Exile Kings is a NYC based indie music project started by Manoo Halati. After a year playing around with some ideas for songs and putting his creative skill to the test, Manoo decided to quit his desk job in late 2008 to begin recording and playing music in earnest.

"I had turned into someone I didn't recognize and needed to make some changes. I decided to quit my job and take a couple months to regroup. It was during this time of quiet and introspection that I began connecting with music in ways I hadn't for years. The months I spent writing and recording this album were the first time I truly felt connected with myself."

Soon after leaving work Manoo hooked up with producer Craig Levy. Together they began laying down tracks at Craig's home studio in Brooklyn, NY and experimenting with song arrangements that are heavily laced with Manoo's interests in experimental, indie rock, and folk.

Somewhere along the line it became clear that they were making an album. Manoo came up with a name for the project that he thought encompassed the stories and energy found within each song and Exile Kings first album "Shine" was born.
