Kingsfall

Kingsfall — a band of Texans with a whole lot of heart and an even stronger sound — will make you believe that change is on the way with one simple play of their “If Only.” Or, if you are feeling a little aimless, “you must look to something bigger than yourself,” which happens to be the message in their song “Love,” a catchy melodic number with John Mayer radio play potential.

With Kingsfall’s recent Famecast success — they beat 2,432 bands in a rock contest — and their current 99.96 Buzz Factor in the Play Mayercraft contest — in which you can vote for them to win a gig with Mayer himself — this band will not be a secret for long.

As far as the age-old dream of becoming a rock star goes, few get the chance to be the kind of musician they want. That’s not the case for the members of Kingsfall.

For Josh Dufrene, a “small town” guy who grew up in Carthage, Texas, it’s not about the glitz and glamour. “I get tired of songs with no real purpose,” he said about his desire to create music that “impacts life,” rather than promotes mindless materialism. When he writes lyrics, he thinks: “How can I get the listener to feel what I’m feeling?”

In fact, this lead vocalist and guitarist shared a story about one listener in Fort Worth, Texas who was really feeling the music. As the band was leaving a coffee shop gig, Dufrene spotted a 14-year-old girl who had been to multiple shows crying on the curb outside.

When he asked her what was wrong she said she was upset because she didn’t have any money to buy their album. Though he didn’t have any left, he pointed her toward bass player Larry Leicht. After she nearly gave Leicht a heart attack from banging on his car window, her eyes lit up with joy as she ran home with the free CD.

Maybe it’s this Southern charm of theirs, or maybe it’s just that they’re really good at what they do. Either way, this band will uplift your mood and their rank on your most played list.

Lyrics for "Dream"
By Josh Dufrene

Nothing unusual is happening today
Nothing crazy fills my life any more, everything just seems so grey
I remember the drives we took in the night
I remember the look I saw in your eyes
And you're so far from me know
When I am dreaming of you I am alive
I am in heaven when you're by my side
Breathing is hoping that maybe, one day I’ll be where you are
I don't want anyone to wake me
If it takes me away from a dream of you

I can't imagine the way that I would feel
To have you close to me anytime that I want
I won't believe it's real

I remember what happened the moment I took your hand in mine
I'm dreaming of you

Lyrics for "LOVE"
By Josh Dufrene

Oh how can you believe in something, something that you cannot feel?
This life is a mess
This life is distress
You carry the load that you have if you can
You must look to something bigger than yourself
To carry the load that you have


'Cause it's hard alone, you don't have to be so strong
Chorus: Oh how can you believe in something?
Something that you cannot feel
We were made to take over the world with love
Love that has the power to heal

You've done what you can
You're taking a stand
Don't count on yourself for much more than you should
You must look to something
Something bigger than yourself
To carry the load that you have

'Cause it's hard alone, you don't have to be so strong

Oh how can you believe in something?
Something that you cannot feel
We were made to take over the world with love
Love that has the power to heal

And it's so hard to change
Change your life, your ways
But you're somewhere else again
And it’s so hard to show
Show the world your soul
But you're somewhere else again
Oh, you're somewhere else again
Yeah

Oh how can you believe in something?
Something that you cannot feel
We were made to take over the world with love
Love that has the power to heal
Oh how can you believe in something
Something that you cannot feel
We were made to take over the world with love
Love that has the power to heal
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Love that has the power to heal.
