    The Sons & Heirs

    Alternative Rock

    "These guys love the band, and they're really passionate about it" - Andy Rourke, The Smiths

    "Twice as fun as an actual Morrissey show" - Rob Sheffield, Rolling Stone

    "New York's best Smiths tribute" - New York Post

    "By all accounts, the greatest tribute to the Manchester group making music today. Far from a novelty cover band, The Sons & Heirs are a genuine loveletter to one of the greatest rock acts of all time." - No Country for New Nashville

    "The Sons & Heirs visually and musically approximate The Smiths in their prime” - Jerusalem Post 

    "The Smiths will never re-form...so for most fans The Sons & Heirs are the closest they will ever get" - The Daily Beast

    For more than a decade, the world's premiere Smiths & Morrissey tribute The Sons & Heirs have performed everywhere from Tel Aviv to New York to Austin to LA, sharing the stage with The Smiths' bassist Andy Rourke, Morrissey's longtime drummer Spencer Cobrin, and Doug Gillard (Nada Surf, Guided by Voices).

     

    "Unloveable in Nashville" is a special edition of their eight-years-running, sold-out Valentine's Day show in Brooklyn, which Rolling Stone's Rob Sheffield called "New York's toughest ticket" in 2015. This is their first annual belated V-day event in Nashville.

    Breakout Psych-Pop project TAYLS is a lighthouse to guide your heart home. An East Nashville Supergroup created by vocalist/writer/multi-instrumentalist Taylor Cole, TAYLS is a rebellion against the Nashville standard. After almost a decade of performing in various Nashville-based bands (Creature Comfort/ Chalaxy) Cole is ready for something new. 

    “I want to change the way Nashville views music and art. I want to get rid of this half circle of hate in front of every stage in this city. Why don’t people stand up front and lose themselves for a night? I want to make you forget about your real life, make you feel like you’re back on the playground.”

    Taylor grew up in small town Tullahoma, Tennessee—right between Bonnaroo and Jack Daniels. He came from a musical family, his Dad played drums and mother sang back up for Faith Hill, Brad Paisley, and Tim McGraw, but it wasn’t until years later that he found his desire to front his own band. TAYLS is the culmination of a musical life – an effort for Cole to display his inner Golden Light Child. With his first single “Pop Tart (Queer Boy Small Town)” Taylor wants to reach out to every other person that felt ostracized for being different. Calling back to the snarky attitude of Oasis or Jesus Mary Chain, and the Freaky-Art-Pop style of The Flaming Lips or Beck, TAYLS is an amplifier for Cole’s radiating positivity.

    “I’m tired of boring shows! You’re an artistic entertainer—be artistic or be entertaining, otherwise you’re just a couple of people playing band."
