Biography

Kings & Queens is a music project from Nevada City, California. The dark Sierra Nevada forest and the hot skies of the Mojave yielded a new song book for singer, guitarist and closet Englishman Rich Good, after the demise of his first California band “the Pleased” (with Noah Georgeson and Joanna Newsom). This music trips down the mountain to the desert, landscape affecting sound. Kings & Queens is darkly psychedelic pop sparkling with tints of Peter Green-era Fleetwood Mac, Neu!, Roxy Music and Nick Drake. There’s a restless tension in these songs that will get under your skin; a layer cake of delayed guitars and analog organs twist and grind while harmony vocals float above a relentless rhythm section. It will see you warmed and alarmed.

The current Kings & Queens players are Rich and Andrea Good, Pete Newsom, David Torch, and Art Echternacht.

Story so far: In 2006 the first Kings & Queens EP was self-released closely followed by the LP ‘The Dream Ends in Fury’. The band also contributed a live track to the Grass Roots Record Co. ‘Family Album’. 2007 yielded another set of songs that formed the second EP including the epic ‘Celebrate’ and ‘Like a Warning’ that were quickly snapped up by RCRD_LBL, and the fuzzy dance of ‘Olbers’ Paradox’ which found its way on into a british art experiment.
