This band has no press


Still working on that hot first release.



Darren O'Brien (vocals/guitar), his brother Sean O'Brien (lead guitar)
and their childhood friend Neil Thollander (bass) of Calistoga, CA have
been playing music together since they were kids. Their first foray into rocking out was a punk rock
band called Something Cool. Along with Something Cool, multiple members
of The Restless Sons have been fully involved and active in other bands
such as The Cruz Missiles and God's Oddities, and have toured the US
with Santa Cruz's Dun Bin Had. Darren has also been playing solo
acoustic shows in the Sonoma/Napa county areas for several years,
playing his own brand of indie folk/punk; heavily influenced by greats
like Chuck Ragan and Mike Ness. It was at these solo acoustic folk shows
that the songs, sound, and idea of the Restless Sons slowly developed.
  In 2012 The Restless Sons added drummer Bryan Goodrich, originally hailing
from Wenatchee, WA, to the permanent lineup. Bryan has been a musician
most of his life and has played with local bay area groups Junk Parlor, The Dustin
Smart Band, Punching Billy, The Decoyz, Emma Lee Project, Dylan Chambers
and the Midnight Transit, The Blackout Cowboys, Staggerwing and LA
based band Kevin Never Talks. Shortly after Bryan was added they
went into the studio to record the EP "A Glimpse of Hope". In 2013 they
followed up their debut EP with an acoustic album called "There's No
Place Like Home" along with a full Pacific Northwest Tour. Since then they've toured the west coast numerous times. In June 2016 the boys embarked on the biggest journey of their lives and toured in Japan. Playing 5 shows in 4 different cities. Now, with an ever growing catalog of originally written music as well as a few select covers and infused with the diversity of prior projects, the Restless Sons are eager to play new markets and break new ground.
