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

Guitar Geek Type Posting: 

A number of years ago I met Greg Bennett of Franklin Straps while coming out of a Sam Ash music store. I had just purchased one of his cotton cinch straps for my acoustic.

So we have a new Firefly song up for sharing. We think it's pretty bad ass. (For Firefly Song Info Click Here) The new song is called "Nothing" and it’s inspired by the episode “Bushwhacked.” Enjoy! I had a friend tell me that it sounded like Tom Petty in space. That's pretty cool. We had some great help on drums by Brian Matteson and Matt Froehlich…Read more
