RFE2022 • THE GLORIOUS SONS (Kingston, ON)
SUNDAY, AUGUST 21 • 9:30PM • MAIN STAGE
From their very start, The Glorious Sons have achieved the near impossible by sounding both familiar and unprecedented, offering a bold new idea of what it means to be a rock ‘n’ roll band in the modern era. Fronted by brothers Brett and Jay Emmons, the Kingston, ON-based quintet have resolutely manifested all of rock ‘n’ roll’s most positive principles – creativity and adventure, energy and expression, unbridled individuality and spirit of community. The past decade saw the band unleash three remarkable studio albums fueled by immense ambition and strikingly emotive songcraft, their stadium-sized hooks ringing out with an ardent, impassioned spirit that earned them two #1 Rock airplay smashes in the US and thirteen consecutive top 10 Rock radio hits in Canada.
“I truly believe that, to use the old cliché, rock ‘n’ roll will never die,” says lead singer-songwriter Brett Emmons. “It’s not just a sound anymore. It’s more of an attitude, a freedom of expression that people will always believe in.”
