Kingsfall Now On Talentcast

“Kingsfall is the kind of good that should have record

labels fighting over them; the kind of good that took Switch-foot from being a popular band in San Diego to a household name all over the world.” Kim Jones,, October 2008

When Larry Leicht (bass), Devin Dean (guitars/vocals), Daniel Lopez (drums), and Joshua Dufrene (guitars/vocals) came together in 2006 to form Kingsfall they all had one thing in common. They had all grown up in or around music for most of their lives. And it soon became clear that they all had a common vision of taking their unique sound to the masses.

“We want to share positive moral values and ethics, impacting

peoples lives and challenging their minds” lead singer Josh Dufrene says.

“It’s important to us that we use our talents to spread a message of positive re-inforcement and shed some light that there is hope to people in today’s climate of brokenness”, adds drummer

Daniel Lopez.

And sharing what people need from the stage or the studio is what these guys do best. They spread a message of hope with tenacity and aggressiveness. Their self titled debut CD is receiving airplay and rave reviews from industry leaders, critics, manufacturer’s and fans alike.

Based in Dallas, this exciting and energetic band with their own distinct sound has been compared to Mutemath, Coldplay,Third Eye Blind and Switchfoot, who they opened up for this past year at Baylor University. Other national acts that they have shared the stage with are The Afters, Sugarcult, and Love-drug.

Add to that dozens of other shows including a international appear-ance in Mexico City. Kingsfall was also featured on the nationally televised show ‘Soundcheck’, this past October.

The band has picked up endorsement deals with The Ernie Ball Company, Paiste Cymbals, and a major drum manufacturer to be

announced soon.

Without a doubt Kingsfall is one of the hottest emerging acts today as they continue their rise towards stardom.

Can Hip-Hop Be Saved ?

Is The East Coast Dead ? Nah, The East Coast Just Lost The Key To The Game And I Finally Found It ! This Statement Is Hardly BELIEVABLE Considering The East Coasts' Presence In Hip-Hop Being Almost Non-Existent Above Ground Lately. This Statement Is Even More UNBELIEVABLE Once You Realize An Unsigned Artist From New Haven, Connecticut Made The Claim. Similiar Statements Have Been Made By Ex East Coast Frontrunners, Only To Have You Using Their Cd Cases As Your Weed Plate. So When This Unsigned Artsit From New Haven, Connecticut Proudly Explains How He Replaced The Late Great "Old Dirty Bastard" {Before A Packed Crowd} For What Would've Been ODB's Last CT Performance, And Not One Person In Attendance Asked To Be Refunded The $25 Ticket Fee. Or, How He Is Setting The Bar For CT Hip-Hop. Or Even When He Go's As Far As To Say He's CT's Hottest Unsigned Artist PERIOD, You Just Refuse To BELIEVE He Could Be This GOOD !

Press The Play Button ..............

Now You Phil {pronounced Feel} Blount !!!!

On our 2nd day we we're contacted by "Missy" from talentcast saying she liked our songs and that she wanted to play our songs on the radio!!

Not Bad for 2 days!!

I'm getting some very good vibes from this whole thing!

The biggest festival of the year here and australia is called the Big Day Out and Auckland?s BFM is holding a competition for a band to play there? this would be a wicked opportunity!! The voting will short list it to 4 bands and then BDO choses the winner.

Find WAITAHA in the list of songs entered and click vote. You don?t have to give any info, just click vote and your done! The coolest part is you can see exactly where the song is at in the rankings! Not sure if you can vote more than once but I will get back to you on that.
