The Peach Kings are my little love couple, and I adore the romance of a man and woman who make music together.
— Drew Barrymore
The Peach Kings’ brand of Americana noir gets headier with every EP, and if there isn’t a brand of liquor called ‘Mojo Thunder’ yet, somebody better get distilling.

The Peach Kings is the rock noir brain-child of Paige Wood and Steven Dies, whose sexy and infectious songs are the soundtrack for their intimate love story. With a raw vibe and raucous stage presence, the curated vibe is a nod to classic cult movies and directors like Lynch, Tarantino, and Andersen. Embodying something unmistakably vintage, their inspiration includes, but is not limited to, PJ Harvey, Nancy Sinatra, The Cramps, Lou Reed, Lee Hazelwood, and Portishead, adding their own undercurrent of sultry fuzz through every last note.

The Peach Kings are known in the Los Angeles indie music scene, headlining at infamous venues such as the Bootleg, Echo, Satellite, School Night at Bardot, Hotel Cafe, and the Roxy. Their celebrated and mostly independent EPs found traction on radio, online and on television, with placement on HBO series Boardwalk Empire and Shameless, as well as other series and movies. The band was hand-picked by Drew Barrymore for a V Magazine playlist amongst the likes of Warpaint, Mayer Hawthorne, The Drums, and Mac Miller. Visually, The Peach Kings have also garnered acclaim for their music videos, earning multiple Vimeo Staff Picks and hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube and Vimeo. 

Within the past year, they have completed a national headlining tour, and are soon to hit the road with The Heavy for a US west coast run, and Cyndi Lauper on her national tour in promo of her new album, "Detour."
