Black dirt in the veins, born of Peorian Illinois Midwestern folk-country, Harvest Sons are hot off the presses and quickly becoming one of Central Illinois' favorite bands. Since its inception in January, the band of 5 has managed to gain the hearts of many from Burlington to Rock Island to Peoria to Champaign.
Harvest Sons have shared the stage with Chris Antonik, nominated Canada's best new blues artist in 2011 by Canada's Maple Blues Awards. Chris said "I love your songs. I was jamming to them backstage!". The band has also shared the stage with Scott H. Biram, who is a world renowned touring one man band, and most recently Harvest Sons opened for Anderson East at Pour Bros Taproom. Harvest Sons is also slated to play at the Backroads Music Festival in Galva, IL with acts like David Lee Murphy, Easton Corbin and many others.
Harvest Sons released their first-ever collection of recorded songs on their EP "First Cut", which hit itunes in April 2016. The band is getting ready to release their single "Illinois Stars" this fall as a run up to their first full album slated to be out some time around the beginning of 2017.
The band features Seth Cocquit, Nik Grafelman, Andrew Greiner, Nolan Peterson and Nathan Glaser and is one of the most original acts around; from ripping fiddle solos to guitar solos that are reminiscent of a new take on country, classic rock, roots music and bluegrass.
