The Kings' Bio
THE PEACH KINGS (Los Angeles, CA) are Texas-born Paige Wood and Silver Lake, Los Angeles native Steven Dies.
Stripped down, THE PEACH KINGS sound rests on the playful exchange of dynamic vocals and riff-heavy guitar. What they end up with is a mixture somewhere between Portishead and Led Zeppelin, The Kills and Nancy Sinatra, The Cramps and Roy Orbison. Comparisons and influences aside, THE PEACH KINGS arrive at a sound that is wholly their own; music that is modern, yet timeless.
The band's newest EP, Mojo Thunder, comes out June 3rd, 2014.
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 itself in the Los Angeles indie rock scene, scoring major radio play and multiple "Today's Top Tune" honors on LA stations 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 for the 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.
