Our Bio

Nobody expects a duo to sound like a five piece Blues band but Patrick Byrne (lead Vocals, Guitar and Stomp Box) and John Phillips (lead Guitar) as Sons of The Blues didn’t buy that line.

With a combination of musical techniques, skill and polish they have created a unique and infectious sound that has proved to have universal appeal.

Inspired and guided by the Blues greats like Willie Dixon, Robert Johnson and Jimi Hendrix, Sons of The Blues generate improvised and surprising versions of some of the best Blues tunes as well as turning their hands to make some high quality original arrangements.

Created in 2011 in Castlemaine, Sons of The Blues are now a highly experienced operation committed to putting on shows that attract and entertain audiences with their passion in live performance and their crafty and clever original songs.

They have played every year of the Bendigo Blues and Roots Festival since 2012 and have successfully toured Victoria including shows at well known Blues Clubs.

As a Blues Duo that takes their audiences on an exciting and often unexpected sound journey Sons of The Blues are keen to see where their musical experiment will take them in future.
