Profile
The Rock and Roll band Little King was formed in November of 1996 by guitarist / singer / songwriter Ryan Rosoff in El Paso, Texas. Rosoff had cut his teeth as the guitar player in the eclectic rock group Tweed Quickly (where he met future Little King bassist Shannon Brady). After a year in that band, he had written enough of his own songs to try his hand at recording and producing a record. Rosoff named the new group Little King (a translation of the name "Ryan" in Gaelic).
