Dallas singer-songwriter BJ Stricker premieres new single “The Kings of State Street”

Singer-songwriter BJ Stricker and his band The Kings of State Street are set to release their single “Kings of State Street” this Friday, July 29. A long way from home, musician BJ Stricker was born and raised in a small town in Wisconsin and performed for years as a solo artist before setting his sights on a music career in Dallas-Fort Worth in 2014 and forming his group. An effortless blend of alternative rock, jazz-fusion, and bluegrass, Stricker writes deep, meaningful lyrics hidden under laid-back, easy-to-listen to instrumentals. The band will celebrate their single release at a party on July 29 at The Prophet Bar in Deep Ellum with supporting acts Blue Apollo, Bronco Simmons, and Bryce Frazier. Tickets to the show are $10 online or at the door. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and the event is open to all ages.

Dallas-based musicians Connor Pickle (percussion), Ben Shook (lead guitar), Michael Johnson (bass guitar), and Ryan Dahir (saxophone) of The Kings of State Street teamed up with Stricker  (acoustic guitar/lead vocals) and engineer/producer Josh Franklin to record their new single “The Kings of State Street.” Mixed and mastered by Aaron Carpenter, the single and band name was inspired by State Street, a popular spot in Madison, Wisconsin. The single, the first track off the group’s forthcoming album out next year, was recorded at Dallas-based recordings fifty50studios.

“I wrote this single for a group of characters I created in my head,” said Stricker. “The Kings are legendary musicians, almost mythical, who only come out of the dark to play on the streets.”
