Rock and roll used to be about plugging in, turning up and letting go, but as rock has aged and changed that simple formula seems to have been forgotten for the most part. Unless you ask KING KARMA, a band fast becoming one of the most talked about new groups in the current resurgence of rock music!
Built upon the solid foundations provided by rhythm section TODD RONNING (bass) and RICK FEDYK (drums), KING KARMA's music is a gorgeous amalgamation of hard rock guitar riffs and introspective acoustic passages. Guitarist, MARKUS WOLFE succeeds, where many more famous names have failed, in that he plays with true feel and purely for the song, rather than simply to show his undoubted technical ability. To round out the line-up there's vocalist SHAUN WILLIAMSON, a man with more soul and raw emotion in his voice than a recording studio full of Boy Band Wannabes and Pop Idol hopefuls.
The group's fresh approach to rock music's most influential time in history garnered the attention of legendary producer, JIMMY JOHNSON, who flew the boys from the west coast of Canada to Muscle Shoals, Alabama and recorded the quartet's awe-inspiring debut. Johnson even goes so far as to say that KING KARMA is the best rock product he's worked on since Lynyrd Skynyrd back in the 70's.
While the band's official web site surpassed one million hits, KK songs Devil's Road and I'm Listening were featured in the Lions Gate Films/Vega Productions movie, "BLOODSUCKERS". The movie premiered on the SciFi Channel and is now slated to open in theatres throughout Europe and Asia .
In May 2005, KING KARMA signed with CENTURION RECORDS (a division of Centurion Music Group Inc.) The deal would include the North American release of KK's debut album with UNIVERSAL MUSIC as the distributor.
Upon its release the College Music Journal reported that KING KARMA's debut was the 15th most added disc to college radio playlists throughout the US and Canada. KK is now spinning on well over 300 college stations and charting in the top 30.
Last summer KK played select festival shows opening for such rock legends as, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Cheap Trick. The group traveled as far as South Dakota to the World Famous Sturgis Bike Rally opening for Kid Rock, Blue Oyster Cult and the reunited James Gang to name a few...
KING KARMA is currently writing new material and looking forward to touring once again in 2008!
