Ken Griffin's The Favourite Sons have a new album out this month.
Those lovely people at Low Rent Recordings are to give an Irish release on April 29 to The Great Deal Of Love, the second album by Favourite Sons whose leader is former Rollerskate Skinny man Ken Griffin.
As Griffin explains from his current New York base, it’s a very different beast to its predecessor.
“Down Beside Your Beauty, our first effort as Favourite Sons, was written during a time of great loss in my life, which frankly overshadowed any real desire to create art,” he reflects. “The result was a raw spill of emotion, which has its merits but was a bit of a step off the artistic path I’d been on. After some time had passed and done its kind healing, I could feel it again; see and hear it again, the melodies and words that had once offered me a whole world to visit. The result of this group’s enduring friendship and desire to create a reaching music is The Great Deal Of Love, enjoy.”
We already are, thanks! Favourite Sons return home over the June Bank Holiday for shows at Cork X Southwest and the Forbidden Fruit festivals.
