King Straggler is Rodney Eastman, John Hawkes, Brentley Gore, and Danny Thompson. Eastman and Hawkes met playing brothers on an independent film. Eastman and Gore had begun to write songs together. In the spring of 2003, in Los Angeles, they formed King Straggler.

From the outset the group has derived their unique sound by taking equal share in singing and songwriting duties, becoming three frontman with contrasting styles that dovetail into rich musical textures and colorful vocal blends. Their songs range from the hopeful to the haunted, from tattered folk to noisy rock to tear-it-up country and beyond. Music for dirty saints and wide-eyed wanderers. After adding a rhythm section (Douglas Grean: bass and Danny Thompson: drums) they gained a loyal following playing at venues such as the Knitting Factory, Hotel Cafe, and Spaceland -- culminating in a standing-room-only residency at Highland Grounds in Los Angeles.

Championed by Scott Weiland (Stone Temple Pilots), they recorded a full-length CD at his headquarters, Lavish Studios, with Grean engineering and co-producing. Most recently, the group recorded songs with Ima Robot guitarist (and independent producer) Timmy Anderson. King Straggler has had songs featured in several films. Among them is the closing credits theme for "The Moguls", starring Jeff Bridges, due for release later this year.

King Straggler's self-titled debut was released in February 2005. It continues to impress and has received steady play on L.A.'s Indie 103.1fm. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
