Sons of Sevilla

Sons of Sevilla

Sons of Sevilla are blood brothers Henry and Reuben Smith who hail from Featherstone in the North of England.

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.

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..”
