Brothers Darren and Sean O'Brien grew up in Calistoga, Ca. They have been playing music with lifelong friend Neil Thollander for 10+ years as the local punk band 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, God's Oddities, and have done US tours with Santa Cruz's Dun Bin Had.
In addition to participating in multiple of the previously mentioned bands, Darren O'Brien has also been playing solo acoustic shows in the Sonoma/Napa county areas for several years. 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 to the permanent lineup. A Washington state native, Bryan has been a musician most of his life and has played with Sonoma/Marin County local groups The Dustin Smart Band, Punching Billy, The Decoyz, Emma Lee Project, Dylan Chambers and the Midnight Transit, The Blackout Cowboys, BewareDoll, 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. As of April 2014 the band's second album "There's No Place Like Home", an acoustic EP was completed with a Pacific Northwest tour to support it. This band is eager to play, break new ground and make a name for themselves. [+]
