The Peach Kings
The Peach Kings consist of Texas-born Paige McClain Wood and Silver Lake, Los Angeles native Steven Trezevant Dies. The band currently resides and works in Los Angeles.
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. While certain blues and doo-wop influences are obvious and undeniable, The Peach Kings arrive at a sound that is wholly their own; music that is modern, yet timeless.
The Ten Thousand
"These co-op shows attract 500+ attendees, rivaling the Echo or the Troubadour in size -- and, I'd dare say, often exceed their intensity. For proof, here's the first The Ten Thousand video, filmed partly at one of these shows: City of Angles Music Video"
"Some random guy on the internet has proclaimed The Ten Thousand’s music as reminding him, 'of when anything other than wild was not an option.'...The damn catchy harmonies remind us of a more punk Vampire Weekend mixed with some Neil Young Americana. Wild is seriously right."
-The Owl Mag
"These boys have a style all their own and cleverness with introductions on this specific track. Recognition is no longer an option with these boys, it’s a necessity."
- Music Under Fire
"Sie kommen aus los angeles, sie spielen retro-futuristischen punk-rock, sperrig, ungehobelt, unverschämt eingängig."
Strange Vine's earthy, energetic music is a fusion of blues, psychedelic, and traditional American rock. It's a sound born of California's Sierra Nevada Mountains, from two men who were raised there. Ian Blesse plays drums and Rhodes piano (simultaneously), while Toby Cordova fleshes out the songs with a rotating arsenal of guitars (including one made from a cigar box). Both contribute vocals toward a rich, layered sound that's greater than the sum of its parts.
In just a few year's time, Strange Vine has already shared the stage with acts like The Black Keys, Cage The Elephant, Band Of Skulls, The Growlers, B. B. King, Robin Trower, Matt And Kim, White Denim, Pokey LaFarge, and JEFF The Brotherhood.
