Biography

W H O IS 1 K I N G T R A I N ?
A new band that’s here to stay……………Energized and powered by the Song itself, by the feeling it arouses in the listener and in ourselves. This is a shining new sound for modern radio, for the masses! Four members make up 1 King Train: Drew Thomas, Leo Brown, Cam Wilson & Shawn Waddle.

T H E S O U N D E T C . -
THE SOUND IS WHAT WE’D LIKE TO CALL VERY INTIMATE YET UNPREDICTABLY POWERFUL. GREAT BANDS OF THE PAST AND PRESENT LIKE U2, THE ROLLING STONES, CREED, THE SMASHING PUMPKINS, REM, THE CURE, COLDPLAY AND MANY OTHER GREAT BANDS HAVE THAT TENDENCY TO BRING THEIR LISTENER’S INTO THAT PLACE WHERE YOU FEEL LIKE YOUR LIVING THE MUSIC AND YOU JUST FEEL CLOSE TO IT. 1 KING TRAIN WILL TAKE YOU THERE WITH THEIR FRESH AND INSPIRING NEW SOUND ADDING SLABS OF BRIT AND AMERICAN ROOTS ROCK FOR AN INVIGORATING AND FRESH SOUND YET TO BE HEARD IN MAINSTREAM MODERN MUSIC. A SOUND NOT FOR ONE SEGEMENT OF ROCK BUT FOR THE MASSES!

INFLUENCES INCLUDE THE AFOREMENTIONED BANDS BUT LENDS ITSELF TOWARDS BANDS THAT ARE BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN MODERN ROCK AND MODERN POP LIKE LIFEHOUSE, JIMMY EAT WORLD, CREED, THREE DOORS DOWN, P.O.D., FUEL, COLDPLAY, DAVID GREY, VERTICAL HORIZON, ETC. WITH A RAWNESS AND FERVOR THAT MAY REMIND YOU OF EARLY U2, EARLY REM, MAYBE THE ROLLING STONES YET LEANING TOWARDS A MODERN RADIO SOUND….

AS A NEW ERA APPROACHES, 1 KING TRAIN SEES A CLEAR PATH TO BE AT THE FOREFRONT OF MODERN MUSIC COLLECTIVELY DRIVING TO BRING INSPIRING MELODIES AND SOMETHING COOL TO THE MASSES. IF YOU LIKE THE DEMO FROM OUR “NEW SHINY RADIO” CD…..WAIT TIL’ YOU HEAR THE NEW STUFF!

WATCH FOR OUR VENUES OF SHOW, ENJOY THE CD, AND LOOK FOR A MAJOR LABEL RELEASE FROM 1 KING TRAIN FORTHWITH.
