Defiant Children was originally started by 2 founding and current members; George Simmons and Julian Bonaparte in June of 2011. Originally the band was called “G and J Entertainment”. The band only consisted of George Simmons on drums and Julian Bonaparte on harsh vocals and guitar. The band got off to a slow but sure start until the arrival of lead singer and bass guitarist, Okechi Onyeje. With the addition of Okechi in October of 2011, the band changed the name to “Defiant Children”. After the production of a hand full of songs, Defiant Children went on to playing shows around the Baltimore area. After about a year of song writing and show performances; Defiant Children acquired guitarist Brian Hinkle in October of 2012. With the now more orthodox approach to a band set up, Defiant Children quickly hit the Baltimore Area.
