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!

We never got good at parking this car.  And for the record - the GPS in this Ford sucked.  We were three weeks in before we realized it was set on "Scenic Route".  We're wondering why it had us getting off the Autobahn and driving through these tiny roads (and sometimes non-roads!)

There's lots to tell and more to spill but here's the short and sweet:

"New Coastline" cds that we made for the European tour - yeah, we have sold out of them.  More will be made but not for a month or two.  The download is still available but we're out of the physical cds.

Speaking of things we are out of... We are also sold out of "Way Out West" cds.  We should have those back in pretty soon and again, download is still available.

Thanks to everyone for buying our cds - we can now say we "Sold Out".
