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.

welcome browncoats!

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!

"Strolling down the gallery of memory" ~ Vanity Fair 

I’ve been avoiding LA.  Not because of traffic, not because of distance, not because of a lack of things I want to see, not because of some weird OC is better than LA bullshit but rather because of road construction.  

It takes an extra 30 minutes to get home any time I go to LA at night thanks to the 405 being closed and me having to navigate the shitty detour signs.  I called Siri a bitch twice tonight on the way home.  Doesn’t she know the 405 is closed?  Stop sending me back there!

What the hell is "Way Out West"?!? 

That's a fair question.  

The short answer is; It's a lyric in the song "Las Vegas".  Because when you're in Massachusetts - Las Vegas is technically Way Out West.

The much longer answer is it's a collection of songs that we've been playing and enjoying, most of which were written by friends of ours.  With the exception of "Jolene" and "Folsom Prison" as we in fact are not friends with Dolly Parton or Johnny Cash.  But the songs all seem to revolve around this theme of being here as opposed to there.  Here… Read more

Way Out West 

So I'm in the studio right now.  We haven't talked a lot about it but we're almost done with a new cd.  It's a bit of a love letter to the west coast...sort of.  We've been in California for 14 years now and a number of things have shaped us here.  We've had a host of things that have forever shaped not just us as people but also the music we make.
There's some new songs on there, there's some borrowed songs, there's some old songs on there ~ all done in with a new spirit.  We're calling it "Way Out West"… Read more

Update Aug 14 

Hey, so I got a message from someone today saying "You guys haven't been doing much lately."
I took this to mean that I was being lazy.  And, I suppose in the way of email correspondence that can be true.  

But here's the thing.  We've actually been doing a lot! 

We started recording an EP of songs* and all of a sudden we had like 12 songs tracked for it.  And then we wrote a few more...

AND we're way into the second  Leaves on the Wind CD.  We just worked out the second to last song for that disc.  

Oh, and we… Read more
