"Band to watch in Los Angeles! Smoky Knights"

Every once in awhile, a band walks onto the Los Angeles music scene with a fun, funky and new vibe that deserves some serious attention. The Smoky Knights are that band. - AOL Entertainment


"Smoky Knights, Honest Thieves, Rock DTLA’s 5 Star Bar"

DOWNTOWN LA — There are few times when we are as impressed as we were at 5 Star Bar in downtown LA last weekend.

The 5 Star Bar makes it a new experience to meet cool people of all ages, listen to fun music and enjoy a beer in a can.

The lineup for the first annual Psych Fest, also known as Mind Gasm, included The Smoky Knights, Them Guns, The Honest Thieves and Camcorder. See video for The Honest Thieves here.

Downtown LA has come a long way, while some say it has a long way to go.

But in the meantime, fun bars like this will hold the attention of a diverse group of pool-players, up-and-coming rock stars, aspiring artists and everyone in between.

California Rocker thinks 5 Star Bar lives up to its name. Worth checking out. - California Rocker


"Track of the day"

Blending dulcet harmonies with an infectious smattering of alternative goodness, Smoky Knights may still feel a little on the raw side but these choruses offer up bags of potential.

“Sooner or Later” is the title track taken from their third EP, blending infectious guitar riffs and subtle pop hooks with an intriguing air of indie-rock. The band’s latest offering serves up something a little unique, with a bridge that’s sure to catch your attention (well, it did ours).

The EP itself was mixed by Nicolas Essig, who is well known for his credits with Paul McCartney, Coldplay, Kings of Leon, and more – which stands them in good stead really, doesn’t it?

Comprised of Adam Brooks, Andy Fischer-Price, Seth Sylvester and Jesse Cross, this LA quartet are cooking up something delicious. Check out the video below and as always, let us know your thoughts! - One Stop Record Shop

Bio

Smoky Knights are an indie rock quartet based out of LA. Their music is a colorful wash of tight vocal harmonies with heaps of 60s/70s rock and soul.  

Formed in 2013, Smoky Knights have been fixtures in the LA music scene, filling venues all over town while touring up and down the west coast.  In late 2016 they won a “battle of the bands” contest that earned the group $15,000. This led to the launch of their third EP, Sooner or Later, in 2017. The title track, “Sooner or Later”, has been added to multiple Spotify playlists and has received radio play in LA.Currently the band is working on their debut full length LP and maintaining a rigorous schedule of gigs, tours and local residencies at multiple venues. 

Their live show brings a blend of stellar musicianship, mesmerizing projected visuals and instantly appealing songs that make the crowd dance into the night. 

Smoky Knights can play original and/or cover songs from 30min to 4hr sets.
