Biography

My Lovely Son is the solo project of a Canadian musician named Satnam Minhas. Augmented by subtle percussion and warm bass, his lush sound is built on layers of ethereal guitar and hushed vocals. Seamlessly weaving together melodic lines like strands of colourful silk, My Lovely Son pulls the listener into a vulnerable world of minor chords and major lyrical themes to accompany them on a deeply rewarding sonic journey.

Recorded in its entirety in the bedroom Minhas grew up in, The Hunt Is On (Independent) is the debut full-length release from My Lovely Son. The songs reflect the struggles of balancing two cultures, while trying to maintain a sense of identity for oneself. Themes of romance, angst, rebellion and defeat course throughout the album’s ten beautiful songs, coming together in a world of sound that has been described as a “deep cauldron of magic.”

Drawing influences from bands and artists like Radiohead, Grizzly Bear, Beck and Beach House, while subtly incorporating his Eastern roots, My Lovely Son has crafted an ambient-folk sound certain to appeal to the discerning listener of any generation.

Based in Victoria on Vancouver Island, MY LOVELY SON is planning a showcase tour of Eastern Canada for Fall 2010. International interest is already bubbling following the inclusion of key album track NEW CHANCE on Volume 9 of the Oh! Canada compilation series from respected UK music blog, The Line of Best Fit.
