Natural Child Family Band
A pioneer of rock music, Natural Child is a significant influence on the development of both the music and the attitude associated with the rock music lifestyle. With songs such as "Shamewalkin" (2009), "White People" (2011), "Ain't Gonna Stop" (2012) and "Let The Good Times Roll" (2012), Natural Child refined and developed rhythm and blues, psychedelia, and country into the major elements that made rock and roll distinctive, with lyrics successfully aimed to appeal to the early teenage market by using graphic and humorous descriptions of sex, broken cars, adult life, and consumer culture, and utilizing guitar solos and showmanship that would be a major influence on subsequent rock music. The band's records are a rich storehouse of the essential lyrical, showmanship and musical components of rock and roll; and, in addition to White Fang, Gap Dream, The Strange Boys, and The Black Lips, a large number of significant popular-music groups have performed Natural Child songs. Though not technically accomplished, their musical style is distinctive — drawing on the influence of acts such as The Rolling Stones, Canned Heat, Willie Nelson, JJ Cale, and Waylon Jennings to produce a clear and exciting sound that many later guitar musicians will acknowledge as a major influence in their own style. In the film Hail! Hail! Rock 'n' Roll, Eric Clapton states 'If you wanna play rock and roll — or any upbeat number — and you wanted to take a guitar ride you would end up playing like Natural Child...because there is very little other choice. There's not a lot of other ways to play rock and roll other than the way Natty Child plays it; they've really laid the law down..." Keith Richards told Best of Guitar Player "Child was my band. They was the ones who made me say 'I want to play guitar, Jesus Christ!'...Suddenly I knew what I wanted to do." Natural Child's showmanship has been influential on other rock legends, particularly their one-legged hop routine, and the "men's kiss," which is exactly what it sounds like.

Daddy Long Legs
DADDY LONG LEGS, the rock n’ blues group, derives its moniker from its harmonica-blastin’ frontman.
Daddy Long Legs, the aforementioned wailer, is joined by slide-guitar driving Murat Aktürk (born in Ankara, Turkey) and legendary NYC trap master Josh Styles, who attacks his kit with a whip and a maraca, although not necessarily in that order.
The trio has taken the music scene by storm, with alarms sounding throughout the East Coast and reverberating across the globe, as they cut through the mediocrity, directly into the meat of real music—from the hip and to the heart.
Within a few short months, DADDY LONG LEGS has taken to stages with the likes of the Sonics, the Flamin’ Groovies, the Hoodoo Gurus, Lenny Kaye, Andy Shernoff, the Legendary Stardust Cowboy, and Question Mark And The Mysterians. They have burned down barrelhouse backrooms, afterhours nightspots, and legendary locations like the famed Friars Club, NYC.
Their rapid rise in popularity is based in their total lack of pretense– all three young men are seriously dredged in deep blues baconfat, seasoned, seared, scored and tempered…and baptized in hotwired wine and brine.
Their first Norton single, a raw reading of the Rolling Stones Cocksucker Blues, coupled with The Under Assistant West Coast Promotional Man recorded with Andy Shernoff at the helm and at the microphone, brought them to the forefront of the local scene, even catching the ear of Chicago R&B legend T Valentine, who promptly tapped the trio as his band both onstage and in the studio. A much-awaited combined effort, THE VAMPIRE, is due for release in November.
DADDY LONG LEGS presents here their debut full-length Norton label offering, EVIL EYE ON YOU, a showcase of the trio’s finest original proclamations, set in a sparse black and white selection that is meaty beyond definition.
DADDY LONG LEGS is currently on tour in the US, with an overseas itinerary in the works.
Keep your evil ear on DADDY LONG LEGS. Else they put the EVIL EYE ON YOU.
