The best kept secret in music



"Kingfish challenges the standards of rock music, providing the listener with a unique and interesting experience. Elements of alternative, progressive and even some industrial make their way into the band's repertoire setting them apart from the crowd of Radiohead-types trying so desperately to be "different." Kingfish has this great niche where they can write a song that makes you kind of bob your head and dance a bit, and then place it side by side with a wrist slashing drone fest befitting of pale skinned psychopaths and their exceptionally anxious roommates. If you can make someone smile, and then make them cry, you've absolutely mastered the art of music." -

Feeling a bit camera shy


The promise of Kingfish is far from mere rhetoric. Having established themselves in the North Texas music scene, playing with such bands as Eisley, The Polyphonic Spree, Black Tie Dynasty, and The Afters, this self-written, recorded, produced, and released band could stand to be defined by their reviews alone. Being hailed, in the wake of their 2006 full-length debut album, "Fortune and Inheritance," to have “[challenged] the standards of rock music, providing the listener with a unique and interesting experience” ( with songs that are not only “pensive” but truly “thought provoking” ( The musical talent and reputable influence within Kingfish is undeniable. Sam Smyers’ vocals are beautifully haunting in tracks such as “So We Go” and “Chasing the Seagulls,” their second single which received notable radio play on many collage radio and internet radio stations. Though the only, currently available glimpse of their progress is the single-take recording of “The Quintet” on the bands website, their sophomore album, or possible EP, is due out in late 2007 and promises to be “much fuller.” With the focus shifted to even larger dynamics in the realms of bell work, timbales, cello, flute, and louder, more extensive experimentation with instruments and sampling alike, the future of Kingfish looks anything but dim.
