    The Sons & Heirs (A Tribute to The Smiths & Morrissey)
    by Rob Sheffield, Rolling Stone

    The Sons & Heirs. New York’s finest band devoted to the music of the Smiths and Morrissey. Handsome devils. Stalwart lovers for sure. They’re twice as much fun as an actual Morrissey show — because they bring more heart and enthusiasm to these songs than the man himself.

    The Sons & Heirs have played this music all over the world, from Tel Aviv to Los Angeles. Their Valentine’s Day event Unloveable has become a New York ritual—every year it’s the toughest ticket in town. In 2015 they headlined the international Smiths-Morrissey convention in Hollywood.

    But wherever The Sons & Heirs play, they bring passionate love for the whole musical journey of Morrissey, Marr and their mates — the songs that saved our lives. That’s why they always bring out a crowd of fans who love the Smiths as much as they do. (Including an actual member of the Smiths, Andy Rourke, as well as Morrissey’s long-time drummer, Spencer Cobrin - both have gotten up on stage to play with them.)

    Every show is different. Every show permanently changes my mind about this or that song’s brilliance. The Sons & Heirs invite the crowd to sing along, dance, invade the stage. There’s always a song I’d forgotten about, always a song that makes me think “well, they won’t top this one tonight,” until they do. They open my eyes, like a tattooed boy from Birkenhead.

    The Sons & Heirs get the tiniest details right, but more importantly, they bring the spirit that makes this music immortal. They sing their lives, and probably your life, too. Definitely mine.
