Carving out honest melodies but not without a curl of smirk in his lyrics, Sonny's both the wised elder sage imparting half a lifetime of wisdom and the constantly compelling student of life.

Two Gallants

Ever since 2002 when Adam Stephens (guitar/vocals/harmonica) and Tyson Vogel (drums/vocals) began making noise at house parties and on street corners they've slowly been carving out their own creative space. In a world where bigger is often considered better and quality is sacrificed with ease, Two Gallants have risen against the tide with their cathartic, stripped-down sound and depth of material to forge an intimate bond with a wide array of fans.
