Empire (comprised of Kale Kneale, Jeremy Fowler, Nathan Cairns, and Kyle Lane)
has mastered the ability to create music as refreshing as their beach-bred roots.
With an agenda to produce music that
listeners can get lost in and explore, New Empire’s sound introduces
refreshing, complex, and authentic tunes that will truly envelope and awe.
It’s that talent, matched with their Down Under
upbringing, that provided them a multitude of opportunities to play with

on the horizon, we see but a glimpse of what’s to come.
Get ready to get lost in a new sound. Get
ready for New Empire.
