According to the New York Daily News, the band — comprised of guitarist Malcolm Brickhouse, 13; bassist Alec Atkins, 13, and drummer Jarad Dawkins, 12 — was discovered in 2012 in Washington Square Park by Eric Clapton’s drummer, Steve Jordan, and will produce at least two albums for Sony with the potential of four more if the band is commercially successful.
Since the boys are minors, the papers were filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, which promises the middle school trio an advance of $60,000 for their first recording with the potential of a second record netting them an advance up to $350,000.
