22 Kings / Press

"...We are stoked to announce that 22 Kings have released their new single “Bringing Me To Life” exclusively through GigTown. Not only is this song amazing, but Sandi King and Sam Bybee are pretty much the best. These guys are nothing but positive vibes and good times, just like their motto – “Sing, Laugh, Love, Repeat.” We couldn’t be happier to have them as part of the GigTown fam and are so excited to help them share this song with the world!..."

“There is something about two people harmonizing perfectly that really brings a tear to the eye. While listening to Sam Bybee and Sandi King sing together live, expect waterfalls. Longtime friends and music lovers, Bybee and King join in an acoustic setting complete with a kick drum and a tambourine. With the look and style of band members you may see at a heavy metal show, 22 Kings’ musical style is contradictory, with soft melodies, engaging choruses and hooks that keep you listening for more. These are two of the hardest working acoustic musicians in town and if they are not on the road, you can catch them locally at Lestat’s, Hooleys, Sycamore Den and up in Fallbrook at Pala Mesa Resort.”

"This is something we do called Write A Tune Tuesday. We bring an act in they've got an hour to write a brand new song, or in this case 5 minutes, and today's topic is Fat Tuesday. This is 22 Kings lets hear it..."

“Among the busiest bands, Americana/folk rock duo 22 Kings usually has around two dozen upcoming shows listed, taking place at venues from Santee to La Mesa, Rancho San Diego, Temecula, and Fallbrook.”

“The band 22 Kings appeared on our show with Mr. C and they absolutely crushed it with an in studio performance of their song Out to Sea to close out the evening. The duo have been friends for years and before their appearance discussed their close friendship (no they aren’t dating), the meaning behind their band name, and their recent decision to give away their music for free! That’s right, you can download their album at no cost via their website. They are an absolute treasure to listen to and you won’t want to miss out on their performance at the end of our show!”

“You two are very pleasant on the eyes, a guy and girl acoustic duo. As a fanboy of the band, I really get excited when you do your harmonies. It just blows my mind. My eyes water and I get emotional; I think it's a natural human reaction when hearing others harmonize.”

“22 Kings are onstage. They are the duo of Sandi King and Sam Bybee. They layer rich harmonies together as if the two of them were frosting cupcakes. When they back into a dreamy version of “Ain’t No Sunshine,” it heats up as they go and by the time they near the end they have taken it all the way to the altar of boy-band harmony. King has a vibrant neck tat that peeks from under her coat collar whenever she moves. “We’re leaving on a three-month national tour tomorrow. We thought we’d stop by and have one last hurrah.” 22 Kings has a CD for sale.”

“Sam & Sandi of the 22 Kings come on the "Music Matters" Show to share their music which walks a fine line between Folk, Americana, and Indie Rock. We get to hear an organic sound which communicates raw emotion balanced with angelic harmonies and uncanny, sometimes mysterious, resonance that will win over even the toughest critics. During this in-depth interview we discover how their friendship of over 15 years has morphed into one of the most exciting times in both Sam and Sandi's lives. The hardships, life crises, tears and laughter have brought them even closer together.”

““Sandi’s talent lies in her ability to be very gutsy and down home sounding with her powerful killer harmonies and solos that come off sweet but very down and dirty. Welcome to the family!””

“On 03/15/13 22 Kings performed at Room 5 Lounge located in Los Angeles Calif. The setting was warm and intimate which was an interpersonal musical night. The venue was available to having your favorite artist up close and personal, just like the 22 Kings. They had another amazing on stage live performance. If you didn't get a chance to see them last Friday please check them out this Friday at Skinny's in NOHO.”

“Paulo Coelho said, “When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.” That is Sam and Sandi from 22 Kings who are in love with music, and on stage that is visible. On 02/21/13 Start Over News got to interview 22 Kings. About their music... Sam has this aching velvet voice that can sway the most harden hearts, accompany with Sandi angelic soulful vocals that gives the feeling of nostalgia to their own original songs.”
