Sons of Hippies

Griffons At The Gates Of Heaven

July 16

Cleopatra Records

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.

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)
