The Kings' Bio
THE PEACH KINGS (Los Angeles, CA) are Texas-born Paige Wood and Silver Lake, Los Angeles native Steven Trezevant Dies.
Formed in San Francisco, the band currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California.
Within days of meeting back in 2010, THE PEACH KINGS had a their name and a growing catalog of songs. A few months later, THE PEACH KINGS, won the first place title as Alternative Apparel's "2010 Unsigned Artist of the Year" after going head to head against four other contenders in a battle of the bands.
Since the victory, the THE PEACH KINGS have self released two EPs (Trip-Wop and Handsome Moves) and established themselves in the Los Angeles indie rock scene, scoring major radio play in LA (KCRW, KPCC, and KCSN), as well as on other national radio stations in Austin, TX, Pittsburgh, PA, and beyond.
In 2011, THE PEACH KINGS were hand selected and photographed by Drew Barrymore for a feature in V Magazine, alongside WARPAINT, THE DRUMS, MAYOR HAWTHORNE, M83, MAC MILLER, and others.
THE PEACH KINGS music has been featured in dozens of TV shows, movies, and commercials. Most recently, "Fisherman" and "Like A Stone" were featured in the last two episodes of SHOtime's Shameless season 4, "Thieves & Kings" was used as the "previously on" theme song for season 4 of HBO's Boardwalk Empire, and AUDI filmed THE PEACH KINGS to be featured in their upcoming digital campaign for the new Audi Connect.
The band has played extensively in the Los Angeles area, with past residencies at The Bootleg Theater, The Satellite, and Harvard & Stone, as well as main headline support at local festivals like Make Music Pasadena in 2012 and 2013 and Sunset Strip Music Fest. Though they have not toured much outside of California, they continue to make fans all around the world, sending vinyls across North America all the way to places like Guam, Brazil, EU and Istanbul.
While THE PEACH KINGS remain unsigned, they continue to create music in their own home as well as through collaborations with companies like MOPHONICS MUSIC & SOUND, PUSHER, and BLUE MICROPHONES.
Stripped down, THE PEACH KINGS sound rests on the dynamic between Paige's classically trained, yet purposefully unorthodox vocals and Steven's tendency toward riff based guitar. What you end up with is a mixture somewhere between Portishead and Led Zeppelin, The Kills and Nancy Sinatra, The Cramps and Roy Orbison. After all is said and done, THE PEACH KINGS arrive at a sound that is wholly their own; music that is modern, yet timeless.
