With a combination of dynamic instrumentation, cathartic lyrics, and fierce live shows, The Fallen One has taken the DC music scene by storm. Over the years, The Fallen One has been influenced by bands including Hum, At the Drive In, PJ Harvey, The Smashing Pumpkins, Failure, Rainer Maria, Dredg, The Appleseed Cast, and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

The Fallen One brings textured, lush guitar melodies in combination with a thick, aggressive, distorted sound, powerful vocals, and a driving rhythm section.

The Fallen One began in November of 2002. Since a permanent bass player did not seem to work for The Fallen One, they realized their sound was just as powerful as a three piece, featuring two guitars and drums.

The Fallen One has played several venues, in DC including The Black Cat, DC Nine, and the Velvet Lounge in Washington, DC. The trio has also played at The Ottobar, Sonar, The Side Bar and Charm City Art Space in Baltimore, and numerous venues in Virginia such as Dr. Dremos and The Laughing Lizard. The band has played all along the east cost at such clubs as The Continental and The C-note in New York. The Fallen One has played the South by Southwest Festival in Austin, TX. The Fallen One has also done its share of benefits and festivals such as the Arlington Music Scene, the D.C. Arts Festival, Art-O-Matic, and the Millennium Music Conference.

The Fallen One has shared the stage with many talented bands including: Jucifer, The Appleseed Cast, Aloha, Victory at Sea, Kudzu Wish,Wheatus, Sara Bettens of K's Choice, Wakefield, The Alphabetical Order, Koshari, Alcian Blue, The Chance, Kill Ketura, Cinemechanica, and Run Silent Run Deep among others.
