Sons Of A Tradesman’s sound Stirs the Pot
Sons of A Tradesman‘s debut album Stir The Pot is out now. The concept album’s storyline was developed by their late bassist Nicholas Polycarpo and tells the story of four brothers fighting for a coveted throne – a tale that Polycarpo intended on transforming into a novel before he passed away. Now, it is a musical masterpiece created in his honor.
The band’s hard rock riffs and chilling vocals set the tone for the story, which is intertwined in the tracklist. After releasing the first two singles “The Bandit” and “The Vigilante,” they are gearing up to unveil the full collection of self-recorded, produced, and mixed tracks next month.
Sons of A Tradesman are paving their own path to greatness inspired by their heroes and built on their ambition to become the next rock ‘n’ roll staples. It all comes down to their masterful musicianship and fervent passion for hard rock:
“Someone once told us that ‘instead of trying to pay tribute to your heroes, try to start making them look bad,’ meaning that instead of trying to emulate sounds that have been done before, try to make something new and completely different.”
Rev your engines as West Palm Beach rock ‘n’ rollers Sons of a Tradesman are destined to become the next must-have band blaring in your surround sound speakers. The band formed in 2017 with front man Andrew Alonso, drummer Chris Santiago, bassist Nicholas Polycarpo, and guitarist PJ Saiani.
A Bluesy Rock n Roll Experience
The band started playing live cover shows and writing original music. After about a year PJ left the band and was replaced by guitarist Mike Guido, formerly of the West Palm Beach band Raggy Monster. In the summer of 2019 the band started recording their debut album, however, the untimely death of the bassist Nicholas Polycarpo halted the album production and left the band wondering what their fate would entail. After some time of grieving they decided that, in honor of their brother, they would continue the legacy and finish what they started.
With the addition of bassist Marvin Hawkins, founding member and creative genius of Coffin Varnish, the band pressed forward and completed what would be their debut album “Stir the Pot,” a themed album about four brothers competing for their family’s wealth and heir to the throne.
The band’s musical style is one-of-a-kind, with each member bringing a unique style to the table. Andrew derives his style and attitude from good ol’ boy outlaw country. His biggest influences are Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, and Merle Haggard. However, his voice carries the tone of Robert Plant, Brian Johnson, and Steven Tyler. He also has classical opera training. Chris draws inspiration from John Bonham and Dave Grohl. Mike is a self taught blues rock guitarist drawing influences from the greats such as Jimmy Page, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Rory Gallagher, and John Frusciante. Marvin draws inspiration from progressive styles of bass ala Les Claypool.
All together they seamlessly meld into Sons of a Tradesman – a melting pot of vivacious, high energy, in-your-face, good ole rock ‘n’ roll.
