The Sound of Growing Up started as an acoustic solo project by singer/songwriter Justin Kao in the spring of 2008. A Boston transplant via Long Island, NY, Kao began playing shows and open mics in the Boston area, building up a network of local friends and musicians. These musicians make up a revolving cast of band members that support The Sound of Growing Up both on stage and in the recording studio. Citing influences from such bands as Bright Eyes, The Good Life and Kevin Devine, the band released their self-titled debut, "The Sound of Growing Up EP" in December, 2008. In less than a year's time, The Sound of Growing Up has brought its brand of insightful Indie-Pop to such major Boston stages as Harpers Ferry, Tommy Doyle's and T.T. the Bear's Place. Going into 2009, The Sound of Growing Up continues to play shows and build its fan base across the country. During the fall, Justin and his friends will be recording their full-length debut, which is set to be released during winter of 2010.
