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.

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!

Update Aug 14 

Hey, so I got a message from someone today saying "You guys haven't been doing much lately."
I took this to mean that I was being lazy.  And, I suppose in the way of email correspondence that can be true.  

But here's the thing.  We've actually been doing a lot! 

We started recording an EP of songs* and all of a sudden we had like 12 songs tracked for it.  And then we wrote a few more...

AND we're way into the second  Leaves on the Wind CD.  We just worked out the second to last song for that disc.

tour riders 

It's almost 4 am and I'm just going to bed now.  Been up late tonight doing Stageplots and Technical Tour Rider things for our upcoming European Tour.  

I made sure to make it fun to look at;  I cut out our faces from pictures and put them on the stageplot.  That's sure to make it easier!

Great weekend, lots of driving. 

Hey!  So Tracy and I did 2 acoustic shows this weekend.  

That doesn't seem like much, just acoustic shows?  

Well, we drove 430 miles, played 6 hours of music and did 8 sets of music!

Kind of the equivalent of 8 shows in 2 days.  

We're tired now.  Tracy is sleeping and tomorrow night we're back in the studio to work on new music.  Want to make sure we're ready for our European tour.  Can't wait to play the Riddle & The Stars songs again too.  Where's Ben?  We miss that Aussie weirdo!


Camp Pendleton, VW Event, Bigs Country Night, New Hampshire show 

Things are always busy here and we keep truckin on but sometimes you do a gig and it's different.  Now, hear me out - we play lots of shows and we love doing them all but when we got asked to play at Camp Pendleton last weekend for their Rodeo Days, well - that was something different.  

I may sound off from time to time from my soapbox but we're all just people.  This isn't left/right or red/blue - and these folks were thankful to us for coming and playing their event.  Simply amazing, and here we are… Read more
