Biography

Verona Kings are a Banbury based three piece band and their sound is acoustic indie rock on electric. No frills, what you see is definitely what you get. They know who they are and what they want, playing the sort of music you want to hear and delivering it with conviction and passion.

They are original in their rawness, aggression, lyrics and melody. Dark but dreamy, raw but real, honest and heartfelt – Verona Kings will be the new face of Brit Rock. They are making music in a way that needs to be done again and doing something that is missing in the music industry right now. In a time of faceless pop, it’s refreshing to hear a band that is so unique, complex and different from anything else around. Their songs fly in the face of disposable pop culture and their sound is a celebration; a toast to everything we ever believed rock and roll ever could be.

These three young hungry lads are so spirited and so passionate about what they believe in, you cannot help but be drawn to them. You cannot help but fall for their gritty, working class, honest, straight talking, no messing charm. It has been a tale of passion and perseverance but these boys will become proof that it pays off to keep the dream alive and to keep believing. They have recently moved in together so that they can propel Verona Kings to where they want it to be, dreaming of the rags to riches tale of rock and roll along the way. They have unwavering faith in themselves and in their songs and in the dream and so set on getting something they know they want and need and have been working towards for so long. They play and perform like they mean it and draw you in, spellbound and captivated by the melody and the mood. And standing on stage they just look like they’re meant to be there and born to do this.

Live they are breathtakingly vibrant and very very cool. The strength of their live shows is due to their impassioned, energetic performances as you see the sheer audible soul of their songs come to life and realise that it comes from someplace deep. They are truly emphatic. Their music is infectious, their sound soaks to the bone and their songs give off an air of urgency, singing and playing with so much heart you can feel the anxiety in it.

Their sound is instant and compelling; memorable and penetrating. It has the force and the feeling behind it that makes it hypnotic and driving. They have a knack you see for songs that bristle with energy. Epic tunes are flowing from this band as they sculpt songs about triumph and diversity; about having nothing and wanting everything, about being pissed off with the world. They comment on working class reality, dreaming of glory and looking about for their next good kick. Somehow these boys are able to effortlessly document life, providing real songs for real people. These songs are songs for the terraces and will give people something they can recognise and sing along to time and time again.

So this is a band for the people - playing songs that are relevant to us Brits and the working class. They really are marking the well needed return to true Britishness. Take note because their songs will become the definitive sound of our time and will be woven into the tapestry of British culture itself. They really are the true embodiment of what contemporary music should be and really is.
