The story of the genre defying Kings Of Kudos starts over a decade ago when Stephen Housden (Guitar/Vocals)and Les Sampson (drums) were playing regularly together with Noel Redding (Jimi Hendrix Experience).
After various line-ups in different bands together, Les and Stephen decided to form a band to play original music. Recording of the soon to be released ‘West Of Everywhere’ was started with guest musicians. In 2012 with the addition of Mike Geaney (Bass) the Kings Of Kudos had arrived.
Stephen Housden (the band’s main writer) toured the world for many years as a member of 'Little River Band' . He has played and recorded with many great musicians including; Dr. John, Warren Zevon, Noel Redding (Jimi Hendrix Experience) John Entwistle, Glen Frey and Albert Lee.
