Sons Of Vanity was founded in 2016, as a continuation of previous projects by founders Stian, Åsmund and Arild.

During 2016 the band saw their song "Girl Next Door" go all the way to the finals at the International Songwriting Competition.

This motivated the band to drop an EP, "Favourite Sin" in late 2016, and on to drop a full album, "Twister" in 2017.

After winning the battle of the bands at Northern Europes biggest country music festival in 2017, the band is now touring Western Norway and playing at several Country Music festivals in Norway summer 2019.

The music is a blend of various influences like country rock, southern rock and traditional country, all infused with a Norwegian twist.
