When Larry Leicht (bass), Devin Dean (guitars/vocals), Daniel Lopez (drums), and Joshua Dufrene (guitars/vocals) came together in 2006 to form Kingsfall, they all had one thing in common. They had all grown up in or around music for most of their lives. And it soon became clear that they all had a common vision of taking their unique sound to the masses. Based in Dallas, this exciting and energetic band with their own distinct sound has been compared to Mutemath, Coldplay, Third Eye Blind and Switchfoot, who they opened up for this past year at Baylor University. They put much emphasis on throwing a great live show and spread a message of hope with tenacity and aggressiveness. Their self titled debut CD is receiving airplay and rave reviews from industry leaders, critics, manufacturers and fans alike. Going into the studio this month to complete their follow up CD, 2010 looks to be a promising year for Kingsfall.
"Kingsfall is the kind of good that should have record labels fighting over them; the kind of good that took Switch-foot from being a popular band in San Diego to a household name all over the world."

One of the best parts of my job is to be able to "...
One of the best parts of my job is to be able to "discover" new music and bands and then share them with you, my friends and readers. And while I normally don't introduce Indie Find's until Mondays, these guys are simply too good to wait the extra 4 days. Plus, this coming Saturday at midnight they will be appearing on the Daystar Network's show "Soundcheck," and you don't want to miss the chance to see them perform.
So, on that note, it gives me great pleasure to introduce Kingsfall...the next big thing to come out of Dallas, Texas.
Larry Leicht, Devin Dean, Daniel Lopez, and Joshua Dufrene share a vison of taking the music that stirs their hearts and souls to the masses, both in and out of the church. For them it's not just a job or even an adventure, it's a calling that they can't deny. They share their passion through their music and they strive to change lives, one heart at a time.
After getting a note from lead singer Josh Dufrene asking if I could recommend any booking agents, I checked out their MySpace page. I got interested during "Believe," got pumped with "Dream" and had become a fan by the time "All My Life" played. I just got the pleasure of getting to listen to a rough recording of a brand new song called "If Only" and I have no doubt at all that once they get it mixed, mastered and put up on their MySpace page, they'll probably clog the MySpace servers with listeners!
That song and this band it that good! Yep-Kingsfall is the kind of good that should have record labels fighting over them; the kind of good that took Switchfoot from being a popular band in San Diego to a household name all over the world.
Mark my words folks...Kingsfall is a name that you're going to hear a lot more of in the future. They've got it all...the talent, the drive, and most of all, the heart for ministry and a commitment to take God's music and message to the world.

Kingsfall Raises the Roof
Kicking off our evening’s entertainment at the Whisky is
Dallas-based quartet Kingsfall, who have already enjoyed quite a successful 2009, having emerged victorious in a pair of major music competitions this year. They bring some solid
rock right off the bat, eliciting whistles and shouts from the
crowd for their meticulous melodies and thunderous rhythm
section, all underscoring frontman Joshua Dufrene’s soaring
vocal lines and inspirational lyrical messages. The song
“Believe” was a particular standout, an autobiographical tale
of Dufrene’s about believing in achieving your goals in life;
the song had the Whisky audience mesmerized, swaying in
unison and paying rapt attention to the marvelous musicianship emanating from the stage. Though they sing the lyric “We
can’t predict the future,” allow us to engage in a bit of soothsaying: Kingsfall is a name you’ll want to remember!
