about us

The Fallen Stars are an Americana Rock band from Southern California that believes a good story can break your heart and a driving guitar riff can put it back together again, all in the space of a three minute song.

Are you a fan of Firefly? Then you'll love our new music project, Leaves on the Wind! Our goal is to write a brand new original song based on each episode of the tv series Firefly, plus the feature film Serenity. Fifteen songs in all - just right for a trilogy of EPs! Keep an eye on our Browncoats page to follow our progress!

Two Quick Things Podcast


Sorry about the two emails in one week.  I won't make a habit of it.  Just wanted to share with you 2 quick things.

1)  We have two shows left this year.*  Why is this such a big deal?  Didn't we play like 150 shows last year?  Well, that is true but we've decided to take a few months off from live shows to work on new stuff.  We have a new Firefly cd that's almost done and we've started work on a bunch of other stuff and we need to put in the time to make it happen.

Cd Release show update, guitar contest stuff, shows this week... 

An email on a Sunday night?  Yeah.  I know.  Weird huh.

Contest Update and stuff 


So I have been putting together the guitars for the contest.  I have two cool tele type guitars.  It's been pointed out to me that since I'm putting them together from parts, I can't actually call them "telecasters".  They are "Bobbocasters".

I've also heard some folks who are confused about the contest.  To clarify:

There are 2 contests:

Contest #1 - you video yourself singing our song "Massachusetts" and put it on Youtube.  We share the link here and then there is voting.  Winner gets a guitar.

Guitar Contest Update! 

We're really excited about all the interest in folks participating in our "Massachusetts" song/win a guitar contest!

And today - I talked to the good folks over at Franklin Guitar Straps and they are providing us with the straps for the winning guitars!

I know what you're thinking - "guitar straps?  I'll just go buy a cheap strap at GC!"  You of course can do this but I'm going to tell you that there really is a difference.  Yes, we do have a working relationship with Franklin but it's a relationship that… Read more
