The Kingston Springs
Releasing their debut highly recognized EP in 2010, The Kingston Springs have performed at Starry Nights Music Festival with Cage the Elephant, rocking the BMI stage at Lollapalooza 2011, and touring across the country from coast to coast. These guys are doing much more than (just) chasing girls these days. Since their first festival performances at Starry Nights and Next Big Nashville 2010, TKS have been successfully winning crowds over, headlining and sharing bills with J Roddy Walston and the business, Matt Costa, the Features, and Dex Romweber Duo. TKS have also seen their name on multiple major festival bills (Austin City Limits, SXSW, Lollapalooza, Langerado, Florida Music Fest).
Their latest EP, "Vacation Time," has created quite the buzz not only amongst fans, but industry executives alike. An original sound with older influences, these young men have nailed it. A west coast feel with classic rock roots, their solid rhythm section (Alexander Geddes, bass; Mattew DeMaio, drums) allow singer Ian Ferguson to show off his pristine and downright catchy vocals. Accompanied by James Guldry (guitar, keys, horn, banjo "utility man") the boys have mastered dreamlike harmonies and clever instrumental breakdowns. Their collaborative method of songwriting has given their performances and their EP a cohesive and unique energy. TKS have plans to release their first full-length, self-titled album spring of 2012. They have been recording the new album in Franklin, TN as if it were the 1970s again- all recorded to tape. From stage presence to sound, musicality to charm, The Kingston Springs are well on their way to the top - and by the looks of things, they are here to stay.
