Listen To 7Descent Cover Soul Classic – “Ooh Child”

Nashville rockers 7Descent spent last fall dropping a bunch of killer singles, one of which we shared here at Ghost Cult. The band has returned with a rock cover of soul classic “Ooh Child” – made famous by The Five Stairsteps. Putting a rock spin on an old-school classic 7Descent updates this gem of songcraft history in their own special way. Adding a more personal note, the cover was inspired by the tragic passing of guitarist and founding member Ed Taylor’s parents to Covid 19 less than 24 hrs apart in March of 2021.

About 7Descent:

November of 2019 in Nashville, TN was the birth of the Rock ‘n’ Roll group 7Descent. There were 2 members including guitarist Ed Taylor and Ishmael Herring (a.k.a. Milo) as lead vocalist that got the idea to bring the band together. Fast forward to 2020 when 2 more members, Andrew Cremmins(drums) and Brian Coffey(bass joined the band, completing 7Descent. All of the band members were brought together by the great power of Craigslist.


Some of their songs prove to be more hard rock than others, showing listeners the diversity that they have and take into consideration with every song that is written. For example, “Mad Emperor” is more of a poem that is spoken within the melody while “Beverly” is a song written about a girl and a guy with a little more of a pop feel.


The band’s overall inspirations range anywhere from classic/indie rock, all the way to Hip-Hop. Bands such as the Ramones, Judas Priest, and Green Day are all said to have played roles in the influence of 7Descent. It is confirmed that each member of the band has something special about them that they have brought to the band in order to make the full 7Descent experience what it is today. With the goal set to inspire others with the sound of a punk band, they certainly show their uniqueness with every song!
