IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What city and state are you from?
ALL TIME KINGS: We are from a small town on the East Coast of Canada called Annapolis Royal, which is located in the Province of Nova Scotia.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What is your music background?
ALL TIME KINGS: Well we are from a country and classic rock area where that’s what the majority of people around here listen to. It’s more a rural area than urban. We decided that they weren’t our genre of music. We were more interested in the hip hop and R&B scene so we stuck with that lifestyle.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: Why do you want to record and release your own music?
ALL TIME KINGS: It started off as a hobby and we enjoyed it so much we started recording and releasing songs to see what other people think. To our surprise people liked it so much they wanted us to pursue it for real. This inspired us to show them our point of view, thoughts, and things we went through in hopes that people can relate to it and get them through similar problems.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What are your songs about?
ALL TIME KINGS: Our songs come in different varieties, like having fun and partying. We have “Party People” “Nova Scotia Turn Up” and “Friday.” Then we got deep emotional songs about problems we been through like “Black Roses” and “Won’t Go Down.” Then there’s songs about our group as a family such as “United” and the highly anticipated record to be released soon “ATK 4 life” . So were pretty much showing all the different views of our life, either good or bad through our music.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: Who is your fan base directed towards?

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: How would you describe your music to people?
ALL TIME KINGS: It’s different, highly energetic, yet at times we know when to be calm and serious. We try to keep things new and exciting, and also spontaneous. We like to keep our fan base guessing what are we going to create next because we would want the artists we watch to do the same thing.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What makes you stand out from other artists?
ALL TIME KINGS: We are a three man crew. We come at each and every song at three different angles with three different styles and three different stories based around the main topic of the song. We try to use every style of beats for example we could be doing a hardcore song one day and the next we could be have a song with more singing, or be incorporating dubstep and other genres of music into ours.
