The band CADENCE KINGS hails from the south end of Brooklyn, NY – home of boardwalks, minor league baseball and trained attack seagulls. With their driven sound and tight musicianship, they are a powerful new voice in hard rock.
Currently, the group is recording their debut EP and touring the New York metro area to support the eventual release of the album (which is expected to be available late summer/early fall 2013). Prior to this, CADENCE KINGS has rocked the stage at such venues as Webster Hall, The Bitter End, Arlene’s Grocery and Sullivan Hall.
CADENCE KINGS formed in late 2011, a collaborative effort of George Dikeakos (vocals, guitar), Jared Baum (bass, vocals), and Erik Montalvo (drums). Originally conceived as an eclectic rock group with each song touching upon a different musical style, gradually it all evolved and began to blend into something much more unified. The addition of Aleksandr Razran (lead guitar) in early 2013 helped to truly lock in the sound with melodic intensity.
Each member of the band has a very unique personal as well as musical background. Yet, all are tied together by being raised in Brooklyn with a common passion for music. The diversity of such styles as acoustic rock, heavy metal, jazz/funk fusion and alternative come together through an all-in writing process which gives voice to each influence at its very best.
