Summer Time and the Livings’ Easy

Sorry for the lack of posts here, but we’ve made it through the winter being cooped up and writing tons of new tunes.

And, once again, there are some killer festivals to be played this summer. We’ve already kicked off the Saskatchewan Roughrider’s training camp, next weekend we’re doing a great fundraiser with Kim Coates (Tig!!) for Creative Kids Saskatchewan at the Capitol in Saskatoon, and then we’re all over the country this summer. Show dates are always posted in the “Tour” section, so you can keep track of us there. See you all very soon, and we’ll have a couple new numbers for you to check out soon!


Love: OBS

Welcome to 2014

Happy New Year everyone!

2013 was a great year, a year of milestones really. We got to criss-cross this big ass country SEVERAL times, played with tons of really great bands and met SOOOOO many deadly people along the way.

Thanks for making 2013 what it was people (said in a wailing Paul Stanley voice)!!

Always looking to the future, lets keep it rolling into 2014 with some new music, more shows and meeting more fine folks!

Best wishes to you and your loved ones from OBS!

PS: Here’s a pic from the stage at out final show of 2013 in Saskatoon. What a way to finish of the year!



A bit of a CMW Recap ft. T-MAK World

Finally got some time today to unwind after a busy week at CMW and a prompt return to the “grind” back in BC.

Toronto has always been an exciting city for us. We have been fortunate enough to take several trips out east and every time we are welcomed very graciously by music fans and music lovers. More than anything, Toronto simply embraces music, especially live music.

For OBS, this was made especially apparent by our close friend Terry Makedon and the whole crew at T-MAK World. Terry and his crew spend a great deal of time promoting this vibrant TO music scene. They work incessantly to provide detailed reviews, descriptions and insight into the happenings of music in Toronto. It’s people like Terry, John, Steve, and Karen that create a “scene” where music, art and culture are revered and made important.

Thank you to T-MAK, everyone who we got to spend time with, and all of our friends new and old in Toronto. We will surely be back soon!


Here is some coverage T-MAK gave OBS:

Wednesday @ The Underground Garage:

Thursday @ the Hard Rock Cafe (includes footage of entire show):

Thursday @ The Hideout:

Top 5 and video out today…pinch me, is this for real?

What a day it has been. It began rainy and dreary here in Vancouver, but our spirits were quickly lifted by great news!

Firstly, “Scarecrows” went Top 5 across the nation!

SECONDLY: The official “Scarecrows” video was literally just released on YouTube/Vevo:

Check it out!!!! We’re so thankful and so proud of this! We hope you all enjoy!

Lots of love from OBS today!

The Summer of the Son

A quick Seinfeld reference for all you George Costanza enthusiasts.

But anyways, Granny here. As you can see, we have officially launched the brand new One Bad Son website. It comes equipped with all the latest and greatest technologies and will keep you updated and inundated with all your OBS info. We cannot take credit for all this online handy-work, it was designed and created by our new friend Michael Johnston of MykillinK Studios.

OBS Update:

The summer is shaping up to be a dandy and the four of us are beyond excited to share it with all of you. The summer started with a bang as “Rustbucket,” the first single off of the new album was released on June 4th (if you haven’t got your copy, that needs to change June has been action packed with a bit of a B.C tour including stops on the Island and Kelowna and will end with a trip back to the motherland! We’ll be in and around Sask for the majority of July which will be bitchin!

August is shaping up to be great as well and then, how could we forget, that the album will drop in late August/early September to conclude “The Summer of the Son”.

So stay glued to the site for everything OBS. We will be posting about tour dates, songs, album details, and everything else under the SON.
