"Built upon the solid foundations provided by rhythm section TODD RONNING (bass) and RICK FEDYK (drums), KING KARMA's music is a gorgeous amalgam of hard rock guitar riffs and introspective acoustic passages, sometimes within the same song. Guitarist MARKUS WOLFE succeeds, where many more famous names have failed, in that he plays with true feel and purely for the song, rather than simply to show his undoubted technical ability. To round out the line-up there is vocalist SHAUN WILLIAMSON, a man with more soul and raw emotion in his voice than a recording studio full of boy band wannabes and Pop Idol hopefuls."

The group's fresh approach to rock music's most influential time in history garnered the attention of legendary producers, JIMMY JOHNSON(Lynyrd Skynyrd, Rolling Stones...) who flew the boys from the west coast of Canada to Muscle Shoals, Alabama and recorded the quartet's awe-inspiring debut. Johnson even goes so far as to say that KING KARMA is the best rock product he's worked on since Skynyrd back in the 70's.
"This release takes you back to a time when you actually needed talent to be considered a "musician" and not simply an image."

KING KARMA's song "Into The Everlast" was voted "Track Of The Day" over 6,000 other hard rock hopefuls on Garageband.com along with winning "Best Male Vocals", "Best Guitar Performance", "Best Bass Performance" and "Most Rocking Track".
"King Karma rips at the soul of rock and roll with crunchy guitars, groove laced vocals and a diversity of great rock songs. Do your collection a favor and pick up this disc."

As of late KING KARMA's debut remains in the top ten most downloaded hard rock albums on MP3tunes.com and continues to top underground radio charts. This summer KK's songs "Devil's Road" and "I'm Listening" were in the soundtrack for the Vega Productions/Lions Gate Films movie, "BLOODSUCKERS", a Sci-Fi described as 'Buffy meets Star Trek in a Mad Max world'.
"King Karma occupies that timeless twilight inhabited by the likes of Badlands, Bad Company, Zeppelin and more recently Audioslave."

The 12 song disc was recorded at Mushroom Studios in Vancouver, Canada and 3614 Jackson Highway, the original location of the world famous "Muscle Shoals Sound Studio" in Alabama, where producers Jimmy Johnson and Steve Melton have pumped out hit after hit through the 70's, 80's and 90's. Jimmy was captured on film mixing in the very same studio in the Rolling Stones movie, "Gimme Shelter". The final mixes were completed in the summer of 2003 at "Swamper Sound Studios" in Sheffield, Alabama.
With now well over a million hits on the band's official web site, its no wonder the buzz on this amazing new rock group is surfacing fast, leaving all those surrounding them with a feeling of excitement and anticipation of what's to come!
