the group rounded out their line up with the addition of Dan Springs (Bass) and Nic Viens (Drums), both seasoned musicians who add a refreshing dynamic to the foursome. Wilder Sons continue to push the boundaries, creating a new sound that is pulsating through the prism of the Southwest Florida scene and beaming out to a national audience.
