Magnolia Sons

A Nashville, TN 12-piece supergroup reviving vintage rock and soul sounds
It's like a burning in your soul, your guts are sinking like a stone.
lyrics from Holiday Review

Magnolia Sons are a nostalgic rock and soul group based out of Nashville, Tennessee. They are a 12-piece supergroup composed of artists and musicians from all over the United States. Their music is a tribute to the vintage sound of classic rock and soul from the 1960's and 1970's created by writers Austin Aguirre and Benjamin A. Harper.

Their musical influences include Stevie Wonder, the Supremes and the Temptations. They are known for their pop, retro sound and precise live show made up of an all-girl backup singing group, and complete horn section.

Hailing from Nashville, Tennessee, Magnolia Sons are a 12-piece supergroup founded on a collective love of nostalgic rock and soul sounds from the 1960’s and 1970’s. The group was created by songwriters Austin Aguirre and Benjamin A. Harper, in late 2004, originally under the name Tuesday’s Debut.

Before relocating to Nashville, and expanding to twelve members, Magnolia Sons were in Lake Charles, Louisiana and started out as a four piece. In early 2005, the band began writing original material and went on to release a full-length album called An Hour In The Air.

Over the next few years, Magnolia Sons began adding more members, releasing a number of EPs, and performing hundreds of shows across the United States. In 2011, Magnolia Sons released a five-song mini album entitled Free, which included retro pop songs like “The Magic Man” and “Pass On My Love.” 2012 sees the release of the “How Can I Get Over You?” / “Leave Your Troubles Behind” single, influenced by upbeat, vintage soul sounds. Magnolia Sons, which also includes an all-girl backup group and full horn section, are currently touring primarily around the southeastern part of the United States.
