B influences. These influences originate from each band members love for various genres, and widespread knowledge of music. The majority of Common Kings were born in the South Pacific, and raised in Orange County, California. Growing up with households full of colorful personality and vibrant passions for music, Common Kings members naturally grew up forming individual musical paths. This musical journey involved mimicking and listening to artists such as Van Morrison, Stevie Wonder, Geourge Benson, Jim Croce, Michael Jackson, The Who, Led Zepplin, Gypsy Kings, Earth Wind and Fire, Bob Marley and more. The culmination of these musicians explains exactly who the Common Kings are. Where everything comes to a point is through lead singer Sasualei Jr King Maliga. Jr King is perhaps one of the most powerfully impressive vocalists amongst todays leading artists. Born with this untrained raw-talent, Jr Kings singing ability seems boundless, as he amazes listeners with a wide range of belting notes and soulful passion. His humble demeanor off-stage needs no introduction as to when the band is rocking out on-stage creating a young, wild, and free atmosphere. With the current success of reaching over 350,000 single downloads, partnered with a live performance matched to none (recently showcased as a supporting act on Justin Timberlakes 20/20 World Experience Tour), Common Kings looks to keep the momentum alive while preparing for their first Album drop in fall of 2015.
