Sons of Sevilla

Territory: DE | AT | CH

Sons of Sevilla are blood brothers Henry and Reuben Smith who hail from Featherstone in the North of England. Sons Of Sevilla began in 2020 during lockdown by chance. At the time Reuben was working on solo material for his second album with Soundway Records. When Henry visited Reuben at his home studio to play guitar on his record, one afternoon they wrote a couple of songs. Liking the sound and vibe of the tracks, they began writing and recording every day for the entire summer that was inspired by JJ Cale and a lifetime of the music they had heard growing up in their family pubs over the years. Henry takes care of business on guitar and bass, while brother Reuben steers the vocals and dazzles with thoughtful key work. Recently relocating to Spain, Henry & Reuben now live between the stunning mountains of Andalucia and their birthplace. Having had a close connection to the city of Sevilla since they were kids when their family visited each summer, and Reuben eventually playing football for Sevilla in his early adult years, out of these fond memories Sons of Sevilla was born. Their sound is inspired by early 70s records like JJ Cales Naturally & Nino Ferrers record with Radiah Et Le Sud, and Neil Youngs Harvest Moon and these references are evident throughout their opening effort. As they step out with their debut long player on the hallowed Southern Californian super label, Ubiquity Records, the second LP is already in the making. They have worked on the album with Adrian Quesada of Black Pumas out in Austin TX, with Adrian producing the record and performing on two of the tracks. Additional guests on the recently recorded follow-up album include Herbie Mann’s son, Geoff Mann on drums, percussion and flute along with Marcos Garcia (aka Chico Mann) lending his talents on guitar and bass who are both accomplished artists on their own right. Having recently signed with Space Agency in the USA, FMLY representing them EU & UK side, Emerged Talent in Germany, Switzerland Austria, Sons of Sevilla will be hitting the open road in 2025 and taking the sounds of SOS to the world. Their highly anticipated album, Lullabies For A Wildcat, is a collection of tracks recorded at their family home in the summer of 2020. Shades of 70s psychedelia echo throughout, with tripped out layered vocals building a vibration that seems way beyond their years like a hazy hedonistic cloud of smoke in surround sound. “They’re the first songs we’d ever written together. We had no band around us and hardly any equipment to record so it’s pretty lo-fi. We recorded and played everything on the record. Our drum machine appears as the drummer on most of the album..”
