After years of working off and on with each other on various projects, singer/songwriter Eddie Veliz, bassist Tony Castaneda, and drummer Pepe Clarke Magaña decided to create a band that would fulfill their musical desires. Hailing from LA and parts of Mexico, the Los Angeles-based trio is as unique in spirit as their sound.
At times reminiscent of late 70's hard rock and metal with a presentation that is simultaneously heavy, classic and modern, KYNG's approach is best described as "California Heavy". Eddie Veliz's vocals are reminiscent of Chris Cornell in his early days, Pepe Clarke Magaña brings the thunder on the drums, and bassist Tony Castañeda provides rolling rhythms that tie it all together. With that kind of synergy, KYNG is destined for great things. Their continued evolution will undoubtedly blaze a trail that redefines what is expected and defines the giants they will become.
