Kounterfeit Change is comprised of four unique musicians of different musical backgrounds all geared and committed to taking Reggae in California to a higher level. The members are spread out across Santa Clarita, Ventura, and Los Angeles areas. Incorporating elements of both rock and reggae, as well as an arsenal of other musical styles, Kounterfeit Change is bringing the party, positive vibes and the good karma nightly. The majority of the band has been close friends, and playing music together for the better part of their lives.

Kameren Chase Neal (KC) lead singer and front man of Kounterfeit Change has been performing in front of audiences since the age of 8. Kameren’s family played a major role in his love and appreciation of music. Kameren wrote his first song, “Time to Listen”, at the age of 5, and recorded it at 12. He had a love for music, life and culture at an early age.

Kameren first met Michael Carlito, lead guitarist of Kounterfeit Change in Jr. High School. The two made fast friends, and their first musical project together was BIC (brothers in crime). Carlito has been playing guitar for bands since a very young age. In his early high school years he met drummer Tyler Halloran while performing in a punk garage band, Grimace.

Working on a side project involving guitarist Jamie Hoeper, Kameren went out on a limb and asked Jamie (Hoops) to pick up the bass and give it a try. A week later Jamie was on the road as a part of Kounterfeit Change for their San Francisco tour, and the band never looked back.

They recorded their debut self-titled E.P. in Santa Clarita and released it in 2009. The band is currently working on their first full-length album titled On Reserve, set to release mid-summer. Since the drop of the E.P. in ’09, they have been playing and grooving audiences everywhere. Kounterfeit Change has been blessed to share the stage with artists such as Barrington Levy, Iration, SOJA, Dirty Heads, Shwayze feat. Cisqo Adler, Mystic Roots Band, OPM, The Far East Movement, The Knux,The B Foundation, The Supervillains, Tribal Seeds, C-Money and The Players Inc. and many more
