Heathen Sons are an authentic Southern Rock band hailing from Nashville, TN. Their sound is diverse ranging from everything between country rock, folk rock and rock 'n' roll. They’ve made a name for themselves by opening for bands like Nikki Lane, Turnpike Troubadours, Will Hoge, Kentucky Headhunters, American Aquarium and many more.
Lead singer, Josh Huggins was raised in the Appalachian Mountains in a small Georgia town which has played a heavy influence throughout his songwriting career. Huggins grew up in a musical household where his father was not only a musician, a songwriter and a producer but also toured for over a decade with Grammy nominated Artists. Prior to his move to Nashville, Huggins spent a lot of his time in the mountains fishing, hunting, camping, teaching himself how to play the guitar and began his songwriting process at a very early age.
In 2015, they released a killer EP, Through The Eyes of a Lion “which gave audiences a small taste of their stellar rock and roll.” – Zac Brydges, The Revue. In October 2017 they released their self-titled album, Heathen Sons which the Revue noted their 12-track album as “killer guitar riffs, outstanding vocals, great harmonies and each song is a powerhouse that will get you up singing and grooving.” They also debuted both their “Futures” and “Friends” singles live in Nashville’s Lightning 100 One RPM Studio in 2017.
Currently, Heathen Sons are in the process of recording their second album, "Born to Lose" at Sputnik Sound with producer Mitch Dane. Inspired by some heavy life events, including the death of Joshua's first born son, "Born to Lose" is deep, raw and heartfelt. They are looking to release "Born to Lose" close to early spring/summer of 2019.
Heathen Sons’ sound has been impacted by many generations of music and bands such as Tom Petty, Led Zeppelin, The Eagles, Kings of Leon, Cadillac Three, Ryan Adams, Jason Isbell and many more. They have done a remarkable job of combining their influences, creating their own authentic spin to the southern side of rock 'n’ roll.
