Former solo artist Keith Varon's new band, Angels Landing, generate enough power live to fuel a fleet of SR-71s to otherworldly spheres and beyond. Thundering verses, towering choruses, and transcendent melodies ignite this flight, and if the band's debut EP, 'Magnetic,' is any indication, the fleet is gone for good
Hailing from the CIty of Angels, Angels Landing are a rock / pop trio comprised of Keith Varon - vocals / guitar, Kyle Grant - bass, and George Lind - drums. Vocalist Varon's solo work has been featured on acclaimed MTV shows such as 'Laguna Beach,' 'The Hills,' and 'NEXT,' alongside ABC's 'What About Brian,' and E!'s 'Paradise City.' Varon has also toured extensively throughout his career, opening for a slew of notable artists, including Fastball, Edwin McCain, Vertical Horizon, and Stroke 9. Moreover, Varon is an established songwriter / producer for Radar / BMG publishing and has worked with the likes of Clinton Sparks (Interscope), Stars in Stereo, and Robert Marvin (Adam Lambert, Mat Kearney, Kelly Sweet)
Bassist Kyle Grant, formerly of the pop / punk band Coexist (Finger Records) and drummer George Lind - of The Higher (Epitaph Records) and Josiah Leming (American Idol) notoriety - round out the group, a seasoned rhythm section who've collectively been a mainstay on the Vans Warped Tour since '07, opening for countless world-renowned acts in the process. Grant (aka Fantom West) is also a budding producer / composer in his own right and has worked with bands such as Leaving July, Hazard of the Industry, and Coradina. Likewise, he has collaborated with music supervisor David Ari Leon (Marvel, ABC, Fox), composing numerous scores and soundtracks, including the 7-song electro soundscape for 'Robot Race,' a heavily anticipated game app from Easley-Dunn Games
