Biography

With the recent release of their debut album, "Rewind", Playground Legends are becoming a major force in the Arizona modern rock scene. Featuring an upbeat, hard-hitting style combining the classic styles of Soundgarden, Collective Soul and Alice in Chains with the modern edge of Foo Fighters and Incubus they have quickly risen from the bars of Tempe to showcase the best venues the valley has to offer.

Playing with local legends Fred Green and hot up-and-coming groups Radiofix and Highwire Fiction, they are packing venues like Martini Ranch, The Loft, Last Exit and Cooperstown. They are a favorite of the AZoverload radio show, and have been featured in the Arizona State Press and Phoenix New Times. Their debut album sold 300 copies in the first week, and their loyal following already numbers in the hundreds.

The Legends officially formed in 2006 with guitarists Jimmy Hong and J.P. Coughlin, drummer Grant Allen and bassist Jesse Frazier. The group had a breakout with the addition of singer/songwriter Kevin Wilson in March 2007, and has been on the rise ever since.

The band plans to continue a strong promotional tour, with interviews planned for KWSS 106.7FM, Radio69 and a feature on NBC Arizona Midday. Currently the band is looking for distribution channels for the album, and expanding its sphere of influence to San Diego, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas.

It is an exciting time for the Legends and their fans, with the album release and their biggest shows ever on the calendar. With an explosive new beginning and solid plans for the future, the group is looking to have a breakout Spring 2008 and work towards expanding their regional influence this Summer.
