On Wednesday, August 20th, the New Jersey quartet, Young Rising Sons, performed at the West Hollywood venue, The Troubadour. Opening for Little Daylight, this was their first show in Los Angeles.
Despite a few technical difficulties that delayed the start of their set, the fellas of Young Rising Son certainly rose to the occasion.
From the first few harmonized notes of “King of the World,” the second released song off of their first EP, one can quickly hear why Young Rising Sons are definitely stars in the music world.In fact, the band has already been featured on the NHL Awards, the MLB Network, and NBC’s summer television campaign, and it will not be long before both “King of the World” and the more widespread track “High” are staples on mainstream radio.
I really do believe that Young Rising Sons has all the makings of success.
Their songs are infectious pop-rock hits with neat harmonies, sprawling lead vocals, and effervescent instrumentation. They create fun music that audiences enjoy singing along to. While they were only on stage for about an hour, it was very clear to me just how upbeat and empowering their music is to people.
I was also very impressed with the lead singer, Andy Tongren’s voice. His vocals are effortless and uplifting. He is certainly charismatic too and was more then happy to take a photo with me post-show.
