Sons of Sylvia - History


Brothers Adam, Ashley, Austin, Aaron, Andrew and Alan Clark, natives of Rocky Mount, Virginia, founded a family band in the late 1990s called The Clark Family Experience. The band recorded one album for Curb Records in 2002 and charted in the Top 20 on the Billboard country singles charts with "Meanwhile Back at the Ranch." The Clark Family Experience disbanded in 2002 after filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

In 2007, Adam, Ashley and Austin began playing as The Clark Brothers. Under this name, the trio won the top prize in the Fox Networks talent competition The Next Great American Band, and subsequently signed to 19 Recordings. The band renamed itself Sons of Sylvia in October 2009.

Sons of Sylvia appeared on the song "What Can I Say" on Carrie Underwood's third album, Play On. The band had a connection with Underwood through Ashley, who toured with Carrie as her fiddle player from 2005-2009. The band performed "What Can I Say" with Carrie Underwood on December 7, 2009, on Carrie Underwood: An All Star Holiday Special. Sons of Sylvia also joined Carrie on her 2010 "Play On Tour". The band performed their debut single, "Love Left to Lose," on the April 28, 2010 results show episode of American Idol and were introduced by Carrie Underwood.

The group are cousins to Ryan Tedder, lead singer for OneRepublic, who co-wrote and produced the group's debut single, "Love Left to Lose". The album's second single, "I'll Know You", was released to radio in late 2010 but did not chart. In February 2012 Sons Of Sylvia were dropped from Interscope Records.

Famous quotes containing the word history:

    History is the present. That’s why every generation writes it anew. But what most people think of as history is its end product, myth.
    —E.L. (Edgar Lawrence)

    Considered in its entirety, psychoanalysis won’t do. It’s an end product, moreover, like a dinosaur or a zeppelin; no better theory can ever be erected on its ruins, which will remain for ever one of the saddest and strangest of all landmarks in the history of twentieth-century thought.
    Peter B. Medawar (1915–1987)

    Look through the whole history of countries professing the Romish religion, and you will uniformly find the leaven of this besetting and accursed principle of action—that the end will sanction any means.
    Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772–1834)
