BIOGRAPHY



KingShaolin

The wanting in rock and roll is the same passion for truth and love that exists in the heart of every child, every priest, every heart that beats. We want to tear down every wall that separates us from the wonder of being who we are. No bullshit, no dogma, no do it this way or that way. Do it from the head and heart and loins of your very soul. That is the rock and roll way. That is the essence of King Shaolin. Tell the truth of what you want. Be wholly alive to the rhythms of life, of pleasure, of being in the embrace of a beauty that will kill you, but be alive, alive and never stop pushing at that rock and roll mountain. New-Age Popsters KING SHAOLIN announce the release of their highly anticipated debut album Road To The Machiavelli Valley out December 15, 2012. Mixed in Los Angeles the album features 12 original tracks written by Dominik Stofko. King Shaolin offer a fresh take on the term soul-pop. Punchy and clear with well timed breaks and beats, King Shaolin's sound is a crisp, clean, soul-pop potpourri telling tales of life, love, and rowdy pleasure. Lead singer Dominik pounds out each word he sings with a passionate urgency, the lively lyrics spilling from his soul with hard won experience and burning with truth.
