Rock band releases second EP of Firefly-inspired music. The Fallen Stars' Leaves on the Wind collection continues with "No Power in the 'Verse Can Stop Me".

Southern California Americana rock band, the Fallen Stars, features passionate Browncoats Tracy and Bobbo who set themselves the challenge of writing a song for each episode of Firefly. This second of three planned EPs includes songs inspired by "Our Mrs. Reynolds", "Jaynestown", "Out of Gas", "Ariel" and "War Stories". A portion of proceeds goes to Equality Now, and the band is a global sponsor of Can't Stop the Serenity 2015.

Not sure I would classify their music as Rock. Very country/filk sounding. Not for me.
The Leaves on the Wind collection does have songs that skew folk with acoustic/folk instrumentation (such as "Goodnight Kiss" or "Stronger Than Steel") inspired by the vibe and music of Firefly. There are also songs that are more electric/rock (such as "Miracle" and "Big Damn Hero"). The larger library of songs of The Fallen Stars is Americana Rock. They also collaborate with Ned Riddle as Riddle and the Stars with their latest album together having more country/folk-ness to it.
