The Story

'Kingsdown' is the evolutionary brainchild of six small-town friends sharing a heart for people and music. In late 2002, a century old Arkansas train station became their experimental base where various styles and sounds were rigorously tested. Small crowds soon grew into a packed house, and 'The Depot' became a place where lifelong friendships were born, joy was rampant, and people were impacted for the better.

Following the first EP in May 2004, this project hit the road for the first time to cover some 30+ states while promoting 'Dearest Nameless', meanwhile garnering a top 20 chart position in July of that year. By 2005 'The Scenario We Know So Well' released to increased enthusiasm, as the group continued touring the United States and expanding their fan base world-wide through various online venues.

For its latest incarnation, the band mixes cues from the glory days of rock-n-roll with their own distinct sound and style to create a new breed of energetic and lively songs that are just as much at home in a backyard party as in a sold out arena. The live show is an energy packed production drawing crowds to experience life in a refreshing and exciting way. Catchy vocals, solid rhythm, and soaring leads are laced with piano and a variety of other electronic sounds. Lyrics are born from the perspective of a love for God, life, travels, and people. 'A large part of our inspiration comes from great times had with friends ... and many beautiful mornings, days, and nights spent with people we love. That is a side of God people forget to talk about.' says lead singer Dwain Roark (Abbey). Roark says he gets a significant amount of inspiration from traveling the United States, England, France, Spain, Italy, Scotland, Canada, as well as trips to the Pacific Northwest and India he took with guitarist, James Watts. 'If people do not leave one of our shows feeling that they are loved, and that there is much more to life, work, trying to get by, and typical worries then we have not fulfilled our duty to them.' note other members.

With a solidly expanding domestic base, as well as notable exposure in several overseas markets, this dream turned reality has made an enduring impression for its short history. With a keen knack for making their own way, members expect more singles, larger tours, and increased reach for their message.
