Sons of Fathers

Texas Rock Band Sons Of Fathers Actually Inspired By Their Dads

April 25, 2013 - David Beck and Paul Cauthen were both playing around San Marcos, Texas, when they recognized it might be a good move to combine their talents and became Sons of Fathers.

Actually they went by their last names until another more famous Beck took notice. The band just released their second album Burning Days. The band name makes sense because both David and Paul have musicians in their families. In David’s case his grandfather was a gospel musician who taught him to play guitar while Paul’s father was a touring musician. We’ll also hear how Paul ended up on a chain gang and how he convinced the foreman to let him do something typically prisoners are not allowed to do.
