Los Angeles, CA
The Peach Kings are the rock noir duo of Paige Wood and Steven Dies, whose songs capture a certain gritty nostalgia that combine a vintage sensibility with modern storytelling. With a raw sound and raucous stage presence, the curated vibe is a nod to classic cult movies and directors like Lynch, Tarantino, and Andersen. Embodying something unmistakably retro, their inspiration includes PJ Harvey, Nancy Sinatra, The Cramps, Lou Reed, Lee Hazelwood, and Portishead, adding their own undercurrent of sultry fuzz through every last note.
The Peach Kings are darlings of the Los Angeles indie rock music scene, headlining at the hippest venues L.A. has to offer, such as the Bootleg, the Echo, Satellite, School Night at Bardot, Hotel Cafe, and the Roxy. Their celebrated and mostly independent EPs found traction on radio, online and on television, with placement on HBO series Boardwalk Empire and Shameless, as well as other series and movies. The band was hand-picked by Drew Barrymore for a V Magazine playlist and photoshoot amongst the likes of Warpaint, Mayer Hawthorne, The Drums, and Mac Miller. Visually, The Peach Kings have also garnered acclaim for their music videos, earning multiple Vimeo Staff Picks and hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube and Vimeo.
In 2016 alone, they have completed two national headlining tours, as well as providing direct support for The Heavy for a US west coast run, and Cyndi Lauper on her national tour in promo of her new album, "Detour."
