King Fabbs Says a Bit About Music, Playing, and More!

Pop punk artist KING FABBS has an EP out, with a new single expected within the next few months, with him at a work in progress at his debut album! His first live show just took place, with the next set of plans to be to play more shows and traveling! Find out what else he had to say about his music and more below.

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

The history behind King Fabbs is very straight forward. I am a solo Pop Punk artist from Calgary, Alberta, Canada! I write all my  music myself. I’m a solo act, but I’m not alone on this journey. My producer and my good friend Brennan Kennedy is very important to the process as he records, edits, mixes, and masters all my music. He also played drums on the record, as well as some synth/piano parts. I started writing the EP in January of 2020, we recorded it in September 2020, and I made my debut on July 2nd, 2021!

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

King Fabbs is a nickname I picked up for a short period when I was in high school. I decided to bring it back to life when I created my Instagram account several years ago, but it also felt like the perfect name to carry into this. 

“King” for me is like a mentality. It’s being the best person I can be every single day, it’s always giving 100% in everything that I do. It’s being selfless, and constantly reflecting on my humbling experiences. “King” is like a reminder to always be a good human. 

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

I’m from Calgary, Alberta, Canada, and the music scene in Calgary is pretty diverse from my perspective. A lot of people here are big into country music, and we also have a big scene that’s into Blues, folk, and Indie music. An area in Calgary that’s called “Inglewood” is also known as the music mile. The music mile has live music almost every week in some of the pubs that go along the road. Some local bands I would recommend are Bellevue, Kate Stevens, and Silvering. 

4. How would you describe your style?

I would describe my style as a bit of a cross over between Pop Punk from the 2000’s, and some modern day Pop Punk. I do get into a lot different types of music as well. But I love music that is based out of the elements of rock. 

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

I have released a five song EP. I released an EP first because I want to give people a really solid impression of me. I plan to press on in this genre, while also collaborating with other artists inside or outside the genre of Pop Punk. Expect more music that has pop melodies and hooks, and a bright feeling to it.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

I have a single I’m going to be releasing in a few months. I’ll be announcing in a few weeks on what the exact day will be. I’m also in the planning stage of my first music video! I will have more details for that in the coming weeks. I’m looking into the future and trying to see when I can begin the process at a full length album! 

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

I just had my first live show on August 8th, 2021 at a venue in Calgary, Alberta called ContainR. Live shows are really coming back now so I’m looking out for opportunities to perform. I’m also looking into going on tour!

 8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

I want to be able to travel and play lots of shows, I want to be able to get to a point where I can create lots of full length albums and share it with the world. I also want to be able to collaborate with other artists!

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

My music is available on all streaming platforms, (Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, etc) It can also be found on Soundcloud, my website, and Bandcamp. My music can be bought on those websites, and I’m going to be selling merch soon which will also be available on my website! 

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

I want them to remember how it made them feel and I hope I can create a positive and long lasting impression on them when they hear it for the first time. I hope the listeners can connect with the words and find their own meaning within each song.
