Son of Ian – Good Morning September

For starters, I haven’t heard a CD that I have listened to multiple times over and over and over again or not even been able to get through the whole album because I keep playing the first few songs multiple times since way back when I listened to Pearl Jam Ten in August of 1991 for the first time. For all the PJ haters, they are my absolute favorite band and always will be. However, I have a new close second, Son of Ian which is headed by Trenton McKean who is THE real deal! I absolutely love the sound, vibe, and entire album. I have not heard such a marriage of the saxophone with a band that sounded so harmoniously perfect since Clarence Clemens AKA The Big Man and Springsteen were united. I also have to admit that I subscribed in the 80’s to Backstreet magazine, the Bruce Springsteen fanzine, which explains two things: how much of a music nerd I was and the love of the soulful piercing backdrop of a saxophone into any song. That is why I have fallen for my new love of the infusion of Dave “Bishop” Oster with Trenton McKean (which is Scottish for Ian). Since Clarence Clemons’ passing, no one has been able to hold a torch until now.

The opportunity to talk with Trenton personally arose and I have to say; he is as cool in person as his band persona. I’m a true fan. He laughed when I informed him of two things: 1. Trenton is white 2. Trenton has orgasm eyes when he sings. Actually, both of us laughed at those things! He assured me that I wasn’t the first to point out the obvious. However, he is so passionate about his music and getting his message across that he truly gets into every song emotionally and belts out his guttural sound with all he has which sometimes it leads to him digging deep inside to get it all out which in turn rolls the eyes back and sets him into a world of his own. Well Trenton, you are not alone….you set us all off into that world with your efforts! Funny thing with Trenton is that the very first time I put the CD in to the player I joked “hey~it’s John Mayer with talent” but later took it back because it was so unfair to even make that comparison! Son of Ian is destined to be the next best thing! I don’t want to sound like “yer bum’s oot the windae!” rather, “lang may yer lum reek”. In essence, I’m not blowing smoke and live long and keep well. The creativity of this band will take it to the top where they belong. Trenton also reassured me of my own passion…if it feels good…it is good. Thanks man…it feels good…I should be the one with the orgasm eyes because it feels that good!

    Imagine my surprise at our Canyons 8AM Thursday morning mountain operations meeting when they announced there was a change in performers and it just happened to be Son Of Ian. Your music carries me away and you've become my favorite band of all time and I've been around through the Beatles, the Stones and even Led. You are one of the tightest bands ever and your tone is mesmerizing. I'll always look forward to your performances. Keep it real. Bob

    My Goodness! Having dinner with my son at Gepettos tonite, and this amazingly talented, handsome man sits up with his guitar and starts to sing, and I am like, Who is this? Absolutely fabulous! I'm thinking this is some spoof, and he is some super famous guy sitting up there singing to us, to see which one of catches on the quickest - Instead I go up on a break, and he is beautiful, kind and humble, and we have a very nice conversation. Cannot believe you're not making millions of dollars for your beautiful voice and talent, and I havn't even heard your whole band! I literally felt Like I had a front seat at a private party to the top male artist of the year! Great job-

    I had the super rad opportunity of going to school with Trenton a couple of years back. When I finally made it out to one of his gigs I was mad at myself for not going earlier! Trenton is a great person who is a great performer! This new album is the bee's knees and I will definitely be purchasing this for myself for Christmas! Keep rocking!

Not to mention they are a bunch of great guys who are extremely talented, easy going and just plain fun to see perform. We could not have asked for a better sound to keep our party going, they are awesome, if you have not seen the play, you need to…………
