You have to admit you’ve been wondering too – where’s the new rock n' roll? It has been some time since something really amazing has come out, but that wait is now over. Fast becoming one of the most talked about bands in the current resurgence of Classic Rock is KING KARMA!

"Make no mistake, this is one band that is going to carve their own niche with their own sound, that will revolutionize rock music as we know it."

Built upon the solid foundations provided by rhythm section Todd Ronning (bass) and Rick Fedyk (drums), KING KARMA's music is a gorgeous amalgam of hard rock guitar riffs and introspective acoustic passages. Guitarist Markus Wolfe succeeds, where many more famous names have failed, in that he plays with true feel and purely for the song, rather than simply to show his undoubted technical ability. To round out the line-up there is vocalist Shaun Williamson, a man with more soul and raw emotion in his voice than a recording studio full of boy band wannabes and Pop Idol hopefuls.

The group's fresh approach to Classic Rock influences garnered the attention of famed producers Jimmy Johnson and Steve Melton (Lynyrd Skynyrd, Rolling Stones, Cry Of Love) who flew the boys from the west coast of Canada to Muscle Shoals, Alabama and recorded the quartet’s awe-inspiring debut. Johnson even goes so far as to say that KING KARMA is the "best rock product since he worked with Lynyrd Skynyrd back in the 70’s."

"This release takes you back to a time when you actually needed talent to be considered a "musician" and not simply an image."

Within only a few months of its independent release KING KARMA's debut disc began receiving major exposure all over the Internet, generating rave reviews and winning over new fans throughout the world. Upstate New York's WiTR was the first radio station to list the band's disc in the top ten best CD releases of the year. Their song "Into The Everlast" was voted "Track Of The day" over 6,000 other hard rock hopefuls on They've received "Band of the Month" and "Artist of the Week" awards on several music sites from around the globe while Ohio's WFXJ notably spins their song "Blue Monday" every Monday night.

As of late, KING KARMA have been playing live showcases close to home, leaving a trail of blown away fans, while gearing up for that inevitable next step to world wide touring. The buzz is surfacing fast as news of this amazing new band continues to spread, leaving all those surrounding the group with a feeling of excitement and anticipation of what's to come!
