Biography

A cross-cultural pop/rock band heavily inspired by soul and reggae, Common Kings feature guitarist Taumata Grey, lead singer JR King, bassist Ivan Kirimaua, and drummer Jerome Taito. The musicians, whose roots are in Hawaii, Samoa, Fiji, and Tonga, operated out of Costa Mesa, California and busied themselves as a live act known for their laid-back but upbeat sound. They started releasing self-produced independent singles in 2011 and issued a pair of EPs, #WeOnTour Soundtrack and Summer Anthems, in 2013. Among the recordings they released in 2014 were "Your Turn," "Kingdom Come," and "Before You Go" -- all fully developed, radio-friendly singles. The following year, they released the six-track EP Hits & Mrs. and prepared an album. Lost in Paradise, the band's full-length debut, dropped in 2017 and featured production work from Poo Bear, DJ Flict, Dwayne "Supa Dups" Chin-Quee, Jens Koerkemeier, and Rami Jrade. ~ Andy Kellman
