Austin's Sons of Fathers is the brainchild of David Beck and Paul Cauthen, two guys who were born and raised all over Texas in musical families. After meeting at a park in San Marcos, the duo christened themselves Beck and Cauthen only to have representatives from Beck Hansen send them a cease and desist letter.
After changing their name to Sons of Fathers, the duo (now augmented with several sidemen) began to attract the attention of folks in and out of Austin. Soon, the band was in the studio with producer Lloyd Maines and Beck and Cauthen have been running on all cylinders ever since. From their studio in North Austin and in anticipation of Friday's show at the Granada, Beck and Cauthen talked with DC9 about making a new album and drinking with family in Dallas.
