Kingdoms and Crowns, an alt blues-rock band from Boca Raton is putting out a new album, Leave a Light On, this fall. The band released their first EP Casey last year in May of 2013 and have graduated to recording full length albums, something rare for bands at a local level.
But as frontman Stratis Washburn (yes that's his real name and we got into that in the interview) explained, the band wanted to take full advantage of the time they had in the recording studio with engineer Andre Scheidt and this time an EP wasn't going to cut it.
Veterans of the local music scene in Broward and regulars at places like Dada in Delray, the band plans to showcase their new album with a buttload of local shows to start and then hit the road hard to get their music out there as much as possible.
We talked with Washburn about the new album, his name, the idea of being signed and his passion for photography.More »
