Get To Know.

Combine the heavy emotion of the blues, the tone and raw power of hard rock, the finesse of soul and a twist of 60's psychedelia. It will give you a visceral musical experience that plays directly to your being. That such experience would be CHILD. Living for their art, the pubs, the booze, the endless highways and the blues is what makes this band who they are. Child are a must see for those who are worshippers at “the electric church”. The freedom and power of a live performance is important to CHILD in their approach to music, endeavouring to never perform the same way twice. They look forward to once again bringing this to the world on their continued search for sonic paradise.


Since the release of their runaway self-titled debut in 2014, Child have continued to develop their unique brand of heavy blues through constant writing and extensive national/international touring. The band released the follow-up ‘Blueside’ in December 2016, which builds on this foundation to deliver a disc of pure sonic expression whilst following in the long tradition of the blues. 2018 saw the release of Child's first EP, simply titled 'I'. Recorded live to tape, 'I' is a glimpse into the boundless directions that could be taken on upcoming releases.

“I” 

Released 14/03/2018

“I have referred to Child as “an inspiration” and “one of the best blues bands ever”. This latest EP solidifies those lofty accolades and firmly places Child among the pantheon [of] the greatest power trios of the modern era”.
Pat Harrington Electric Beard of Doom

Blueside

Released 01/12/2016

“For a band who draw so much on the blues, it would be easy to get sidetracked into genre tropes and to lose individual identity for the sake of executing a cookie-cutter sonic idea. Child avoid this with a fluidity that is their own and so come out of their second offering with even more momentum than they went into it. An important step, and one they inarguably take in a commanding forward direction.”
JJ Koczan The Obelisk

Child

Released 19/02/2014

“Don't know how many times I've said it before but surprises like Child's self-titled debut is something I want more of. It brings life to music and shakes my world around, making it fresh again. And it's so rewarding to hear bands that can actually make new music out of old styles in an era when most bands and artists goes for the safe route, i.e. fodder stuff or muzak.”
Håkan Nyman The Sludgelord
