Young Rising Sons are an American indie pop band consisting of Andy Tongren (lead singer/guitar), Julian Dimagiba (bass), and Steve Patrick (drums) formed in 2010. With the release of their debut single “High”, Young Rising Sons signed with Dirty Canvas/Interscope Records in 2013.[2]

BBC Radio 1 DJ, Zane Lowe named “High” a “Next Hype” track upon its release in the spring of 2014.[3]


2010–2012: Band formation[edit]

Dimagiba and Patrick grew up playing music together in Red Bank, NJ. After watching Andy Tongren perform an acoustic set at a New York City bar, the other members approached him about taking lead vocals in their newly formed band. They wrote music together for several years under different aliases until eventually landing the name Young Rising Sons.

2013–2016: The High and Interscope Signing[edit]

Through mutual friends of Andy Tongren, Young Rising Sons were introduced to New York producers Shep Goodman and Aaron Accetta. After hearing Tongren's soulful voice and witnessing the band's incredible chemistry, they immediately signed Young Rising Sons to a production deal with their label Dirty Canvas Music.[2]

The band then went on to collaborate with Dirty Canvas Shep Goodman and Aaron Accetta as well as long time friends Christian Medice and James Adam Shelley to record new music which ultimately led to their debut single “High”.

The video for “High” premiered on Mostly Junk Food and Buzznet.[4] The response was explosive and quickly went viral hitting #1 on Hypem Twitter and landing on the main music page on YouTube.[3] With the well received buzz, “High” instantly caught the attention of tastemakers across the globe including BBC Radio 1 DJ, Zane Lowe, who dubbed “High” his “Next Hype” track.

The band signed with Interscope Records in 2014. With this, Young Rising Sons released a self-titled four track EP through Dirty Canvas/Interscope Records.[2]

Young Rising Sons spent 2014-2015 touring North America with such artists as Halsey,[5] Weezer, Bleachers, Kongos,[6] The 1975,[7] and The Neighbourhood.[8]

“High” was featured in the NHL Awards, MLB Network, Carson Daly, NBC Summer Image Campaign in 2014.[9] The single was also featured on Fox’s hit television show Red Band Society and ABC’s Selfie in 2014 [10]

On Monday, May 2, 2016, the band officially announced via their social media outlets that Dylan Scott would be leaving the band to pursue other interests.[11]
