2016, In 1983, Michael Thompson and Billy Trudel were introduced to each other. They were brought together by manager Steve Brooks and Producer/Engineer, Wyn Davis to form a new band called Slang. They worked hard in the studio and out playing shows to get this new project noticed but nothing seemed to work in their favor. After two years of struggling, they started to adventure into other projects. Since that time both Michael and Billy became well established in their music carriers, backing up some of the biggest artist in the music industry. Then in 2011, Michael and Billy re-connected and decided to finish that record they always wanted to make. That was the birth of the Culver Kingz. The band name came from both of them living in Culver City and writing and recording everything in Michael's studio. Now all these years later they are thrilled to come back full circle and do what they do best, make music. If you like bands such as Matchbox 20 and Santana this album is definitely for you!!!
