We The Kings
Over the past two months I have fallen head over hills for WE THE KINGS . I've heard of them from their song they did with Demi Lovato " We'll Be A Dream " but I never took the time to listen to their music. About 2 months ago I came across this YouTube page " CTFxC " is was a daily vlog of a husband and wife ( Charles and Alli Trippy ) . The husband was in a band traveling and his wife was at home or traveling herself. As I watched the videos , I was thinking to myself this man looks very familiar and so does his band mates. So in one of the videos they mentioned the name of the band WE THE KINGS ( epiphany moment) ( Travis Clark – lead vocals, rhythm guitar,Hunter Thomsen – lead guitar,Danny Duncan – drums ,Charles Trippy - bass , and Coley O'Toole - piano, backing vocals, guitar) !!! WOW !! I had to look their music up . By watching Charles Trippy's vlog i kinda got to know the band ( in a weird way) but they all seemed really cool and I just had to listen to their music. So i checked out a couple of their songs on YouTube. I totally fell in love. So i went to Itunes and bought their latest cd " Sunshine State of Mind" and I got their EP " Party , Fun , Love & Radio" i love every song on both of the cds . I still have to purchase their old cds ( when i get a job lol ). They are such an amazing band.
I also came across Travis Clark's blog I started reading it from the beginning ( its took me a while but i read it ) He is such a genuine person . The of his post hit home , it was the one about how he felt after his break up. His emotions that he wrote was how i was feeling 6 months ago . For him to open up like that and be so real. WOW!! I have so much respect for him .i felt everything that he wrote all i wanted to do was give him a hug.
I would love to meet WE THE KINGS. Honestly we all would be best friends , especially me and Travis ( and its not just because Travis is such a cutie ) . Hopefully they will come back to Chicago sometime this year . They were her for the Vans Warped Tour but I was out of town and didn't make it back in time :( ( bummer) .
But Im glad I can say Im a fan of WE THE KINGS and if you havent heart of them please check them out you will not be disappointed .
