Four life-long friends from Northern California grew up obsessed with the sounds of AC/DC, The Beatles, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, The Doors, The Bee Gees and Michael Jackson. Living within a block of each other since kindergarten, they began playing anywhere and everywhere with a stage by the age of 16, taking over supper clubs, parties, and backyard barbecues.
After their single “Make It Real” cracked 2 million Spotify streams, they made a collective decision to forego college and trade their small Sacramento suburb for Hollywood, forming Vista Kicks in late 2015. Living together in a cramped one-bedroom apartment, the quartet—Derek Thomas, Sam Plecker, Trevor Sutton, and Nolan Le Vine—quietly ignited a buzz throughout L.A releasing their debut EP “Chasing Waves” and beyond with a handful of national tours and a recent UK 2018 tour.
The band now resides on the East side of Los Angeles in Highland Park, where they still live together and have a personal recording studio. They recorded and produced their last 2 full length LP's: Booty Shakers Ball & Twenty Something Nightmare in their home studio for anybody and everybody to listen and enjoy.
