Cody Wyoming and Kimmie Queen have been creating music as a couple in Kansas City for 12 years. They have carefully selected four Kansas City musicians to join their heavy psychedelic infused rock group, The Philistines. Cody writes most of the group’s songs on guitar and sings. Kimmie is the group’s lead singer, and unofficial lead dancer on stage as well.

The Philistines released their debut full length “The Backbone Of The Night” on Kansas City’s label “The Record Machine” in May.
