In 2014 Taylor Hecocks formed King Shelter in La Mirada, CA while studying music at university with the band's lead guitarist, David Noble, and bassist, John Harzan. King Shelter kicked the project off by playing local shows around Orange County for friends and local music fans after they self-released a DIY album that Hecocks produced and engineered. The name of their breakout project: “Failure” EP which was released independently in 2015. This project would prove to be their first real stamp on the Orange Country, CA music scene. King Shelter went from playing backyards before the release, to headlining the Constellation Room two months later, and eventually would move on to taking over the LA market - selling out The Echo in February of 2017. The band followed up their success with “Failure” EP by releasing a series of singles that were produced by Adam Castilla from the Colourist. The band is set to release their debut album, “$hame”, at the top of 2018 with Broken Entertainment.
Slut Island is the culmination of two really hot cool super talented and modest artists plus one shy boy who also plays bass in a church band but has to keep Slut Island a secret, singing about real life issues including hpv, net neutrality, sex in a graveyard, wanting to see someone you love die, being a bad church boy and much more.
