About Us

The Fallen Stars are an Americana Rock band from Southern California that believes a good story can break your heart and a driving guitar riff can put it back together again, all in the space of a three minute song.

"Listen to the Fallen Stars' Americana, and you hear a great, rollicking band. But see them live, and it's the difference between Elvis in the studio and early 1970s Elvis, when he was starting shows with "Also Sprach Zarathustra," then owning crowds with just a sneer of the lip. Don't believe us? Catch them live and find out for yourself."
~OC Weekly Best Live Band 2015

Welcome Browncoats!

Are you a fan of Firefly? Then you'll love our new music project, Leaves on the Wind! Our goal is to write a brand new original song based on each episode of the tv series Firefly, plus the feature film Serenity. Fifteen songs in all - just right for a trilogy of EPs! Keep an eye on our Browncoats page to follow our progress!

So we're all sad and tired here in TFS/RATS land* - Ben flew out to France last Friday** and then Tracy and I went and played Whedonopolis in Los Angeles.  If you're a fan of Joss Whedon's work*** then you would've had a great time.  We had a great time and even got to play 2 sets of our Firefly "Leaves on the Wind Music Project" at their prom night.  It was Shiny.**** 

Now I have two shows this coming weekend.  Why just me?  Well, a couple of reasons;  1) I booked a solo show.  2) Tracy needs some…

Weekend tour wrap up. 

Thursday night we headed down to Alta to start the weekend off easy with an acoustic show but when we got there the lights were out and they were closed because of a power outage.  Bummer.  We send messages to hopefully get to everyone in time so they don't come down to a closed coffee shop and decide - it's Cinco de Mayo - let's go get Himalayan food!  For real.  It was delicious and then we went home and packed to leave. 

Before we embarked on our 1300 mile weekend I had some…
