ABOUT

The Secret Kings began their collaborative work later that year slowly whittling out the songs that would become their first album, Sonitus. After braving the studio on their own The Kings finally released Sonitus early in 2010, and are now hoping they will have the opportunity to share their music with the world.

With influences ranging from The Beatles to Miles Davis, The Secret Kings endeavor to forge a sound that invokes their musical heroes in a way all their own. Their music ranges from the pop driven rock sounds of "Here with Me" to the ambient haunting melodies of "Don't Hide". With songs like these The Secret Kings hope to prove that they have what it takes to move the hearts and minds of their fans.
