WAYWARD SONS is a UK rock act made up of Toby Jepson (Vocals/Guitar), Sam Wood (Guitar), Nic Wastell (Bass), Dave Kemp (Keys) and Phil Martini (Drums). They have an impressive resume of groups they have previously worked with – LITTLE ANGELS, GUN, SPEAR OF DESTINY, TREASON KINGS and CHROME MOLLY to name a few - which is reassuring in terms of the band as players, but doesn’t really hint at their sound. WAYWARD SONS sound nothing like the sum of their parts. The music is hard rock but mixed with a vitality and energy – both musically and lyrically.
The band is set to release four videos to support single releases. The videos together will make one short film. You can see the first video (for debut single “Until The End”) below.
Toby Jepson had the basis of songs written when the band formed. Together they then took these rough song ideas and forged their own sound. Lyrically the album sees Jepson treading a far more personal line than some of his previous output.
“I feel I have unfinished business, stories still left to tell, points to make, noise to create, all of the above... besides, it wasn't a choice, more of a need. My intention is very simple. I want to write about what makes me tick; about what I believe in. Hopefully you will believe in it too. It will be warts and all,” says Jepson.
The album was produced by WAYWARD SONS (Toby Jepson’s previous credits as a songwriter and producer include the likes of Katie Melua, THE VIRGIN MARYS, THE ANSWER and TOSELAND) and Chris D’Adda (Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds).
