Sons of Origin
An emerging and exciting new group, Sons of Origin is an alternative rock band based out of New York City. Led by brothers Anthony & Steven Babino, the inception of the group dates back to the spring of 2009, when Anthony put together a band to support his first solo album, “Desolate Town”. Since then, the band (with varying line-ups) has been performing around the Tri-State area, garnering great reviews for their live act at such local hotspots as The Bitter End, the Bowery Electric, Wicked Willy’s, The Wonderbar, The Headliner, Langosta Lounge, and Rella’s Tavern, among others. In a review of one of their shows at New York’s historic rock club The Bitter End, Ellen Woloshin (Music Connection Magazine) described their performance as “first-rate professional” with “songs that are catchy, energetic and attention grabbing.
”A favorite of the Jersey Shore hit radio stations 94.3FM “The Point”, and 105.7FM “The Hawk”, the "Sons" have played at several of their events, including the 2009 “Pointsettia Bash” at the Headliner in Asbury Park, where they opened for New Jersey’s top cover band “The NERDS”. Programming Director and Morning DJ Lou Russo called Anthony, “One of the best young vocalist & song writing talents I’ve come across in a very, very long time…his music and voice are filled with passion”.
Stylistically, their music ranges from acoustic-driven pop to hard rock, creating a dynamic blend of genres, with songs notable for their stellar harmony vocals and melodicism. In December of 2011, their new, unreleased song “Morning In New York” was featured numerous times on NBC television in NYC, to promote their year end montage of “The Today Show”. The group will release their self-titled debut album Fall 2013.
